Tube and close up of Choice. The art I am using is ©Camilla Drakenborg. In order to use the same tube you must purchase it have the appropriate license to use it from CILM
I used a gorgeous kit called Angelic, which you can purchase HERE
Filters - Xero Porcelain and Radiance, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow
Template - I used one that Aqua did in a challenge at Misfits, you can download it HERE
Font of choice, I used Adine Kirnberg.
Open your template. Delete the wordart and wordart glitter backing. Colourise all the purple layers to suit your tube.
On all the glitter frame layers, adjust, add/remove noise, add noise, uniform 82 and drop shadow.
On the top purple rectangle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste paper 3, selections, invert delete, select none. Delete the original layer.
On the lower purple rectangle selections, select all, float, defloat, copy and paste paper 12, selections, invert delete, select none. Delete the original layer.
On the purple rectange layer, selections, select all, float, defloat. New raster layer, copy and paste paper 8 into selection, select none. Delete the original layer.
Merge you upper right twinkle line and upper purple glitter line, image mirror.
Copy and paste your tube & position in the right corner of the big rectangle! Mine has a sharp top edge, so I used my selection tool to draw a square around the top of her head, see below.
Selections, modify, feather 25. Hit the delete key a couple of times to get a softer look, then select none. Effects, Xero Porcelain with the default settings, but change the blue channel to 0.
Still on your tube layer, duplicate it, on copy adjust blur, gaussian blur 3, change the blend mode to Screen. Drop shadow the original tube layer.
Go back to your big rectangle layer, select with your magic wand. Copy and paste your tube again and place in on the left side of your rectangle, selections invert, and delete on your tube layer. Lower the opacity to about 40.
You might need to move your sparkes a bit to get the best effect. When you've got them right, delete, select none. I erased a couple of the sparkles which were on her face.
Now it's time to add any elements you like from the kit.
I started with the splash, and pasted it above the background layer. Re-size 80%, duplicate & move one to top left, the other to bottom right corners.
Copy and paste the diamond sparkle, re-size 95%.
Copy and paste paper stars, rotate left 90. Re-size 80%
Copy and paste the paper moon, re-size 90%, drop shadow.
Add your name. I used gradient glow on mine choosing a colour from my tube.
Close your white background layer & crop merged opaque. Re-size tag to whatever you like, I usually use just under 600 x 600.
Now, add your artists credits and you are finished!!
