Supplies:
2 Images and 1 tube of choice from the same artist
*I am using the always stunning work of Zindy S.D. Nielsen. You MUST have a license to use this artwork*

Autumn Art PTU Scrapkit

*I used the letters from the included alpha to make the Autumn wordart on the bottom of the tag. I also opened a 400*400 transparent image. I used the leaves included with the kit and simply resized them and rotated them until I had something I liked. I then "copy merged" and pasted it on my tag, moving it below the frame and image layers but above the mask layer. I then duplicated it, mirrored it and flipped it so that it matched up on the other side. I also resized one of the ribbons and moved it below all the layers but above the mask layer*

5). Copy and paste your tube of choice
*I duplicated it and used Xero ~ Radiance on the duplicate and then changed the blend mode to Multiply (but that will depend on the tube you are using and your own personal preference)*
