Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits and layer 5, resize template by 575x565 make sure all layers are checked then Image Canvas size 625x600 then add a new layer and send to the botton and floodfill your background layer with white, we can crop later i just like enough room to work.
Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer, open paper 10 c/p into selection/deselect then delete add a fat white gradient glow, width 3.00 then template layer.
Rectangles : merge both together select all/float/defloat choose a color from your kit add new layer floodfill then apply Tramages-Pool Shadow default settings deselect then delete template layer.
Frame background : select all/float/defloat open paper 5 c/p resize by 85% and arrnage we just want the color part of the paper no any of the design, when your happy invert/delete, invert again and open your tube, position and resize if needed invert again then delete/deselect, now duplicate gussian blur 5.00 change the blend mode to screen and change the blend mode on the original tube layer to Lumiance(L), delete template layer.
Frame : Add a dropshadow
Now Time To Add The Elements
I Used the following with a D/S unless otherwise stated:
Bow 5 : 70%
Butterfly 3 : 30% the free rotate left 25
Feather 2 : 30% arrange behind your frame background layer , duplicate and arrange slightly offset.
Lantern 3 : 70% move behing the butterfly and erase the string that is above the butterfly.
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements and template layers.
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize if needed.
Add new layer floodfill with a color to match your tag i chose a dark purple apply mask/merge group apply Xenofex2-Constellation I used Small Stars Setting play around with the settings and find one you like best.,
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
