Thank you Eve for allowing me to translate your tutorial.

Filly has kindly given to me her permission to use her tubes for that tutorial.
Molte grazie Filly

You will need :
2 tubes of your choice
Plugins Filters Unlimited 2.0 – VM Natural – FM TileTools
Mask 20/20 here

Put the mask in your masks folder.

 
  1. In PSP open your tubes and duplicate them. Then apply the mask 20/20 to each


  2. Select 2 colours to match with your tubes and make a gradient : linear - angle 45° - repeats 3


  3. New transparent image 500x500 px ; Flood fill with your gradient. Name it "background1"


  4. Duplicate the layer and name it "background2"


  5. Go back to layer background1. Effects => plugins => Filters Unlimited 2.0 => Lens effects => vertical slice : 94.


  6. Effects => plugins => FM Tile tools => blend emboss


  7. Back to the layer background2. Resize to 80%. Do not tick all layers off.


  8. On the same layer : Effects => plugins => VM Natural => Cross weave with the following settings : 64 / 201 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0


  9. In the layer palette : opacity 30%. Effects => plugins => FM Tille Tools : Blend emboss. Effects => 3D effects => drop shadow : 0 / 0 / 100 / 30


  10. Duplicate Background2 and name it "Background3". Resize to 70 %


  11. Effects => plugins => Filters Unlimited 2.0 => Lens effects => refractor 2 : 32


  12. In the layer palette => opacity 50%. Effects => plugins => FM Tile Tools => blend emboss. Add a drop shadow – same settings as step 9.


  13. Move the layers Background2 and Background3 on your working image to your liking.


  14. Add your tubes and place them to your liking, working on their opacity,size and blendmode.


  15. Add your watermark or name. Merge all. Add borders.


  16. Save in JPG optimizer format

You are done !!!

I hope you enjoyed doing this tutorial
