I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. You can purchase the art HERE.
This is a PTU kit called California Girls from Cora’s Creations (Pimp'd Designz). Visit her blog for links to her store HERE.
I used Template 327 by Missy at Divine Intentionz. You can get it HERE.
The mask is WSL_Mask192, by Wee Scot Lass. You can get it HERE.
Font used is Carpenter.


Let’s Begin!


Open the tag template, and resize the canvas from the center to 800x800 by going to
Image>Canvas Size.
Delete the credit layers, the wordart layer, hearts layer, and dotted lines.

Open paper pp06 from the kit.
Copy your paper and go to the template.
On your layer named frame background 1, go to Selections>Select All, Selections>Float, Selections>Defloat.
Paste your paper by going to Edit>Paste As New Layer.
Then go to Selections>Invert and press the Delete button on your keyboard to delete the extra paper.Selections>Select None
Be sure to delete the original layer of the template.

Follow the procedure for the following papers and their layer:

Paper pp06 to frame background 2
Paper pp08 to circle 1
Paper pp12 to circle 2
Paper pp01 to circle 03
Paper pp10 to raster 1 (black rectangle)

On layers named frame1 and frame2, add noise.
Go to Adjust>Add/Remove Noise>Add Noise
Select Uniform and Monochrome, and set the noise to 75%.

Copy and Paste your close-up tube (if you have one) above the top circle.
I’ve mirrored the tube by going to Image>Mirror.
Once you have it where you like it, select the circle layer.
Go to Selections>Select All, Selections>Float, Selections>Defloat.
Select the tube layer and go to Selections>Invert.
Hit the Delete key on the keyboard.
Selections>Select None
Image>Duplicate the tube.
On the bottom tube change the Layer Properties to Luminance by going to
Layers>Properties and change the blend mode to Luminance (Legacy).
On the top tube layer change the Layer Properties to Soft Light.
