PTU Ho Ho Ho ( CT Tutorial )

I have some news. Lori at Scrap it  has asked me to become part of her CT. I'm a little nervous about it as I've never done it before but here is my first tutorial using 1 of her fab kits. 

Supplies Needed

Tube Of Choice. I have used the super artwork of  Elias Chatzoudis

From the kit c/paste Frame 1 (red) re size to 108%. Position in the centre of canvas.

C/paste Tree element re size to 110% and position in the centre of image. Duplicate re size copy to 0% and position to the left of original. Duplicate again and mirror copy to right. D/shadow all 3.

C/paste your tube and position toward the right of the canvas above Trees. Duplicate, working on top copy add a gaussian blur of 3 and change blend mode to soft light, opacity to 60. D shadow bottom copy.

Continue to add elements of choice from kit. working around tube and Frame layers. D/shadow to your liking. I used ....

Snowflake 1 - 40 %. Make 3 copies. Position at the top of each tree.

Lights - 85% Top of canvas above Tree, behind tube.

Holly - 60% Position top left behind Lights. Duplicate and mirror copy to right.

Santa - 90 %. left side of tag behind left side Tree.

Candy Cane - Mirror. Centre of tag behind tube.

Merge all layers. Crop/re size to your liking. I usually sharpen at this point rather than each separate element as I go along. Adjust - Sharpness - Unsharp Mask 5.0 - 30 -5.
Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence info.
Save as Png.
