Enchanted Sea





In this tutorial I used the tube Seashell from
You can purchase this beautiful tube from

I used the matching kit “Sea of Enchantment” from
This is a truly stunning kit and you can find it at

I used mask 0120 from
Sophisticated Simone at

Font is 





I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 55, blur 10.



Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Open the mask and mirror it.  Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 32 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 85%.

Paste element 101, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 117, resize 40% and mirror, drag below the castle, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 179 on the top, resize 55% and place in position.

Paste the tube, resize 28%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 107, resize 20% and mirror, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 106, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 116, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 151, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Pate element 109 on the top,  resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 143, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 99, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 50, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 61, resize 7% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 52, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 70, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 10% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 8% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 12%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Draw a selection around the right hand dolphin something like in my screenshot below, hit delete,  deselect, right click on your canvas and “Paste as a new layer”, drag the original part down below the tube and join the two pieces back up.  




Paste element 165 below the top dolphin layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  Open your eraser, change the size to 100 and the opacity to 10 and dab on this layer around the elements and the tube’s feet so they show through better.

Paste element 180, resize 25% and place in position.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.  Go back to the blue toadstools and again use your eraser to blend the top in so the wave is coming over it.

Paste the tube again just above the mask, mirror it and position so her face shows at the top above the castle.  Click on the mask layer, go to selections – select all, then float and defloat the mask, invert the selection, activate the tube and hit delete, deselect.  Erase the parts of the tube that show leaving just the face (you will need to put the opacity back to 100 on your eraser), recolour the tube #e2f8fc and lower the opacity to around 35.

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