Through the Keyhole





In this tutorial I used the art of
This tube was one of Enys’ bonus tubes at
and is not currently available

I used a freebie kit “Alice in Wonderland” from

I used mask 3 from the set 25 from

Font is 




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, 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 (the last one with the chequered bottom) into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Paste element 25 and resize 70%.  Select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 9 into the selection.   Paste your tube as a new layer and, resizing as needed, position in the element, invert the selection and hit delete on the tube to remove the excess, deselect.   I used layer 3 on the tube resize 80%.  Apply the drop shadow to the element and the tube. 

Paste element 14, resize 70%, drag down to just above the mask, duplicate and mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 8, resize 70% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 on the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 35% and rotate 50 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26, resize 55% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Go back to element 8, that’s the first flower element and erase the cream flower that is behind the second flower element.   Paste element 7 as a new layer on top of element 8, position it so you can see the top flower, erase all the other flowers  and apply the drop shadow.

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