Click on image to see larger version

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Zindy Nielsen PFU tubes
You have to be a registered member of her site to
purchase her PFU tubes. Zindy does have FTU tubes:
Scrap kt called "Nothing" from Fantasy Dreams Designzs
Font of choice
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy 4000-Glass as well as Gradient Glow (optional)
FM File Tool Filter-Blend Emboss (optional)

# When you resize any of the elements or your tubes, it's always a good
idea to Sharpen them. This give them a more definate outline, takes away
that blurry look. I also use the FM Tile Tool-Blend Emboss to enhance the
images #

A new white canvas 700x700

We will crop & resize at the end.

Copy & paste one of the Elements 21-22-23 that will match your tube as
a new layer. Resize 145% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.Sharpen.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer - move down slightly. On the Heart layer,
Select All-Float-Defloat - make your tube layer active - Selections-Invert, Eraser
Tool, erase any of your tube that is protruding below the Heart.

Give your tube & Heart layers this drop shadow

Copy & paste one of the Ivy Leaf Elements as a new layer. Resize 80% Bicubic-all
layers unchecked. Sharpen. Duplicate-Mirror - sharpen the duplicated image. Merge Down
those 2 layers. Give drop shadow.

Copy & paste one of the Lily Elements as a new layer. Once again, resize 80% Bicubic-
all layers unchecked - Sharpen - drop shadow. Move Lily layer below the Ivy Leaf layer.

Copy & paste one of the Flower Elements as a new layer. Resize the 80% as before. Sharpen,
drop shadow. Move over onto the Ivy leaves (see mine for example) Duplicate-Mirroe-Sharpen.

Copy & paste one of the Bow Elements as anew layer - resize as before - Sharpen - drop shadow.
Move the Bow down over the Ivy Leaves.

Copy & paste Element 48 as a new layer. Image-Flip-Mirror - move over to top left side of your image.
Duplicate - Mirror. Merge Down. Duplicate - Flip. Merge Down these 2 layers. Now got to Arrange-
\Send to Bottom. The Doodles should now be under all other layers.

Cross out eyes on bottom white layer - Merge Visible all other layers. Resize 85% Bicubic-all layers
unchecked. Sharpen. Duplicate & on the original layer - Adjust-Blur-Gaussian Blur 25.
Effects-Texture Effects-Weave with these settings

Repeat the Texture Effect-Weave once more. Have the top a light colour from your tube &
the Gap Fill a dark colour from your tube.

Add your name & correct copyright. Crop Tool-crop excess white background. I resized mine 80% Bicubic-
all layers CHECKED. Cross out the eyes once more on bottom white layer, Merge Visible all other layers.
Copy & paste as a new image on your work space. Save as a *Png.
You shouldn't have the white background by doing this.
