I used mask 2 from set 158 by
This is a lovely set of 4 pirate masks.

Font is




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



Open a new transparent canvas 759 by 759 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 15 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize 85%.

Paste element 185, resize 40% and position towards the top of the mask.

Paste element 100, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 90, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 170, resize 30%, drag below the boat, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2 on the top, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 26, resize 25% and mirror, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 165, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 114, resize 60%, mirror and place in position.

Paste element 87, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 47, resize 5%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 58, resize 30%, mirror and then rotate 40 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21, resize 20%, duplicate and mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 15, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  You will probably need to erase some off the bottom so it doesn’t show below the tube.

Paste element 30, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 40, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
