Anthophila




In this tutorial I am using the amazing art of Tin.
You need a license to use Tin’s art,
you can get one here.

I am using  very pretty scrapkit called “Blush” by
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Chassity.

You will also need a mask, I used Gems mask 22, here.

Font used is Anthem, a free font, here.



Remember of course to sharpen your elements after resizing/rotating to take away the blurriness it causes (adjust – sharpness – unsharp mask, radius and clipping 5, strength 30).

Drop shadow used unless otherwise stated is vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open PDS_B-paper5 and copy. Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, de-select and apply the mask. Resize 90%.

Open PDS_B-frame1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, duplicate and close off the duplicate while we work on the original layer.

Rotate the original frame ten degrees to the left. Select the interior with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10. Open PDS_B-paper10, paste as a new layer and drag down below the frame layer. Resize 60%, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess. Apply the drop shadow to the frame layer and merge it down onto the paper layer.

Open up the duplicate frame layer and do the same thing - select the interior and expand the selection, paste the paper as a new layer, drag it down below the frame layer, and hit delete to remove the excess. This time do not de-select.

Open your tube, mirror it and paste as a new layer, resize as required, position it inside the frame and hit delete to remove the excess, apply the drop shadow and change the blend mode to “soft light”.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open PDS_B-print and paste as a new layer. Resize 75%, drag down below both frame layers and place in position. Apply a drop shadow but changing the vertical and horizontal to 1, opacity to 30 and blur to 3.

Open your tube again, paste it as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize if needed and place in position, apply the main drop shadow.

Open PDS_B-flower2 and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 70% and rotate 15 degrees to the left. Place in position and apply the drop shadow. Erase the excess stalk at the bottom.

Open PDS_B-ribbon3, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow, erase parts so its wrapped around your tube. Draw a rectangular selection around the bottom spray on flower2, hit delete, paste it as a new layer, bring it over the ribbon and place it back into position.

Open PDS_B-flower4 and paste as a new layer. Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open PDS_B-scatter and paste as a new layer. Mirror, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open PDS_B-heart1 and paste as a new layer. Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Crop your tag and resize if required, add your copyright information and text. I put an inner bevel on the text with the settings below and then applied the drop shadow.
