Tube of choice is by VeryMany at Pics For Design HERE
You must have a license to use their art

Mask 15 by Lynn at Tag With Lynn HERE

I used 2 FTU kits
Pink elements are from Candy Valentine by Vaybs HERE
Black elements are from Monochromatic HERE


Open a transparent image sized at 750 x 750

Open Frame from Monochromatic kit and Copy and Paste onto tag

With your Color Dropper choose a pink from the elements and black
In your Color Palette make these colors into a gradient

Click on the Frame and using your Magic Wand click on the inside of the Frame

Go up to Selections>Modify>Expand by 3>Add A New Raster Layer (in Layer Palette) then flood fill with pink and black gradient>Select None

Move this layer UNDER your frame in your LP

Clicking on the Frame again, take your Magic Wand and again click on the inside>Selections>Modify>Expand by 3>Add A New Raster Layer in LP

Copy your Poser close up and Paste as a New Image onto your tag

With the marching ants inside your frame, guide your tube above the ants and position the close up as you wish - look at my tag for reference - what's inside your ants is what will be showing in your frame

Go to LP, right click on the tube layer and choose Promote Selection To Layer

Carefully move your original close up away from the Frame and delete

Go up to Selections>Select None

Drag the Promoted Selection (close up of tube) UNDER the Frame layer and ABOVE the Gradient layer

Add drop shadow to the Frame

Making your close up active, go up to Layers>Properties>Luminance Legacy
This will make your close up sheer so that the gradient shows through

Now go to Effects>Texture Effects>Blinds at settings of  width 3, opacity 32, color white

From the Pink Candy kit select a pink paper and Copy

In LP go all the way to the bottom transparent Raster layer and go up to Selections>Select All>Paste Into Selection>Select None

Apply the Mask>Merge Group - add drop shadow

Now position all your elements as you wish or as shown on my tag
I drag my layers all over until it looks right to me
**Add drop shadows as you go**

Add your copyright, name and save as a png image!

I use Eye Candy Impact Gradient Glow on my text
