Scrapkit- "Sweet Spring" by Tammy's Scraps available at Twilight Scraps here. This is a fun, bright kit that can be used year round with mulitple tube choices!!

Tube of choice- I'm using Pin Up Toons, available for purchase at CDO. You must have a license to use this work. Don't use it without one!

Template of choice- I'm using template 63 available at Amy & Leah's Gimptastic Tuts here. It's part of a pack of Easter templates. These ladies make amazing stuff, so be sure to look around!

Mask of choice- mask3 from Amy & Leah's Gimptastic Tuts. Told you they had a lot of good stuff :) Visit them here.

Plug Ins- Eye Candy 4000 Bevel Boss & Gradient Glow; Xero>Porcelain

Font of choice- I used Scriptina, a FTU here

Here we go :)

Open template. Shift+D to duplicate. close out original.
delete credits layer, and word art layers

Highlight square 2.
Selections>select all>float>defloat
resize paper16. c/p onto canvas

Delete original template layer

Repeat those steps with the remaining layers and papers of choice.

c/p close up of tube
hit delete on keyboard. deselect.
change blend mode to Luminance
lower opacity to around 60

I added a bevel boss to a few of the layers.
Reference my tag to see which ones.
I also added a fat, white gradient glow to all the layers
dropshadow each layer (0,0, 40, 10)

Add, resize, and dropshadow the following:
element 85
element 160- 80%
element 32- 20%

element 100- 75%
element 34- 40% then 80%, duplicate/reposition
element 15- duplicate/reposition
element 13- 30%, Image>mirror

Add tube of choice. Duplicate.
On duplicate layer:
Adjust>blur>gaussian blur 3
change blend mode to soft light
On original tube layer:
adjust to give your tube a soft glow
drop shadow bottom tube layer

Crop and resize if needed.

Merge, save, and enjoy!
