**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Mila the army girl**

*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 'Army Girl'
by Lily Rose Designs. You can find it HERE.
(kit is not available anymore)
Mask of choice. WSL_Mask3
Font of choice. Pussycat

Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Element #73, resize and place it in the center.
Drop Shadow, Opacity 50%. Then add few copies of Element #2 at
the bottom of canvas, no shadow. At the top right side place
Element #41, no shadow. Next to it add Element #14 with shadow
on 40%. At the center place 3 copies of Element #54 in vertical,
one under the other, shadow on all on 50%. At the top left side
place Element #3, shadow. Make 2 smaller copies and place one on
the left and other on the right side, you can rotate them a bit
so they don't look the same. At the center, where u placed 3 copies
of Element #54, now past Element #33 with shadow. On it, on the
left side add Element #20, shadow. Make a copy of it, Flip Horizontal
and place at the right side. On it past Element #11, shadow. Again,
make copy, Flip Horizontal and place on the opposite side. At the
bottom left side past Element #38, shadow on 50%. Next to it add
Element #22, no shadow. Top left side past Element #27, shadow.
Then on the right side add Element #72, Flip Horizontal and shadow.
On it past Element #65, no shadow. Then in there add Element #1.
Past Element #62 there on all that with shadow on 50%. Add another,
but bigger copy of Element #1 with shadow. In the bottom middle
place Element #19, no shadow. Now place tube with shadow on 75%.
Use filter or effect of choice on the tube. To create what I did,
fallow those steps. First make a copy of the tube. On the copy
close shadow and set Blend Mode to Overlay. Then use filter
'Gaussian Blur'. Click on the original tube layer now. Go to
Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and set 'Saturation' on -15
and 'Lightness' on +14. Then on Brightness/Contrast and set
'Brightness' on -36 and 'Contrast' on -2. Now we'r done with tube.
Then from the kit past 2 copies of Element #40 and place at the
bottom, to cover tube legs, no shadow. On the right rock place
Element #57, no shadow. On it place Element #65 and #16. On the
right side add Element #75 with shadow on 50%. Next to it place
Element #38, shadow. Then Element #18 with shadow. On all that,
at the bottom, past Element #66 with shadow. Then at the left side
place Element #26, 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 #10.
Set 'Color Overlay' with color pink and Opacity 25%.
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.
When you place it on the tag, make another copy of it.
On the bottom layer set 'Color Overlay' to
the same color pink, but with Opacity on 100%.

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.
