Okay let's get started

Open a new image 600x500 (we can resize later)
Open the Mask in PSP.

Open your tube and a paper of choice from the kit.
Open any extra embellishments and ribbons of choice if you would like to use them.

Layers, new raster layer flood fill with white.
Selections, select all.
Edit copy, edit paste your paper of choice into selection.
Layers, new mask layer from image

Source luminance checked, Invert mask data, checked, OK
Merge Group

At this point edit copy, edit paste your tube as new layer
Place it underneath the mask layer.
Resize to suit. And position where suitable.

Once in position use the pick tool and close in the sides and top and bottom of the mask layer to your liking.

Delete any parts of the tube that aren�t suitable,
look at my tag for reference.
Using your selection tool, draw out a rectangle slightly bigger then your tube.
Layers, new raster layer , OK.
Flood fill with a deeper colour from your tube.
Move this layer directly under your tube layer.
Add a drop shadow

Opacity 36
Blur 2.00
Then repeat the shadow, changing the

Horizontal 2

Edit copy, Edit paste your tube as a new layer again.
Place just above the white layer.
This time don�t resize keep it a little bigger then the original.
Colourize this layer and have it set to multiply with 75% opacity.
And position where suitable.

I then added a ribbon from the scrap kit to the top and bottom of the mesh.
Add the same drop shadow as above.
Edit dopy, edit paste the crossed ribbon and place to your likely. Add the butterfly.
