Lilac Blossom Tutorial

Click on image to see larger version

You will need:

Tube - I used a tube from Caron Vinson. You need to be a
registered member of CILM to purchase her tubes, but any
tube will do.
Mask-363 from VixPSP-Masks
Scroll down the page till you get to Masks 346-365 to download.
My cluster I made from a scrap kit from FantasyMoments in my 4Shared
Font I used - LaPoints Road

Open up my cluster - click Shift D to copy it. Delete original cluster.
New Raster layer - flood fill with white - move this layer below the cluster layer.
IMAGE-CANVAS SIZE 700x700 - this will give us some room to work with. Delete the copyright

Make the cluster layer active - Freehand Selection Tool, draw around the cluster frame

New raster layer - flood fill with a gradient from 2 colours from your tube.

Move this layer below the cluster layer. I used a brush to pretty up that gradient layer.
That is your choice.
Make cluster layer active. Copy & paste your tube as a new layer, placing the tube where it will
look nice. Have it so the tube looks as though it is behind the flowers in the cluster frame. Give
your tube this drop shadow

Cross out the eyes on the bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers. Open the eyes up.
Have the white background layer active - new raster layer - flood fill it with a colour from your tube.
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group. Still on the Mask layer - go to IMAGE-3D EFFECTS-INNER BEVEL with these settings

Add your name & correct copyright. Cross out eyes on bottom layer once more - MERGE VISIBLE all
other layers. Click COPY on Blue Bar & Paste as a New Image on your workspace. Resize 80% Bicubic-all
layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png
