**CT PTU TUTORIAL - Spring Brings Me Joy**

*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 Ninaste.
You must purchase a license to be able to use their work.
You may do that at BeeHive Studio store.
Kit of choice. I'm using matching kit 'Veronica's Garden'
by Tiny Turtle Designs. You can find it HERE.
Template of choice - 553mpm
Mask of choice - WSL_Mask15
Font of choice - Windsong

Let's get started...
Open template. Hide or delte Restart 1 layer. Select layers 1 to 13,
then hit CTRL+T and Flip Horizontal. Go down to the layer 1 and click
on it. Then from the kit past Paper #98, right click on the paper layer
and Create Clipping Mask. Use the same paper for layer 2. For the layers
3 and 4 add Color Overlay in black. Use Paper #85 to Create Clipping
Mask for layers 5 and 6. For next two layers 7 and 8 CC mask with Paper
#103. Now past Element #11, resize it to be really big, should be behind
temp centar circle. Add Drop Shadow with Opacity on 40%. On it place
Element #21, again resize to be big and shadow. Click on the layer 9 and
from the kit past Paper #11 for CC mask. For layer 10 add Color Overlay
in black. Use Paper #89 for layer 11 and Paper #98 for layer 12. Now 
add ful size tube and Create Clipping Mask, set Blend Mode to Overlay.
For the layer 13 use Paper #4 for CC mask. Now add Element #10 and
place it in the circle. Cover blue flower on that element use Elements
#68 and #15. Then select all of those layers, Convert to Smart Object
and then Drop Shadow 40%. Now create new layer and using soft brush
(the 1st one from the list if u'r using the same PS version as I do)
create grass at the canvas bottom. Use different shares of color green
to get more realistic effect. Then from the kit past Element #52,
rotate a little and place at the bottom right with shadow on 40%. Make
a copy of it and place at the circle bottom. From the circle bootm
left side place few Elements #81 and #37 all the way to the blueish
flowers we placed few minutes ago. If needed use Eraser Tool on them
and ddd shadow on all. At the bottom right place Element #14, shadow.
Left from it add Element #114, shadow. On them past Elemenst #75 and
#56 with shadow on both. On the canvas left side place 2 copies of
Element #14 and between them add Element #52, shadow on all 40%. Now
past full size tube, Flip Horizontal and place at the left side.
Drop Shadow with Opacity on 60% and Angle on -4. On it add Elements
#75, #12, #30 and #56 with shadow on all. Then go back and click on
the layer under the tube. Create new layer. Use soft brush, color
black and create shadow under the tube and elements that are on the
tube. For the layer 14 add Color Overlay - soft purple and Outer
Glow - Opacity 100%, Size 3. And for the layer 15 add the same Outer
Glow and Gradian Overlay with soft colors like you see on the tag.

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 #79.
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
