Surrender Tutorial

You will need:

A tube - I used one of Elias Chatzoudis tubes.
You will need to be a member of PSP Tubes Emporium
to purchase his tubes, but any tube will do.
Scrap kit called "Surrender" from FantasyMoments Scraps
My WorArt 'Surrender'
Font I used is called 'Billy Argel'
Mask #12 from WeeScotsLass
(You will see the download links on your right)

New white canvas 800x800

We will resize at the end.

Go to Selections-Select All - new raster layer, copy one of the papers
from the scrap ki (I used paper #15), Paste Into Selection. Select-None.
Open up & minimize the mask. New Mask Layer - From Image with these settings

Merge Group

Preset Shape Tool-Rectangle - width 20-Anti-alia ticked-Create as Vector, colour
doesn't matter, draw out rectangle that is just a bit smaller than your mask layer

When you are happy with your rectangle, convert to raster layer.Select All-Float-Defloat,
Copy & paste your paper as a new layer, Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Merge Down.
Magic Wand again, click inside your rectangle so you have marching ants all round inside it,
Selections-Modify-Expand 3. New raster layer. Choose a nice light colour from your tube as your foreground
colour, background null, Flood Fill with colour. Selections-None. Move this layer below your mask layer
Make our rectangle frame layer active, give this drop shadow

Copy & paste one of the bottom Ribbon elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize about 70% Bicubic-
all layers unchecked. You may need to use your Pick Tool to reduce the ribbon so it fits the rectangle frame.
Adjust-Sharpen. Move the ribbon down to bottom of frame. Give drop shadow as before.

Copy & paste one of the Flower Sprig elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 85% Bicubic-all layers
unchecked. Move the flowers below the ribbon layer & place them where they will look nice. Adjust-Sharpen.
Give drop shadow.

Copy & paste one of the Butterfly elements from scrap kit as a new layer. Resize 50% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.
Adjust-Sharpen, give drop shadow. Image-Free Rotate-Rotate 30 right. Move the butterfly across to the flower sprig.

Open up my WordArt, copy & paste as a new layer (you can colourize it to suit your tube). Place it where it will
look nice. Give drop shadow.
