Colors Of Change

You will need the following things for this tutorial.
Scrapkit By Lynn at Scrappers Emporium. If You can't get this scrapkit any kit with a frame will do. Just use My tutorial as a guide.
Thank You Lynn for allowing Me to use Your kit for My tutorials -hugs-.
Tube of Choice. I will be using the one that Lynn supplied in Her scrapkit.
I have supplied the mask and font I am using here.

Ok open Your tube and mask in psp and minimize both for now. Open up a frame from the kit Your using and hold down the shift key as You press D on Your keyboard to duplicate the frame and then close out the original. Choose a pretty paper from the kit You've chosen to use and go to edit copy. Layers new raster layer and with Your magic wand click on the canvas then edit paste into selection selections select none. Layers new mask layer from image and on the pull down choose the mask that I supplied source luminance invert checked. (If the mask doesn't turn out right You might have to uncheck the invert box. I use vista so it might be different than other systems and versions of psp). Delete the mask layer and right click on the layer palette and merge group. Drag this layer down below the frame layer.Add a new raster layer and flood fill it with white and place this on the bottom of Your layer palette. This is just so that You can see how Your mask and frame looks.

On Your frame go to image resize by 58 percent all layers unchecked..Move the frame into place. I just moved Mine up a little bit I then with My eraser tool erased from the mask layer any of the mask that was still inside My frame which would of been the mask's frame. Find another paper that's complimentary to Your frame and mask and copy this and with Your magic wand click inside the frame's layer and paste as a new layer. Selections invert and hit the delete key on Your keyboard. Selections select none. I had to use My raster deform tool to pull My fill out in the frame to cover any of the exposed pieces on the inside of the frame and then with My eraser tool I erased the pieces that were on the outside of the frame. Be sure to pull this layer down below the frame layer.

On the frame go to effects 3D effects drop shadow vertical and horizontal offset 2 opacity 50 blur 10.00 color black. Repeat this step with the vertical and horizontal on 0 leave the rest of the settings as they are. This next step is totally up to You. I kept My tube outside of the frame layer because I liked how she looked and she was a full tube. For You that want to add her inside the frame click inside the frame layer copy Your tube and paste as a new layer selections invert and delete the excess by pressing your delete key. Selections select none. Give the tube both of the same drop shadows.

Add all the elements from the kit Your using and remember to give each layer a drop shadow. With the font I supplied I put a light and heavy one inside of the same font. Choose which one You like and type out Your text . The size will vary if You have tags or not so this last part is up to You on however You want to do it. You can delete the white background before saving so that it will blend into any background and then save as png. Add Your copyright and Your all done.
