This tutorial was written by me on February 8th, 2014 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5 but should work in other versions.

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using the beautiful art of Barbara Jensen. You can purchase her tubes here

PTU Kisses Like Candy Collab by Freek’s Creations. You can purchase it here

Tag Template 1 by me. You can find it here

Mask 50 by Rosesblack. You can find it here

Font of choice. I am using Will & Grace.

——————–

Open your template & mask. Minimize your mask for now.

On the template, delete the credits layer.

Open Paper 7. Copy and paste as a new layer. Apply your mask, merge group. Move this layer just above the background layer. Duplicate your mask layer twice. Merge the mask layers together and delete the background layer.

Merge together the following layers:

Right Square & Left Square
Top Rec & Bottom Rec

Now to add your papers to the template layers:

Merged square layers – Paper 2
Merged rec layers – Paper9
Lg Rec layer – Paper 6
Med Rec layer – Paper 1
Rec Frame layer – Paper 3, add noise uniform, 50, monochrome checked
Dotted Lines layer – manual color correction. Set the source to #000000, the target to #872234

Now for the elements, which will be placed above the dotted lines layer:

Love Letters – place to your liking.
Candle – resize by 50%. Place to the bottom right.
Petals – place to the bottom.
Ribbon2 – place to the bottom
Tag – resize by 40%. Place to the top left corner of the frame.

Now let’s place your tube:

With your green paper layer highlighted, place your tube over paper. Duplicate your tube, flip horizontal and move this copy just below your frame layer, inside the frame.

On the green paper layer, select all, float, defloat. On the tube layer just above this layer, selections, invert and press delete. Deselect. Duplicate this tube layer, gaussian blur 3.00. Set the blend mode to Screen, opacity 65. On the original tube layer, set the blend mode to Luminance (L), opacity 55.

On the blue paper layer, select all, float, defloat. On the tube layer just above this layer, selections, invert and press delete. Deselect. Duplicate the tube, gaussian blur using the same settings. Set the blend mode to Screen, opacity 65. Set the opacity for the original layer to 55.

Add a copy of your tube jut below the flower box layer. Duplicate, gaussian blur with the same settings. Set the blend mode to Overlay, opacity 45.
