Mask and font of choice
You'll need the plugin Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow and you can get that HERE


Install your plugin before beginning
Open a new transparent image, 600 x 600 and flood fill with white
We can resize later if you wish to do so
Open paper 17, resize to 600 x 600, copy, close and paste as new layer
I'l assume from this point I don't have to repeat copy, close and paste as new layer!
Load your mask and then merge group
Open frame 3, resize to 375, width and move up and to the left
Open paper 15 and paste as new layer below the frame layer
You need to size this down until it fits in the frame so the words get out show at the top left
Click your group layer to activate it
Open the tree, resize to about 240 width and move to the top left
I erased the bottom trunk of the tree
Open greenery 3, flip horizontal, resize to 245 width and move to the right side
Open greenery 2, resize to 180 width and move to the right side, overlapping the black leaves
Open flower 3, resize to 220 width and move to the top right
Activate your frame layer
Open the clock, resize to 265 width and move to the bottom left of the frame
Open the candles, resize to 265 width and move down in front of the clock
Open your Arthur Crowe tube and resize to 500 height
Flip horizontal and move to the right a bit - you want the words get out to be visible
Open chain 2, resize to 325 width and move to the bottom left
Duplicate your greenery 2 layer and then bring it to the top
Move down in front of the candles and part of the tube
I recolored the leaves with #700c10
Open whichever spider you like and move to the bottom left
Open the skull, resize to 150 width and move down and to the right, in front of the tube
Open the cat, resize to 340 width and move to the bottom right
Go through your layers and add drop shadows to your elements
I used 0, 3, 30, 6, black
Add the copyright info and license number for the Arthur Crowe tube
Convert to raster
Effects, plugins, Eye Candy 4000, Gradient Glow:
On the color tab choose white
On the basic tab, 7, 25, 100, draw box checked
Reduce the opacity of this layer to 70%
For my text I used Beurk, #700c10 and gave it the same gradient glow as the CR
Starting with the frame layer, merge down to and including the white background layer
Copy this merged layer and go to AS
