Plug In's Used
Mura's Meister - Copies
PhotoEffex - Scanlines
Open a new image 700 x 700. Paste element 2 Oval frame as a new layer. Re size 80%. Using raster deform tool. stretch out the sides to make it more circular.
Duplicate. Close copy off for now we will use this later. Working on our original. Select all and float. Add a new raster layer and flood fill with a colour taken from your tube. Select None.Change blend mode to overlay then merge layer down and drop shadow.
Paste element 54 flower and re size 50 %. Apply Mura's copies settings below and once encircled re size layer 112%. Again duplicate and close visibility of copy. Move layer down in palette so that its above closed frame copy.Working on original, change hue and saturation levels with colorise on this layer so its similar coloured only slightly lighter than your frame. Drop shadow.
Close Visibility of original frame and floral layer and open the copies. Merge the 2 layers and resize to 105%. adjust gaussian blur by 5 and apply Photoeffex - Scanlines, settings below. Adjust opacity to 60%. Re open all layers.
Paste element 32 flowers re sized 40%. Apply mura's copies with same settings as before. Once encircled re size layer 90% and drop shadow twice.
Paste your tube and position centrally. Use eraser on low opacity to neaten around the bottom. Don't worry too much about this as elements will disguise it. Duplicate your tube, drop shadow original. Apply gaussian blur at 3 and change blend mode to soft light on the copy.
Paste desired elements from your kit and drop shadow to your liking... I used
Element 53 leaves. Re size 50%. Placed bottom left of frame. Duplicate and change blend mode to screen to lighten.
Element 55 Ribbon/key. Re size 50%. Bottom of frame above leaves.
Element 56 Glitter. Re size 30%, Right of frame. Duplicate and mirror to left.
Element 45 Butterfly. Re size 30%. Duplicated twice. Placed randomly on tag and shadow added.
Merge visible. Crop/re size and sharpen to your liking. Add name and relevant copyright and licence info. Save as Png. Thank you for trying this tutorial I hope you are pleased with your results. Sal :)
