Sweet Seduction- FTU

Supplies:
Kit- Sweet Seduction by Gimptastic Scraps. Visit her blog here to grab this stunning kit! 
Tube- This tube was created by Zindy Nielsen as an exclusive for Dreamscape Imaging when it was open. You can find more of Zindy's work here.  
Font- Respective Slanted or font of choice
Photoshop CS or program of choice

Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 800x800, transparent background.
Place frame 5 in center of canvas, and paper of choice (I used paper 3) behind it.
With your frame layer active, click inside of it using the Magic Wand Tool (W).
Select>Modify>Expand by 5px. Select>Inverse.
Make the paper layer active and hit delete. That should get rid of any excess paper around the frame. 
Center the Lace element behind the frame and paper, so it peeks around the edges. I used that instead of using a mask :)
Place the Flower Scatter above your frame layer, in the center. Resize if needed.
From bottom to top, place the following elements. 
Amy's kits are perfect for taggers, so not much resizing is needed :)
Mirror
bath tub
vase
pillow
gift 1
heart
sparkle
Now place your tube in the center, as the top layer.
Add drop shadows to tube and elements- not the sparkles though.
(To apply a drop shadow, double click the layer to bring up the Layer Styles box)
Using the Rectangle Marquee Tool (M), draw a selection around the entire tag, slightly smaller than the canvas. 
Image>Crop-this will get rid of any stray pixels/drop shadows. 
Image>Resize Image- size it down if needed.

Add copyright and license info.
Add name and any other text.
Merge, save, enjoy :)

Thank you for trying my tut! If you have any questions or would like to show me your results, feel free to email me (bananas_68@yahoo.com) or friend me on Facebook (link is on the left of blog)!

New kit & Cluster Frame :)

Hey all!! I have a brand new kit in stores :) Breathe Me is a softer kit with a touch of dark and sadness. This kit will compliment numerous tubes but was partly inspired by Dirk Richter's ballerina here and Zindy's DSI exclusive tube here. This tagger sized kit is shades of pinks, greys and soft black, and has 61 unique elements and 13 papers 700x700 to play with. I hope you enjoy!! I'd love to see anything you make with it- bananas_68@yahoo.com
You can find this kit at any of my stores.

And I made a FTU cluster frame with the kit. You may download it here or here :)
