Verymany - Loveable SET OF EXTRAS

New CT tag show off using new Pearl tube by Verymany.
Tube is already in the store and available HERE.
Tube is multilayered. I used gorgeous PTU scrap kit from Raspberry Road Designs
 Mr & Mrs collection , check her blog HERE for more info.

As well I have SET OF EXTRAS! Yey, bunch of them!
Rules are simple : Do NOT alter in any ways and do not add 
names on tags. All are free to use.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day.

**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Magical**

*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 Selina Fenech.
You must purchase a license to be able to use her work.
You may do that at CDO store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'IB-SabineRich-5-2'
by Chichi Designz. You can find it HERE.
Mask of choice. WSL_Mask3
Font of choice. Corinthia

Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Frame1 and place it at canvas center, little more
to the top. At the top of it place Branch. Select both layers and
Layer > New > Group from Layers. Double click on the group and Drop
Shadow, Opacity 40%. Go back to the 'Background' layer. Past Paper3
then and using Eraser Tool remove the extras. On it add tube with
flower. Right click on the tube layer and Create Clipping Mask. Make
a tube copy. For original tube layer add Filter > Paint Daubs and set
Opacity on 55%. For the copy tube layer add Filter > Gaussian Blur
and set Opacity on 70% with Blend Mode on Overlay. Now click on the
group. On the frame left side past Leaves and on it Gems, Drop Shadow
on both with Opacity 30%. Select both layers, make the copy, Flip
Horizontal and place on the right side. Now we will place elements at
the frame top. Since all but one elements we gonna place on the left
side first, then make a copy, Flip Horizontal and place on the right.
To shorter my writing time, I'll just say 'copy' and you'll know what
to do. First past Flower and place it top left frame corner, Drop
Shadow on 30% - copy. Under it, more to the center add Leaves, shadow -
copy. Those two leaves gonna mix in the center and there place Flowerball,
rotate 180 and remove that strap from it, add shadow. On the first flower
we added place again Leaves with shadow - copy. On it add 2 copies of
FlowerBranch, shadow - copy for both. At the frame bottom left corner
place Hearts, Drop Shadow 30% - copy. On both of the hearts add 1 small
copy of Splatter with shadow. Between those two place one more, but
bigger copy of Slpatter, shadow. Then past 2 copies of FlowerBranch,
one on left and other on the right side with shadow on both (if needed
use Eraser Tool to remove extras of those two). Now place the tube in
the canvas center with Drop Shadow on 55%. Past 2 copies of Flowerball
on the branches we placed before, shadow on 30% on both. Between those
two balls add one more FlowerBranch, 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. You can past the link here as comment or send them to me on al3x_v@ymail.com
