What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using a gorgeous tube by Wendy Gerber. You can purchase this tube at her store HERE.
Be sure to check out all her other great stuff as well as other designers there!

A gorgeous kit by Wendy Gerber called Blue Jeans which you can get at her store HERE.

Mask of choice - mine is by Vix PSP HERE.
I used mask number 147 :) which is in the 10th May 2008 post
Make sure you leave some love when you download!

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Origin for the name.

Let's get started!

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.
I like my tags BIG LOL.

Open up the jean frame from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little so it fits nicely. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame hole then go to selections-modify and expand by 5 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used a foreground/background gradient. Now open up your tube mirror it then copy and paste it into the frame mine is a close up so if yours has one you can use that. Arrange it to your liking then go back up to selections-invert and hit delete.

Now take your pixel font and write out a word I used sexylicious then align it so its in the center of the canvas and convert it to raster layer. Then go to MuRa's Meister Copies and use these settings shown below. My screen-shot shows the color black but I used white you can use whatever color you'd like. Now once you get that done apply your mask again then merge group. Change the blend mode of this layer to Soft light.

Now copy and paste your main tube as a new layer re-size it a little if you need to then duplicate it change the blend mode of the duplicated layer to soft light and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 5 lower the opacity to 24. Add a drop shadow to the bottom layer I used H 2 V2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Open up element 55 from the kit it should be a pink flower copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely up in the corner of the frame where the bows are then duplicate it. Add the same drop shadow as you did earlier.

Open up element 24 from the kit it should be two cute little hearts copy and paste them as a new layer arrange them near the bottom left side of the frame.

Open up element 31 from the kit this is a pretty side banner element copy and paste it as a new layer and move it below the frame and sticking out the side a bit. Duplicate, mirror and flip it arrange the other side the same. We're going to do the same with element 8 and then add the same drop shadow to these layers ONLY as you did earlier.

Now open paper 5 copy and paste it as a new layer move it below everything and add your mask then merge group.

Now in a font and color of choice add your name now go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice then modify it again by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with the original color of the font arrange it to the bottom of the other font layers. Add your drop shadow to the bottom layer. You can add some noise to the middle layer if you like, its up to you.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!
