Click the tag to preview at full size. This tutorial was written by Marta on February 12, 2009. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is coincidental. Do not copy and paste this tutorial elsewhere on the net. Absolutely NO Scripting and/or translating of this tutorial.

For this tutorial you will need:

Tube of choice
Font of choice (I used Burgues Script and Century Gothic)
Mask - Vix_Mask10 - You can download HERE
Xenofex2 - Constellation
ScrapKit *Moment In Time* by Annie of Annie's Design.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Gennadiy Koufay, you can find his licensed art at CILM.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste paper7 as a new layer. Open Vix_Mask10, Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image and find the mask in the drop down list. Delete mask layer, and merge group. Effects/Xenofex2/Constellation/Settings/Star Field/Keep original image.

Copy & paste frame1 as a new layer. Copy & paste bow14 as a new layer and move under the frame layer, you may have to mirror depending on the tube you use. Using your Magic Wand, click inside the frame. Selections/Modify/Expand by 3. Open a new raster layer and floodfill with #F8EDE6, keep selected. Selections/Invert and hit Delete on your bow layer. Selections/Select none. Add drop shadow to your frame and bow.

Copy & paste your tube, position to desired position. If you're using a black & white tube, Adjust/Hue and Saturation/Colorize/Set to H/161/S/40. Duplicate. Working on your original tube layer. Change your foreground to #F8EDE6 and your background to #6C78A4. Effects/Filters Unlimited2/Render/Cloud(fore-/background color)/Change Gamma to 161. Adjust/Blue/Gaussian Blur/Set to 5. Add drop shadow to the copied tube layer.

Add any additional bows, wordart, ribbons, flowers, candles, or elements of your choice.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your text (Effects/Xenofex2/Constellation/Set to Star Field/Keep original image), copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.

That's it.. all done!
