Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using
a tube by Robin McQuay.
You can purchase her tubes at

Tube of choice
Scrap of choice.
I’m using one by PolkaDot Scraps
Called Into The Night
It is available at Pimp My Tags
with Scraps
EyeCandy 4000 Gradient Glow -Optional

Open a 600x600 new image.
Open your tube & scrap supplies as well.

Open a tree branch.
Paste on the new image as a new layer.
Duplicate two more times.

Arrange so that there are 3 branches
alongside one another.

On your main tube, resize 88%
Paste on top of the three branches.

Open a set of angel wings.
Resize the wings 70%
Paste at the bottom of your tube.

Open a key element.
Resize 80%
Paste along side the wings layer.

Open a ribbon of choice
Resize 50% Paste on the
tag with one end at the key top.

Open a flower button element.
Resize by 50% twice.
Paste in the center of the wings layers above the key

Open a feather element.
Rotate 90 left or right.
Paste under your main tube layer
& to side slightly.

You want to position it between the tube & branch layer.
To appear to be coming out from the angel wings
behind your tube.
Duplicate once & mirror.

Open falling leaves element.
Resize 80%
paste as a new layer to the left
& under your main tube.
You want the leaves to appear to be falling
on the side that your tube is facing.

Add a drop shadow to the leaves

Also add a drop shadow the main tube layer.

Open a butterfly element.
Resize 70% once & 80% once
Paste on the top part of the key.

Add wordart or saying of choice
to the tag on top layer. I did an EyeCandy 4000
gradient glow on each of the two words I did for saying.
Make sure you add a drop shadow as well.

Merge the layers visible.
Resize 88%
Add copyright info & name
Save as png.
