Scrapkit of choice

Open a new image 600 x 600 and flood fill with a colour of your choice I used colour (a7d5ea) then layer – load / save mask – from disk and look for WSL_Mask 116 with these settings, Fit to Layer, Hide all Mask, Source Luminance all checked and invert unchecked click ok then I used my raster deform tool to shrink the mask a bit Merge and Merge Group.

Copy & Paste Frame 1 from my Blue Scrap Kit and click inside the frame with your magic wand and Selections – Modify and Expand by 3, copy and paste Paper 2 and Selections – Invert and hit the delete button on your keyboard now in your layer palette drop the paper layer below the frame layer, click on the frame layer and add a drop shadow of 5, 5, 50, 5.

Click inside your frame again and Selections – Modify and Expand by 3 now copy and paste your tube, Image - mirror and when you are satisfied with the placement then Selections – Invert and hit delete on your keyboard, drop the opacity to 60% in your layer palette and Effects – Plug in and Xero – porcelain on default settings and ok.

Click on your Group layer in your layer palette and copy and paste the glitter doodle place it near the top and duplicate it and Image mirror in your layer palette click on the top layer of your glitter doodle the duplicated one and right click and merge down
