**CT PTU TUTORIAL - The Finishing Touch**

*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 their work.
You may do that at VMT store.
Kit of choice. I'm using PTU kit 'The Finishing Touch'
by Dees'Sign Depot. You can find it HERE.
(this kit is bonus freebie with 6$ purchase)
Mask of choice - WSL_Mask262
Font of choice - Qwigley

Let's get started...
Open new canvas 600x600.
From the kit past Frame_3b, resize and place it from the center little
more up and left. Drop Shadow, Opacity 40%. Click on the 'backgroun'
layer. Now past Spray_3, resize to be around the frame and shadow on 30%.
On it place Element_32 with shadow on 40%. Now add Paper_8 and use
Eraser Tool to remove extras, paper should be visible only inside frame.
Take full size tube and place it on the paper, right click on the
tube layer and Create Clipping Mask. Make a copy of the tube. For the
original tube layer set Opacity on 50%. Click on Adjustments>Brightness/
Contrast and set Brightness on +25 and Contrast on +21. For the tube
copy layer set Blend Mode on Saturation and add filter Gaussian Blur
on 9,0 pixels. Click on the frame layer. From the kit past Element_16,
resize and place inside of gold circle, no shadow. On the frame left
side past Element_44, rotate a little and shadow on 40%. Next to it
place Element_12, shadow. On the gold circle right side add Element_55
with shadow. On it place Element_21, shadow. Between the flower and
the bottle past Element_14, rotate and shadow. Under those place
Element_25, shadow. On it add Element_48 and Element_57 with shadow
on both. On the second one place Element_62, shadow on 40%. Next
to it add Element_48 with shadow. Now in there place Element_28a,
shadow. On it add Element_57 and Element_18 with shadow on both. Now
on the frame right side past Element_31, shadow. At the bottom half
of it place Element_12 and next to it Element_62 with shadow on both.
On those two add Element_48, shadow. Now add full size tube, Drop
Shadow with Opacity on 45%. At the tube bottom we'll add those
elements in the same order and with shadow on all - Elements: 57,
26, 59, 27, 4, 57 and 18. On the frame gold chain place 2 copies of
Element_8 with shadow on both. At the canvas bottom left side past
Wordart_1b, Drop Shadow on 40%.

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.
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
