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 X1, 
tho' any version should work.

from Tasha's Playground.

kit on here blog here.

You can find more of her gorgeous artwork here.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Mask: I'm using a gorgeous mask from Dee. 
I used mask 'f' & you can find it in this pack, here.
* Make sure to leave some love for the masks. ;)

Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow

Font: Geeoh Hmk Bold

Drop shadows: 0 0 50 12, black for frames
-10 20 50 12, black for tube

0 0 50 10, black for diamonds

Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste paper5. 
Apply your mask & merge group.
I resized mine 110%.

Next, copy & paste frame3.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Selections- Modify- Expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste paper1.
Hit delete & select none.
Move this below your frame in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.

Now, copy & paste frame2 &
place it on top of frame one, centering it.
Drop shadow.

Next, add your tube.
Place her off to the right.
Apply Xero- Ultraviolet at these settings:

I added this drop shadow to my tube:
-10 20 50 12, black.

Now we'll add some elements.
For each one, I added a drop shadow to, 
unless specified otherwise.

ribbon- 60%. Rotate 30 left.
Place on the lower right.
Move below tube in layers palette.
Add the following drop shadow:
-5 10 50 10, black

flower2- 35%
Position on the lower-ish right.
Move below the ribbon in layers palette.
Duplicate. Place this one just to left of 
center bottom of the frames. 

leaf- 35%. Duplicate.
On the first one, Mirror it.
Then rotate it 15 left.
Place it with the top flower
& move below it in layers palette.
Flip the other one.
Then place that one below the other 
pink flower on the left.

Place in the top center of 
the frames like my example.
Move below tube in layers palette.

Rotate 10 left.
Move down slightly &

jewel flower- 30%.
Place on the left, just slightly 
above the feather. 
Move below the feather in layers palette.

ribbon2-75%. Rotate 17 right. 
Move to the lower left, over the feather.
Now with your lasso tool 
(at these settings: point to point- add (shift)

make a selection around the ribbon 
like my example (see arrows):

Hit delete & select none.
Add a drop shadow to your ribbon.

Place on the lower right.
Move below tube in layers palette.

Place on the right,
slightly over your tube.

Place on the lower right.

butterfly- Duplicate. Resize one 30%. 
Position on the right.

left on the feather.
I did change the dropshadow 
for this butterfly to 
10 10 50 10, black & repeated 
that drop shadow. ;)

diamond- 15%. Duplicate.
Place one 'inside' each of the pink flowers
like in my example.
Drop shadow used- 0 0 50 10, black

diamond2- 10%. Duplicate.
Place in the flowers like my example.
Same drop shadow as the other diamonds.

Add any other elements if you prefer.
Crop & resize to your own liking.

Now add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now add your name.  
Add a gradient glow at these settings: 
Then add your drop shadow to this layer,
using these settings:
-5 10 50 10, black.

Finally, merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. =)
