**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Beautiful Stella**

*This tutorial is written by me using Photoshop CS6 but any version will work.
Any similarity to any other tut is coincidental.*

Tube of choice. I'm using the artwork of Verymany.
You must purchase a license to be able to use her work.
You may do that at PFD store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'Nostalgia' by Tiny Turtle Designs.
You can find it at her STORE.
Font of choice.

Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Element #77, Rorate 90 CW and place at the center.
Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%. Click 'background' layer then. Place
Paper #34, resize it to fit the frame whole. Then place 3 close up
tubes in there. Play with the the way you like, using filters or
effects or anything you want. Use Eraser Tool to remove tube extras.
Place 3 copies of Element #75, behind the top frame. Drop Shadow on
all Opacity 40%, Angle 156. Made room between them, one should be
at left corner, other right corner and one in the middle.
Place another copy with Rotate 90 CW on the frame right side with
Shadow on 40%. Make a copy of that one, Flip Horizontal and place at
the left side with Shadow on 40%, Angle 30. At the top, where's
empty space, place 2 copies of Element #42, rotate and Shadow on 40%
Angle on -156. On them place 2 copies of Element #76, same shadow.
Make 2 more copies of Element #76, one on the left side with
Shadow on 40%, Angle 30 and one on the right with Shadow on 40%.
Then place Element #35 at the left corner with shadow on 40%, A 30.
Click the frame layer now. From the kit past Element #75 and place
it at the frame bottom left, next to the whole, Shadow 40 A 30.
Element #76 on the right side, shadow 40%. Canvas bottom right
corner place Element #42 with shadow 40%. On it place another copy
of Element #76. Place 6 more copies of Element #42 at the canvas
bottom, from right to left side, shadow on all. Add another copy
at the left frame side, next to the flower, and another one on the
right side on the flower. On the left side place Element #47 with
Shadow on 40%, A 30. Make a copy of it and place it on the right
side, Shadow 40%. On the frame bottom left corner place Element #74,
Shadow on 40%, A 30. On it place Element #9, shadow. Make a copy,
Flip Horizontal and place next to it. At the frame bottom center
place Element #75, shadow. Another copy of it, rotate and place on
the right frame side. On it add Element #74 with shadow and
Element #16 with shadow on 40%. Add another copy of Element #16
on the upper left frame corner, where's the frame whole with shadow.
At bottom left, more to the center place Element #40 with shadow.
Another cop of it move more to the right side. Then 2 more on the
frame left and right boarder. Place Element #26 at the frame top
right corner, shadow. Bottom left place Element #37, shadow.
Now place the tube, but move it to be more on the left side
and Drop Shadow, Opacity 60%. On her left boot, place Element #38
with shadow 40%, A 30. On it place Element #46, shadow 40%.
Then place Element #13, resize to be smaller and shadow.
Move slowly to her right boot and place Element #78, shadow.
Make a copy of it and place it at the end of her right boot.
On the ankle place Element #40, shadow. On it, left side, add
Element #50, shadow. In there place Element #9, shadow.
Use Eraser Tool and remove extras. Then on the boot, where's
empty space, place Element #75, shadow. Then again add Element #9
and use Eraser Tool. Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%.
Let my photo guide you.

Now let's add mask:
Open your mask as new image.
Mask layer will be called 'Background' and will be locked. 
Double click on same layer, press OK. Layer name will be 'Layer 0'.
Add a new layer above it and flood fill with color of choice,
or use a paper from kit . I use Paper #36.
Click on mask layer and hold CTRL+A to Select All, CTRL+C to Copy.
Click on the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode. 
CTRL+V to paste the mask. It should now be kinda red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode
and there should be shown selection on your canvas. 
Hit the Add Layer Mask.
On paper layer, right click and Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again and Rasterize Layer.
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer.
Resize it if needed.

Add proper copyright and your name on tag.

Hide or delete bottom 'Background' layer. And save your tag as .PNG file.
That's it! Thank you for reading. I would love to see any tags made with this tutorial.
