The Mask


Supplies:

1 tube of choice - I used the beautiful artwork of Sue Miller which can be purchased from Up Your Art.  You must have a license to use.

Font of choice - I used Maratre here

Mura's Meister - Copies

Becky Mask 9, Feather element, and Moon which I supply here
In no way are any of these elements to be used in anything but this tutorial - please read by TOU

If you're using the same tube as I did, resize 60%

Highlight your white background.
Make your Rectangle Tool active.
Create a rectangle approximately 270 x 370 pixels below your tube (Make the rectangle large enough to hold your tube - see my tag for reference).
Convert to a Raster layer.
Close your tube out for now.

Highlight the rectangle layer.  Rename Rec 1 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 2.

Highlight the dot layer.
Apply Mura's Meister - Copies:

Duplicate and move slightly once again.

You should now have a duplicate of your working canvas.

Move both the duplicates into position - see my tag for reference.

Use your Pick Tool and turn the stars this way and that and move both into position - see my tag for reference.
Give each a slight Inner Bevel:
