Written on the February 7, 2017 by Debbie Priest

This tutorial was written in PSP X but can be done in any version. This was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP. Any resemblance is purely coincidental.

My tutorials are only meant as a guide.

Supplies Needed:

Font of Choice.

FTU Fabulous Scrap Kit  "Valentine" by Designz By Shelly.
A Creative Chicks Exclusive. You can get it Here

Tube of your choice - I am using the Fabulous artwork of ©Fiodorova Maria. You need a license to use this tube, please do not use this tube without a proper license.

Mask: WSL_84 by Wee at Weescotslass Creations. You can get it Here

Plugins:  Xero Radiance

Drop Shadow throughout is 1, 1, 50, 4.00 Black.

On to the Tut!!

* Open up a New Image 700 x 700. You can resize later. Flood fill white.

* Copy and paste paper 6. Layers, load mask from disk. Apply WSL_84. Layers, merge group. Duplicate, merge down.

* Copy and paste Circle 3. Using your magic wand, click inside the both frames. Modify, expand by 15. Open up paper 4. Move to where you want it. Copy and paste as a new layer.  Drag this layer below your frame. Drop shadow frame.

* Copy and paste tube. Resize to your liking. Drop shadow. Adjust sharpness, sharpen.

* Copy and paste elements of choice. See my tag for placement. Resize to your liking. DS all. I used:

Element Sign
Element Gift Box
Element Dangling Bow
Element Cupcake
Element Love Barrel
Element Flower
Element Butterfly x 2. Mirror, resize, move (see tag)
Element Sparkle
                             Element Sparkle 2 x 2.                               

* Add any other elements you wish anywhere along the way.

* Close out the background and mask layers, merge visible. Keep closed. Rezize 96%.

* Effects, plugins, xero, radiance 164, 202, 54 and 201. Ok.

* Adjust sharpness, sharpen.

* Crop if desired.

* Resize all layers checked to 650 x 650 or desired size. I always resize before adding the copyright. It makes the copyright clearer.

* Add your name, copyright info.,  proper license # (if needed), and watermark.

* Merge visible and save as PNG file.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
