Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies & Filters :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of Caron Vinson which you must have a license to use. Please do not use her work without purchasing through CILM here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU Kit from Tootypup called Easter's Dawn which can be purchased here.

Mask of Choice .. I haved used WSL_Mask84 Weescotslass which can be downloaded here.

Font of Choice .. Levenim MT.

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, copy and paste into selection Paper 24. New mask layer from image, WSL_Mask84, invert mask data unchecked, and merge group. Resize 110%.

Copy and paste Beadheart 1 &  resize 70%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your heart frame, selections modify/expand 4. Copy and paste Paper 23 below your frame layer, resize 65%, selections invert and hit delete. Do not deselect.

Copy and paste below your frame your tube. Layer duplicate and drag this layer above your frame. On the tube layer below you frame, hit delete. Select none. Select the tube layer above your frame and erase the bottom portion of the tube so it appears to be coming out of your frame. Select none.

Drop shadow your heart frame. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Make certain your heart frame layer is selected. Copy and paste Beadheart 4, resize 60% & drop shadow.

Select your top layer. Copy and paste Deconet 6, resize 65%, image flip and drop shadow. Position bottom right corner so it wraps along the bottom of your frame.

Copy and paste Fern 5, resize 30% & drop shadow. Position bottom right hand corner.

Copy and paste Vine 2, resize 40%, rotate right 45 & drop shadow. Position on the right hand side. Layer duplicate, resize 75%.

Copy and paste Lilly 1, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position on the right side.

Copy and paste Snowflakes 4, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position on the left hand side a lil down.

Copy and paste Flower blooms 2, resize 50% & drop shadow. Position bottom centre.

Copy and paste Branch 2, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position bottom a lil to the right of centre.

Copy and paste the larger Rabbit, resize 40% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner. Layer duplicate, resize 65% & mirror. Position next to your other rabbit.

Copy and paste Dove 4, resize 25% & drop shadow. Position top left hand corner.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I used 500x500).

Add copyright and your name. I have used Levenim MT Size 48 color #877047 & then added the following gradient glow and then drop shadow.

Save and you are done.
