I used the beautiful art of Suzanne Woolcott

Lets begin!

1. Open a new canvas 600x500 and fill white.

2. Add a new raster layer, effects, Mura's Meister - Cloud, default settings, but change the colours to dark colours from your tube. Apply a round mask of choice. Delete the mask and answer yes to the question asked, ungroup layers. Effects, DSB Flux - Linear Transmission with the following settings

Slice size - 5
Offset - 2
Blend - 50
Horizontal checked

3. Add another raster layer and again, Mura's Meister - Clouds, same settings as before, but change the colours to a different colour from your tube. Apply the mask supplied to this layer, delete and answer yes to the question asked. Ungroup layers.

4. Copy and paste my template as a new layer. Copy and paste my screw, place in one corner of the template. Duplicate 3 times and move the others to the other corners.

5. Add any wording of choice now. 6. Copy and paste your tube, or tubes of choice as a new layer and add drop shadows of choice.

7. Copy and paste one of Melissa's bows as a new layer, resize and colourise to suit. See my tag above for placement.

8. Add your copyright information, watermark and name, save as a jpeg and your all done.
