**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Stirring Magic**

*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 Tony Tzanoukakis.
You must purchase a license to be able to use her work.
You may do that at TONY's STORE.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU matching kit 'Stirring Magic'
by Crystals Creations. You can find it HERE.
(just a note, both tube and kit will be in the store soon)
Mask of choice. Vix_MaskHalloween0906
Font of choice. Radio Days NF

Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Element #26, resize a little to be smaller and
Drop Shadow, Opacity on 40%. Click 'background layer.
Past Paper #3, use Eraser Tool to remove extras. Then add tube.
Resize it to be bigger and and place it on the left side, inside
the frame. Again use Eraser Toolto remove tube extras. Make a copy
of tube. On the copy layer set Blend Mode to Screen and use Filter
Blur, Gaussian Blur. On original tube layer set Blend Mode to
Luminosity and Opacity to 59%. On there place Element #23, resize to
fite the frame whole. Add 'Storke' size 1 and collor lime green;
'Inner Shadow' 75%, color black; 'Outer Glow' Opacity 75%, Size 10
and collor lime green. Click on the frame layer then.
To cover the frame, place Element #13. Frame bottom left place
Element #14, no shadow. Next to it place Element #12, shadow 50%.
On those two past Element #5, shadow 50%. On it past Element #20,
with shadow 50%. Then place Element #24, shadow. And Element #30
in there, shadow. On the frame right side place Element #1, shadow.
Then place tube with shadow on 50%. My tag can guide you where to
place it. Then add Element #4 with shadow 50%.

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 #5.
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.
