**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version. This tutorial is my own creation. Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials). If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **
PTU Tube – “Fiona” by Ishika Chowdhury. This tube is available in 3 different colors all in one file at Mystical Scraps.
PTU Kit – “Aquamarine Butterfly” by Amy Marie. You can find all of Amy Marie’s beautiful kits for sale at her own store, Amy Marie’s Kits.
Mask – “Mask 06 – Fireball” by Aeval Amore. Available on my blog, Aeval’s Art.
DS – Drop Shadow
Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5
Prepare your mask using the FTU mask above and Paper 18. If you do not know how to combine the two, you can find a tutorial to do so here.
Open a new canvas (Ctrl +N) 700 x 700, transparent background. This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.
Add your mask to the canvas. Resize to about 75% or until you like the way it fits on the canvas. Position it so it is slightly off center to the left. Duplicate the layer and flip the duplicate layer horizontally (See the tutorial in the intro above if you don’t know how to do this) and drag to the right side of the canvas.
Add Element 88 to the canvas. Resize to fit the canvas. Position in the upper left corner. Duplicate layer, flip horizontally, and pull the duplicate to the right side of the canvas.
Add Element 23 to the canvas. Resize so it fits the width of the canvas nicely. Position toward the bottom of the canvas.
Add Element 28 to the canvas. Resize to fit the canvas and position in the lower right corner. Pull the layer below Element 23 layer. Duplicate the layer and drag over to the left side of the canvas. Duplicate the layer again, flip it horizontally and position to fill in the gap in the floor of leaves.
Add your tube to the canvas. Resize her so she fits on top of Element 23.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the beautiful elements from the kit. Resize the elements as you add them to fit the proportions of your tag. Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety. In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz. In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used.
Here are all the elements I used from the bottom layers.
