Pretty as a Peacock






In this tutorial I used the layered tube “Angel Baby”
From the newest pack 86 from
You can purchase the tube at

I used a kit inspired by the tube 152-2 by Jasmine Becket-Griffith from
The kit can be purchased at

I used mask 63 from Simone of
and mask 89 from

Font is




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal  5, opacity 65, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 700 by 800 an fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 1 into the selection, apply Simone’s mask and resize it 95%.

Make another layer, paste paper 5 into the selection, deselect, apply the Moonbeams and Spiderwebs mask, resize it 80% and move it over to the left a little.

Paste element 26, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 3, resize 55% and place in position.   Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand,  expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and fill with #47392e. 

Open the close up tube, open the brown eye layer, set your foreground colour to #006e00 and recolour the eyes green using the Change to Target tool (if you do not know how to use this tool, check out my tutorial on recolouring on my Tips and Tricks page).  Paste the tube as a new layer, resize it 90%, position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Lower the opacity on the tube to around 60 and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

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

Paste element 8, resize 60%, drag below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 50%, drag below the trunk, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 30%, duplicate, drag the copy above the trunk, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 10, it should be above the trunk, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 20%, duplicate, mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 16, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15, resize 50% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25 on the top.  Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste element 2, resize 40%, drag down to just above the masks  and duplicate twice, mirror one copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 14 on the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 below the main tube, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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