This Tutorial was written on July 30th 2013 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
Do not translate or script.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Jennifer Janesko
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE
I used a paper from the kit I'm using to color the blanket or dress that's covering her to match the kit
This is purely optional if you'd like to or not. You'd have to use a black and white image to do so as per TOUs

Scrapkit of Choice
I am using the scrapkit “Teal Dream” by ChiChi Designz
You can find this HERE

Mask of Choice
I am using Mask219 by Weescotslass Creations
You can find this for download HERE

Additional Filters
PhotoEffex – Scanlines
Eye Candy 4000 – HSB Noise

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open frame3
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 65%
Add a drop shadow

Open Paper4
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 6
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Duplicate the paper layer
Filter → PhotoEffex → Scanlines
All at default, except the width, change to 3
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open PetalBrush
Add it in between the two paper layers a couple of times
Erase any that's outside of the frames

Open Paper3
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add your tube to your canvas, resize and reposition to your liking
Erase any of the tube that's outside the bottom of the frame
Have this just below the frame
Move this layer to just above the frame
Erase any of the tube that's over the frame
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:

BubbleBrush (no drop shadow)
BubbleBrush (no drop shadow)
Net (no drop shadow)
Glittersplat (no drop shadow)
Glittersplat (no drop shadow)
Glittersplat (no drop shadow)
Diamond (add this 2 more times for a total of three, merge them together and add a drop shadow to the merged layer)

Add your name

Crop your tag to get rid of the access space that's not needed

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with your result save to your liking and you're done!

Now if you want to animate let's continue!

Go to your diamonds and dangles layers
Duplicate each of them 3 times so you have a total of 4 of each layer

On the first layer of each
Filter → Eye Candy 4000 → HSB Noise
With the following settings:

You can use the same one on each of the two layers so you don't have to change the random seed for both

Repeat this though and when you're on the second layer of each hit random seed once
And on the third hit it once
and on the fourth hit it once

Then in the animation window have it set to go forever with a delay of .3 seconds
On the first layer hide all of the layers except for the bottom of each

Add a new layer and hide the first layer and unhide the second
Do this for the other layers
Press play and watch it go

If you're happy with it save as a .gif and you're done!

Here is a non animated version of the tag
