Artwork by Anna Marine and she is a pay to use artist, you can currently find her here at Creative Design Outlet. Please make sure that you have the appropriate CILM or Creative Design Outlet artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube or image of choice
Scrap Kit: "Amour" by Addictive Pleasures and can be purchased here.
Plug In(s): Alien Skin Xenofex 2 - Constellation
Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, flood fill background with white.
Copy and paste ele58, resize as necessary. Add a new vector layer, rectangle and draw out to be just a little bigger than inside of frame, flood filling with paper 7, convert to raster layer. Using Constellation plug in, from top to bottom: 2, 50, 50, 4, 30, 100, 45, keep original image.
Copy and paste ele34, resize, duplicate, mirror.
Copy and paste ele61, resize, duplicate, mirror.
Copy and paste any other elements that you would like to use, resizing and rotating as you go.
Copy and paste the tube of your choice, duplicate, change blend mode to multiply, lower opacity to 70, add a gaussian blur of 5.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your text - (I floodfilled mine with black) To make it stand out, duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, expand by 2, flood fill with white.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
