**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Cowgirl**

*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 kit 'Cotton Eyed Country'
by Kissing Kate. You can find it at TTD store.
Mask of choice. 
Font of choice. Rythm N Blacks

Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Element #58 and place at top, little more to the
left side, with Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%. Click the 'background' layer.
On the top right side past Element #63, shadow. On it add Element #3
with shadow. On the left side place Element #63 again with shadow.
On it past Element #61, shadow. Make a copy of it, Flip Horizontal and
place on the right side. On the left side add Element #57 with shadow.
Make a copy of it, Flip Horizontal and place on the right. In the window
whole past Element #59, resize it to fit and shadow. Past the full size
tube on it and Create Clipping Mask. Use Eraser Tool to remove tube
extras from element swirls. Use filter or effect of choice on the tube.
Now click on the first element layer. On it, to cover the bottom, past
Element #64, no shadow. Also in there place Element #53, shadow.
Next to it past Element #10 with shadow. On those two elements add
3 copies of Element #61, shadow on all. Then from the left side to the
right place 3 copies of Element #8. Select all 3 and Convert to
Smart Object, then Drop Shadow on 50%. On it add 2 copies of Element #3
on the left side with shadow. Then add 3 copies of Element #48, shadow.
Place 1 copy on the left side, and other two on the right/center. On
those two place 4 copies of Element #61, shadow. Next is 2 copies of
Element #57 with shadow. At the end place 2 copies of Element #3,
Drop Shadow on 40%. On the right side past Element #21, shadow and
Element #61 on it with shadow. On the left side past Element #38
with shadow. Then add Element #48 and #23 on it, shadow on both.
Now add Element #54, Flip Horizontal and place on the right side.
Place Element #45 on it, rotate a little to fit the horse. Select
both elements and Convert to Smart Object, then Drop Shadow. Take
the full size tube then, Flip Horizontal and place at the bottom.
Drop Shadow, Opacity 60% and Angle -156. Add 4 copies of Element #61
at the bottom with shadow. Between those past Element #3, #11 and
#47 with shadow on 40% and Angle -156. On those place Element #48,
rotate and shadow. Now go back to the 'background' layer. Using
Brush Tool create grass efect under the tube, also using different
tipes of color green. Mix it how you like or simply leave tag as
it already is. You can use grass element from any other kit
but from the same designer, Kissing Kate.

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 #9.
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.
