A gorgeous FTU kit by Tasha's Playground called Check your ChiChis which you can download HERE.

This kit is part of a collab, they are all gorgeous kits.

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright, KG One Thing for the name and Brushtip for the word-art.

Mask of choice - mine is from Gems Taggin' Scraps which you can find HERE.
I used mask number 153.

Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

Let's get started!

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

Open up frame 4 from the kit, copy and paste it as a new layer.

Take your magic wand and click inside the frame then open up paper 5 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete DO NOT deselect yet open up paper 3 from the kit and do the same steps you just did then you can deselect. Change the blend mode of the second paper to Luminance L.

Open up your tube copy and paste it as a new layer, if your tube is like mine and not a full length tube what I did was arranged the tube to my liking then duplicated it moved that one below the frame. Then took my eraser tool and erased what showed over the frame so that it looks like shes IN the frame coming out. Then duplicate that layer change the blend mode to soft light and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3 and lower the opacity to about 60. Repeat this step for the duplicated layer below the frame. Then add a drop shadow to the very bottom tube layer I used H 1 , V 1 , Opacity 60, Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Now we can decorate a bit!

I used the hope and faith flairs and placed them on the frame where I thought they looked best of course re-sizing them so they fit nicely. I did the same with the flower 2 element then duplicated, mirrored and flipped it.

Open up paper 1 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it so its at the very bottom then apply your mask and merge group.

Now for the word-art I wrote out 'Fight like a girl' but you can of course use whatever words you'd like. I used the black for the color then went to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 then added a new layer and flood filled it with white, move this layer below the original text. Apply some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise-random and monochrome checked at 36% then apply the same drop shadow as earlier then click on the original text layer and merge down. Change the blend mode of this layer to hard light arrange it to where you'd like.

Now in your font and color of choice add your name then apply a gradient glow my settings are shown in the screen-shot below and add the same drop shadow as you did earlier.

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

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.
