Butterfly Kisses Tutorial

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Caron Vinson's fairies.
You need to be a registered member of CILM & buy the tubes.
My ButterflyKisses Template
Font - I used Arial

Open up my ButterflyKisses template.
Make bottom layer of the template active, go to Image-
Canvas size - resize 700x700

Recolour the template to suit the colour of your tube

Click inside of the template making sure you have all the area
with marching ants - Selections-Modify-Expand 10

Copy & paste a nice paper from a scrap kit that will macth you tube.
Selections-Invert - hit delete. Selections-None.

Or you can flood fill that area with a nice gradient that suits your tube.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer - you may have to re-size your tube
to fit nicely within the template.

Duplicate your tube - move original down below template. Cross out eyes on top tube layer,
Eraser Tool, carefully erase parts of the tube that are protruding from template. Now,
uncross the eyes on top tube layer, make it active & erase again around the tube so it looks
as though it is sitting inside the template.

Make bottom layer of the tube active - give it this drop shadow

Give the template the same drop shadow
Add any elements to the image you like. I used a butterfly from my PSP Tube Tool & recoloured
it to match my tube.

Add your name & correct copyright
Crop Tool - crop to remove excess white background.
Then you need to resize once more the Resolution with these settings

Save as a *Png
