Firefly Fae Tag

By © Purplechick Creations
Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental
and unintentional.
This tut uses PSPX2 but can be used with other versions.

Please do not share this or put my tuts on another website!!

* Scrapkit Firefly Fae from Aussie scraps. It's a payed kit and you can buy it here under aussie scraps
* Tube of choice, or use the tubes from the wonderful kit :-) I used tubes from Suzanne Woolcott, bought them at AMI but Suzanne soon opens her new shop.

1 Open a new image 600 by 600, I always use a big image so you have some room to move with your tubes etc, you can always crop later.
2 Floodfill this layer with white
3 Copy and paste floral frame from your kit as a new layer.
4 Resize with 80% all layers UNchecked.
5 click with your magic wand into the first frame.
6 Selections/Modify/Expand with 5
7 Open paper Fae BG6 from your scrapkit.
8 Edit/Copy
9 On your working image, Layers/New raster layer.
10 Edit/Paste into selection.
11 Selections/Select none
12 Layers/Arrange/Move down
13 Go back to your frame layer and click in the second frame with your magic wand, make sure you have the whole frame.
14 Repeat step 6 till 13 for this frame
15 Go back to your frame layer and click in the last frame

23 Selections/Invert

29 Close your bottom layer, click on any other layer, Layers/Merge visible.
30 Open your backgroundlayer.
31 Move your frame layer a bit to the top.
32 Edit, copy your tube and paste as a new layer on your canvas
33 Resize if neccesary
34 Depending on the tube you use mov it a bit to the side so you put her just a little bit over the frame.
35 Give her the same dropshadow.
36 Copy MPflower1 and paste it as a new layer on your image.

38 Put it on the bottom of your image just like this:

46 Open Fae-BG6 and resize it to 600 by 600.
47 Edit/Copy (close it down without saving!) and paste this as a new layer on your working canvas just above your white background.
48 Image/Resize by 85 %, all layers CHECKED
49 Add borders, symmetric checked 5 and use a color you have in the frame layer, it's a bit of a golden, brown color.
