Mask Wsl 76 By Chelle   HERE

Filters Used
PhotoEffex - Scanlines

Open a new image 700 x 700. C/paste Mask element from kit centrally on your canvas.
Open Frame 1 and c/paste as a new layer above the mask. Re size frame to 80% and rotate 90 degrees.
Using magic wand tool, click in centre of frame to float. Selections - Modify - Expand by 2. C/paste paper of choice from kit ( I used paper 2 )  Invert the selection and hit delete. Select none. Move fill layer below frame and apply PhotoEffex - Scanlines on default setting. Drop shadow the frame and change it's blend mode to Difference.

C/paste your tube. Position above the frame and apply a drop shadow. If like me you are using a half tube, duplicate and place the copy behind the frame and neaten the top copy with eraser tool so that it fits nicely in the bottom edge of frame.

Go back to Mask element in layer palette and Selections - select all - float. C/paste your tube again. Position inside the bottom left of the selection. Invert and hit delete. Select none. Change blend mode of tube to Luminance and apply PhotoEffex - Scanlines, again with default settings. Now duplicate and mirror the copy to right side of Mask element. Use the eraser tool to remove tube that shows along bottom edge of Mask and frame.

C/paste Chain element. Re size to 60% and position bottom left of canvas behind the Mask element. Duplicate and mirror copy to bottom right. Merge the 2 layers, shadow and duplicate again. Move the duplicated chain layer to the top of canvas. 

C/paste Crime Tape and re size to 80%. Duplicate. Place 1 copy top left of frame behind tube layer and rotate to left by 2. The other copy place at bottom right of frame and rotate to the right by 6. D/shadow.

C/paste Badge 1. Re size 40% position bottom left of frame and rotate left by 10. D/shadow.

C/paste Cuffs 1. Re size 50% and rotate to the right by 10. Position top right of frame and d/shadow.

Mask Layer - C/paste paper of choice from kit ( I used paper 6 ) and move to bottom of layer palette. Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette delete mask and merge group. Re size layer  to 122% and apply Effects - Texture Effects - Mosaic Glass. Settings below.
