FTU A Fine Romance





It's been so long since I wrote a tutorial that I thought I'd ease myself back in gently and with it being Valentines day tomorrow I'd do something romantic and not to taxing.



A Fine Romance was written by Myself on 13th February 2014. It is my own idea and creation. Any similarity to any other tag or tutorial is co incidental.

Supplies Needed

Tube of choice I have used the beautiful artwork of VeryMany at VeryManyTubes

Gorgeous Ftu scrap kit is Cameo Heart by Shani at Wicked Princess Scraps

Please leave the designers a thank you when downloading freebies :)

Mask 423 by Vix at Vix Psp

Font used is Mr Lackboughs


Filters/Plug ins Used

Xero - Radiance and Porcelain

Toadies - Blast em

PhotoEffex - Scanlines



Lets get started. Open a new image 700 x 700.

From kit c/paste Frame 4 re sized to 70%. Using magic wand tool, click in centre to float the inner. Selections - Modify - Expand by 3.
C/paste paper 6 re sized to 80%. Invert the selection and hit delete.
Select none. Move paper layer below frame and apply filter Xero - Radiance (settings below)
Apply a d/shadow to frame.



Re float the paper layer and c/paste a close up of the tube you are using. When positioned to your liking
 De float - invert - delete. Select none.
On your tube layer apply Xero - Porcelain (default settings)
Duplicate layer and working on top copy apply PhotoEffex - Scanlines (default settings) and change blend mode to Screen.
Reduce opacity of bottom copy to 50.

From kit c/paste Flower Branch re sized to 60%. Position along the bottom of the frame.D/shadow. Duplicate layer re size to 80% and position copy along the top of Frame. 

C/paste your tube and position above and to the left side of the frame.D/shadow.

Continue to add desired elements working around tube and frame layers. D/shadow to your liking.
 I used...

Bow 2 - 40%. Position bottom right of tag behind Flower Branch. Duplicate and mirror copy to right.

Flower 10 - 50%. Bottom left of tag beneath all other layers.

Flower 2 - 40%. Position top left. behind your tube above Frame. Duplicate, mirror copy and position bottom right of Frame behind Ribbon.

Heart - 60% - Rotate right by 15. Bottom of tag behind tube layer.

Pearls - 25% Bottom of tag above tube layer.

Bling Circle - 40%. Top right behind Frame.

Mask Layer - C/paste paper 6 re sized to 85%. Load mask from disk - Fit to layer.
In layer palette-  delete mask - merge group. Re size layer again to 85%.

Duplicate mask layer. Working on bottom copy apply filter - Toadies - Blast Em.
Diffuse 20 - Transparency - 200


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.
