I'm Your Venus Tutorial

This is a Scrap Kit free tutorial
There will be a fair few screen shots with this tutorial

You will need:

My supplies - DoodleFlower Brush
A tube - I used one of Ismael Rac's lovely lady tubes.
You need to be a registered member of his site
to purchase his tubes, but any tube will do.
Mask 12 from BabesDesignz
Wordart from WeeScotsLass - I'm Your Venus
Scroll down the page a little to see the Wordart I used & the
link to it.
Template 197 from Designs By Ali
Font I used is called 'Williamette'
Plugin Filters-Eyecandy4000 - Bevel Boss & Gradient Glow

Open up Template 197 - click Shift D to copy it. Delete the original template.
Make the very bottom layer active - go to Image-Canvas Size with these settings

The image seems large but we will resize it at the end.
Flood fill that layer with white so we can see what we are doing.

Make Raster 4 layer on the template active - Select All-Float-Defloat - new Raster layer
Flood Fill with a nice gradient with colours from your tube with these settings

Keep it selected - go to Effects-Plugins-Eyecandy4000-Bevel Boss with these settings

Make bottom layer (white) active - new raster layer - flood fill with your gradient. Open up Mask 12 & minimize it.
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group - resize the mask layer 85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. I then gave my mask layer a Texture Effect.
That is up to you.

Copy & paste my DoodleFlower Brush as a new layer just above the mask layer - resize the DoodleFlow 110% Bicubic-
all layers unchecked. Select All-Float-Defloat - new raster layer, flood fill with dark colour from your tube.
Give the coloured DoodleFlower the same Eyecandy4000-Bevel Boss effect as before. Selections-None. Same Eyecandy4000-

Your template should resemble this

Now we can add your tube. Make the very top layer of your template active - copy & paste the tube as a new layer.
Carefully erase any of the tube that may be protruding below the circle of the template. Give your tube this drop shadow

Open up the Wordart - copy the wording layer you want & paste it as a new layer, moving to where it will look nice.
Select All-Float-Defloat - new Raster layer, flood fill with the dark colour from your tube. Selections-None.
Give the same Eyecandy4000 Bevel Boss effect & Gradient Glow as before.

Add your name & correct copyright. When you have done all that - Crop Tool-crop excess white background. Cross out eyes
on bottom layer (white) MERGE VISIBLE all other layers. Click Copy on top bar & paste as a New Image on your workspace.
You image should now have a transparent background. Resize about 85% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png
