PTU- Angels Are Around

*Click for bigger

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP
and was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed:
Scrapkit is My Angel Above from the very talented Tasha at Tasha's Playground
This is a PTU kit & is part of an exclusive collab at SATC.
Mask MC_Mask4 from Melissaz Creationz.
Tube of choice. I  am using the adorable artwork of Suzanne  Woolcott
named The Bluebirds Proposal.  
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.
Wordart of choice or the one I created for this tutorial,
 which you can snag here. There is a PSP & PSD version in the zip.;)
Filters: Graphics Plus- Weaver
Xero- Radiance
Xero- Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow (name only)
Font: Angelica

Let's do this! =)

Save your progress often.;)
Drop shadow used in this tutorial is 2 4 48 4.

Open up a new image, sized 650 X 650 px.

Copy & paste paper1 onto your canvas.
Apply the mask & merge group. Resize to 110%.

Next, copy & paste frame1. Resize 80%.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Modify- expand by 4. Invert. copy & paste paper 6. 
Resize 60%. Hit delete & select none.
Drag this layer below your frame, then duplicate. 
On the bottom paper, apply Graphics Plus- Weaver:
Then, on the top paper, set the blend to overlay at 80% opacity.

Now copy & paste your tube & drag it above your frame in the layers palette.
Depending on what tube you are using, you may have to resize.
Then, apply Xero- Radiance:
Then apply Xero- Porcelain. (These filters make the tube 'glow'):
Add a drop shadow to your tube.

Now let's add some elements.
For each element I resized, I sharpened & added a drop shadow.

Copy & paste greenery.
Drag this to just above your mask layer & resize 110%.
Duplicate it & pull them out a little on either side of the frame.
Erase any excess stems that you don't want. Drop shadow both.

Next add the flowerscatter above the greenery. 
Resize 65% & duplicate. On the duplicate, mirror & flip. 
Pull both out on either side of the frame.
Then recolour one of them blue. Drop shadow them both.

Next, add flower 3 above your frame in layers & resize it 40%.
Sharpen & add a drop shadow. 
Place it over the bow on the frame.

For the dragonfly, resize 27%. Then rotate 17 left.
Place to the top right & duplicate. Resize the 2nd one 80%.
Sharpen & drop shadow both.

Copy & paste hearts. Resize 45%.
Erase a bit of the excess string. Place to the right on the frame.
Sharpen & add your drop shadow.

Next, add the heart pillow, resized at 45%.
I placed mine to the bottom right in front of the log of my tube.
Sharpen & drop shadow.

I added the sparkles over my tube & erased the excess I didn't want.

Now, add the optional word art.
Recolour & add noise if you prefer.
Position it like my example & add a drop shadow.

Now, resize &/ or crop your tag as desired.
Then, add your name.
Add a small gradient glow set at 3:
Add your drop shadow.
Merge visible & save as a .PNG & you're done.
I hope you had fun trying this tutorial. 
I'd love to see your results. =)
