I used mask 0501 from

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal  5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 700 x 650 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask with the “Invert mask data” box checked and resize 95%.

Paste element 6, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 45% and place in position.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, make a new layer below it and paste paper 6 into it, deselect.

Paste element 1, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the main tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12, resize 30% and mirror, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 25% and mirror, pps.

Paste element 29, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12a, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste elements 21 and 20, resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the close up tube below element 4,  resize 90% and position in the frame, select the interior of the frame and expand it as before, invert the selection and hit delete on the tube.  Change the blend mode on the tube to “Hard Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.
