Tube of Choice. The art I am using is ©Keith Garvey. In order to use the tube you must purchase it and have the appropriate license to use it from MPT.

I used a gorgeous kit called From the Heart by Stacey of Staceys Designs, which you can purchase HERE

Mask of choice, I used chas mask 3 which you can download HERE. Save it to your masks folder.

Filters - Xero Porcelain and Radiance, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow

Font of choice, I used Boring Showers.

Let's start!

Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white.

Copy and paste Frame. Using your selection tool, draw a rectangle within the pink frame. Copy and paste paper 13 below the frame layer. Re-size 50%. Selections, invert, delete. Copy and paste your tube, select none.

Effects Xero Porcelain, on the default setting but lower the blue channel to 0. Duplicate, and on the copy, adjust blur, gaussian blur 3. Change the blend mode to soft light. On the original tube layer, change the blend mode to Luminance Legacy & drop shadow.

Drop shadow the frame layer.

Copy and paste the hanging heart, image mirror, re-size 80%. Drop Shadow.

Copy and paste your pom poms, re-size 80%.

New raster layer above your background. Selections, select all, copy and paste paper 3 into selection, select none. Layers, load/save mask, load mask from disk. Find your chas 3 mask. Merge group.

Copy and paste your main tube. I used a radiance effect (Xero radiance), click the random button until you get what you like. 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!!
