You will need:

Tube - I used one of Caron Vinson tubes
You need to be a registered member of CILM to
purchase the tubes.
Scrap kit called "Morning Glory" from FantasyMoments Scraps

New white canvas 700x700

Copy & paste one of the Frames from scrap kit as a new layer.

90 right. Using your Mover Tool, move the frame to the middle of
your white canvas.

Magic Wand - click inside the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 4.
New raster layer - pick 2 colours from your tube - light for the
foreground & a darker colour for your background - Gradient with these settings

Flood Fill - move this layer below the frame layer. Keep selected - Effects,

I hid all the elements before I done this. Give your tube drop shadow as before.
Cross out eyes on bottom layer (white) - Merge Visible all other layers. Resize your
merged image 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Open up the eyes on bottom layer. On
