Only dreaming!






In this tutorial I used the fabulous tube “Budding Beauty” from
Barbara Jensen.
This tube is absolute free when you purchase the new pack 68 before
14th March.
You can get yours from

I used the kit “Antique Silver” by
I love black and white kits and this one is no exception!
You will find the kit also at

I used mask 2 from set 40 from

I used the front



I used a drop shadow of vertical 9, horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


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

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Paste element 13 and resize 55%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it,  paste paper 2 into the selection and deselect, apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.    Duplicate this merged layer and place both in position.

Paste element 14, resize 50%, rotate 20 degrees to the left and place in position.

Paste the tube (this is the main tube),  duplicate it and close off the duplicate for now.  Resize the original 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Open the duplicate, mirror it and drag it down below element 14.  Select the interior of element 14 with your magic wand, expand the selection as before, make a new below it and fill with black.  Drag the copy tube above this black layer, resize it 90% and position it in the element, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Change the blend mode on the tube to Luminance (Legacy) and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste element 21, resize 80%, drag right down to just above the mask and position so a little of the leaves show on the right, duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate and position on the left, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 20, drag up to just below the main tube, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 50% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 60% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23a and bring to the top, resize 60% and position on the left, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, position it on the right and apply the drop shadow to each.  You can erase any parts that show overlapping when you have your other elements in place.

Paste element 9, resize 80% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, mirror, resize 60% and rotate 50 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow then duplicate element 25, drag it to the top and do some erasing so the feather is laying inside the ribbon.

Paste element 13, resize 40% and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments. 

Paste element 11, mirror, drag below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
