Queen of Hearts






In this tutorial I used the art of
Suzanne Woolcott.
Sadly, Suzanne no longer offers her art for sale as tubes but
please check out her site
where you will find links to where you can buy other

I used a really pretty freebie mini kit “Sweet as Honey” by

You will also need a mask, I used mask 141 by

Font of choice.



Please check out my “About my tutorials” page before you start if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Copy RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini_Paper (4), make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.  I toned the colour of the paper down a little to better suit the tube.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (5) as a new layer, resize 25% and move down.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (26) as a new layer (it’s very large, you wont see it) and resize 17%. With your freehand selection tool on point to point, draw a selection around the frame as my screenshot below.  Copy RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini_Paper (1), make a new layer the frame and paste the paper into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.




Paste your tube as new layer resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 90%.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (16) as a new layer, resize 15% and rotate 140 degrees to the left, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (18) as a new layer, resize 20% and rotate 20 degrees to the left place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (10) as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 22% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (27) as a new layer, resize 20% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (23) as a new layer.  Resize 15%, drag down below the last two elements and place in position, erase the branch and the string and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (19) as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (6) as a new layer, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (8) as a new layer, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste RR_SweetAsHoney_Mini (13) as a new layer, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
