**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Autumn is here once again**

*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 VMT store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU matching kit 'Autumn Music'
by Bibi's Collection. You can find it HERE.
(kit is not available anymore)
Mask of choice. HERE
Font of choice. Hobo Std
Template of choice. HERE

Let's get started...
Open template. Remove or hide 'info' layers. Then scrol down to the
last layer. Double click on the 'dotted leaves' layers and add
Color Overlay - color brown. Click on the layer 'left orange strip'
and from the kit past Paper #10. Right click on the paper and
'Create Clipping Mask'. Do the same for the 'right orange strip' layer.
On the top left side place Element #34 with Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%.
Then click on layer 'left red square' and past Paper #1. Create
Clipping Mask from it. Do the same with layer 'right red square'.
Clik on the 'left green strip' layer. Past close up tube, Flip
Horizontal and Create Clipping Mask. Make a copy of a tube. On the
copy set Blind Mode to 'Screen'. On the original tube layer set
Opacity to 55%. Select both tubes layers and make a copy of them.
Then move them above 'right green strip'. Flip Horizontal and
Create clipping Mask. On it past Element #35 with shadow. Click layer
'left yellow strip' and past Paper #10, then Create Clipping Mask.
Do the same with the 'right yellow strip' layer. Then make a copy
of layer 'leaves recolor'. On the copy set Blind Mode to 'Overlay'.
Double click on the layer 'leaves overlay' and set Opacity on 40%.
On the left side place Element #22. Make a copy of it, Flip Horizontal
and place it on the right side. On the top left side place Element #71
with shadow. On it past Element #69, no shadow. Select both of them
and make a copy, place it little down on the same side. Make another
copy of both elements, Flip Horizontal and place at the top right side.
Now make a copy of those from the right side and place little down.
Then add 2 copies of Element #8, one on the left side and other on the
right, with shadow on both. Click on the layer 'yellow circle' and
from the kit past Paper #8, Create Clipping Mask. On the 'red circle'
layer past Paper #4 and Create Clipping Mask. Take close up tube
and pace in the circle left side, Create Clipping Mask. Use effect or
filter of choice on it. On the right circle side place Element #22
and Create Clipping Mask. Click 'word art circle yellow' layer.
From the kit past Element #53, with shadow and place it bottom right
side. On the circle right side past Element #76, no shadow. On it
add Element #60 with shadow. Then on it place Element #8, shadow.
Make a copy of it and place it on the left side. On it place
Element #11, rotate a little and shadow. Make a copy of it and place
on the right side. Now place full side tube in the middle of circle,
Flip Horizontal, shadow 75%. Use effect or filter on it, but different
the on the close up tube. To cover the tube legs use in this order:
Element #22
Element #36
Element #30 (x2)
Element #8 (x2) - shadow
Element #29 - shadow
Element #8 - smaller
Element #28 - shadow

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 #1.
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.
