A tube of your choice. I am using the lovely artwork of Ronnie Barton, which can be purchased here:
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5, Nature, icicles, which can be found here:
Mask 43, Flowers 1, and butterflies forward facing, from mixture/embellishments, on my site, here:
Open a new image 600x500 and floodfill in white. Open your tube on desktop and choose an
area to take a pattern from it, with the selection tool. I chose
the cauldren from my tube. Copy and paste the small selection as a new image. In the material
palette, change the foreground to your pattern, background null. Go to the rectangle tool, width 22,
and draw a reasonable sized rectangle. Convert to raster layer, and go to effects, inner bevel, and use these
settings as below:
Rectangle again, this time width 30, and convert to raster layer. Go to effects,
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: Nature, and icicles. On the settings, choose Text.100pt. Just Ice.
On basic use the settings as below:
Drag this layer below the bevelled frame. Once more the rectangle tool, width 22, and
do another bevellled frame like the first. X out raster layer 1, and merge visible. Add a drop shadow
Add your tube as a new layer and centre in the frame, and drop shadow.
Choose a contrasting colour from your tube. I chose a pastel shade
#bdaade, for the frame background. With foreground null, click on raster layer 1
and draw another rectangle. Convert to raster layer. Make sure no edges
show around the frame.Drag this layer below the frames.
On the background layer, go to effects, texture effects and blinds. Choose another
contrasting colour, i used #bbd5ba. follow the settings:
X out raster layer 1, and merge visible. Un X. Still on raster layer 1, add
a new layer and floodfill in your pattern. Open Mask
43, and go to layers, new mask layer from image, in the source window click on
Mask 43, invert mask data and source luminance checked, and apply.
Merge group. I resized to 110%, and moved it slightly to
show more around the frame.
For the word art, use the same colour as you used in the background, the font used
is ChopinScript size 12, stroke 1. Convert to raster layer and add a drop shadow
Now for your name, use the same background colour in foreground, and the pattern
in background. The font used is Curlz MT, Size 36, stroke 1. Convert
to raster layer, and add the first drop shadow. Image, free rotate, 90 degrees
left, and place down the right hand side of the frame. Bring this layer to the top.
From my site i chose some flowers. Adjust, hue, and saturation, colorize with
these settings ... hue=186, saturation=64. Copy and paste as
a new layer. I erased the stem and a couple of bottom leaves. Use my tag
as reference. Position on the bottom left hand of the frame, and drop shadow.
I chose a pale green butterfly from my site, and resized to 30%. Copy and paste
as a new layer. Image, free rotate 45 degrees left. Place in the top
right hand corner and drop shadow. Duplicate and image, mirror, and place
in the bottom left hand corner. Now duplicate again, and colorize,
using the same settings we used earlier. Image, and mirror. Duplicate again, image
and mirror, and place the right hand butterflies at the start and end of your name.
Click on the mask layer and duplicate. Resize to 110%, and go to adjust, blur, and
Gaussian Blur. Change the radius to 18, and drag this layer below the original
From preset shapes, choose a flower shape, width 2, using your pattern as the
background, and your chosen color as the foreground, draw a reasonable
shaped flower. Now convert to raster layer, and inner bevel with the same settings
we used before. Place on the frame near the top right. Duplicate
the flower and resize to 80%, move this just underneath the larger flower.
Add your credits.
X out raster layer 1, and merge visible. Save this tag as a PNG file.
Thats it we are all finished. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
