This tutorial was written by Jenny on 4-7-2010. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Ann Howard. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license through MyTagArt.
Please check her site for new licensing information.

New raster layer, send to bottom, flood fill white.

New raster layer, select with magic wand, flood fill with a complimentary color of choice, select none, apply mask.

The tube I'm using, like many of the tubes offered at MyTagArt, has extra layers. I highly recommend that you use a similar type of tube but if you are using a scrapkit that includes roses/flowers then you should be just fine :).

Select Raster2, recolor using the Change to Target Brush.

Select circle 1, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer, flood fill with a color of choice (I used the same color as I used on my mask).

Select rectangle 1, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste Paper of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original.

Select circle 3, repeat same step as above changing the paper.

Select frame background 1, selections, select all, float, defloat, new raster layer, flood fill with another color of choice, select none, hide original.

Copy & Paste doodle of choice as a new layer, place upward, resize if needed, duplicate, flip, mirror.

Select Black Circle, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste paper of choice as a new layer, selections, invert,delete, select none, hide original.

Copy & Paste a circle frame of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, add drop shadow, see my tag for placement, this layer should be below the new Big Flower layer.

Copy & Paste tube of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, do not add a drop shadow yet, if you want the head to stick out like mine does then you will need to use your selection tool to select that part of the tube, right click, promote selection to layer, move to top, select none, apply a subtle drop shadow to the original tube layer.

Copy & Paste rainbow of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, move above the tube layer and upward.

Select heart leaves, selections, select all, float, defloat, copy & paste another paper of choice as a new layer, resize if needed, it's best to use several different papers so that it layers the flower nicely, selections, invert, delete, select none, hide original.

Duplicate the frame layer only, resize by about 10% less, copy & paste another image of choice and follow the same steps above for the duplicate frame placing it in the upper right corner.

Copy & Paste bow of choice as a new layer, resize to your liking and place upon frame, if the bow is longer (like the one I'm using) you'll need to make sure to bring the promoted layer of the tube up above it as I did.

I adorned the bottom frame with a beautiful heart found in the scrapkit I'm using, you may use something similar or the same thing if you have this kit.

New Raster layer.

Use the Preset Ellipse tool and draw out a circle in the middle of your canvas, as you can see there's an opened up spot on the right side of the canvas, this is where we want to put the text first, mirror the preset shape, new raster layer, type out your text, convert to raster layer, hide preset layer, duplicate text, mirror, flip.

On each layer of the text, selections, select all, float, defloat, modify, expand 2, new raster layer, flood fill with color of choice, move below text, select none, add drop shadow.


Resize canvas if you'd like.

Add copyright info and any text you'd like. I did the same thing with my name as I did with the text on the sides except I used a different font (both are listed by name above in my supplies).

Now you're ready to save your creation.
