Click on image to see larger version

I created this tut in PSPX4 (14) but it can be done
with any version of PSP.  Not much to in
this tutorial but your imagination. You will need some knowledge
of PSP to do this tutorial

You will need:
A tube (preferably a sitting tube & a close up tube) - I used one of ©Verymany tubes.
You need to be a registered member of PicsForDesigns
to purchase her tubes, but any tube will do
Scrapkit called "May Flowers" from Sleek-n-Sassy Designz
Mask #88 from Designs By Vabs
Font I used is called 'AnkeCalligraph' from SimplyTheBest Fonts
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy 4000-Gradient Glow

Open up your tube & the mask. Minimse the mask.
New white canvas 750x700

Copy & paste a paper from scrapkit as a new layer.
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group. Copy & paste Frame 4 from scrapkit as a new layer. Recolour it to suit your tube.
Resize 80% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Adjust-Sharpen.
Magic Wand, click inside the Frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 8. Copy & paste your paper once more,
Selections-Invert, hit delete. Keep Inverted Selection - move paper layer under the frame layer. Make
Copy & paste your close up tube as a new layer. Position within the selection, when happy with position, hit delete.
Selections-None. While on the tube layer - Effects-Plugins-Xero-Porcelain with these settings

Add the same filter to the frame.
Copy & paste one of the Floral Lights elements (which ever one suits your tube) as a new layer. Resize 80%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Position the Floral Light to one side of the frame. Duplicare - resize the 80% again,
Image-Mirror, positioning the duplicated Floral Light over the 1st one. Move the duplicated Floral Light down
under the original Floral Light layer. Add the plugin filter-Xero-Porcelain to the Floral Lights.

Copy & paste the Birdhouse element from scrapkit as a new layer. Resize 80% as before. Position the Birdhouse over

the Floral Lights.
Copy & paste one of the Bows from scrapkit as a new layer - resize about 55% Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Adjust-
Sharpen. Position over the Birdhouse string

Copy & paste your sitting/squatting tube as a new layer - resize if needed. Position to the side of the frame.
I mirrored mine. Add the Xero-Porcelain filter to your tube.

Add your name & correct copyright. Add a nice GradientGlow to your name. When you have done that, cross out eyes

on bottom layer (white) Merge Visible all other layers. Click COPY & paste as a New Image on your workspace.
Your merged image should now have a transparent back ground. Resize to your liking - I resized mine 78% Bicubic-

Your tuts are always so easy to follow Kate. I like being able to click on your image and make it larger. I save it and paste it PSP and use it as a guide.
