Let's get started!
Open a 700X700 Transparent new image.
Open Paper5 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Open your Mask Layers> New Mask Layer From Image...Scroll down to find your mask Invert Mask Data Unchecked and hit OK.
Open Frame Image> Resize 650X638 and copy and paste as a new layer.
With your magic wand tool (Add(Shift) RGB Value Tolerance/Feather 0 Contiguous and Anti-alias checked Outside Click in the middle of your frame. Selecions> Modify Expand 5 and copy and paste Paper8 and a new layer Selections> Invert and hit the delete button once on your keyboard.
Copy and paste BloodSplatter1 as a new layer and hit delete on your keyboard. I duplicated this layer and did Adjust> Blur Gaussian Blur 3.00
Copy and paste Wirefence 2 as a new layer and hit delete on your keyboard. I duplicated this layer and did Adjust> Blur Gaussian Blur 3.00 Selections> Select None.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. I duplicated my tube so one layer was above the frame and one layer was below the frame. I then carefully used the reaser tool to erase the extra parts of the tube that were showing.
Open Arrow (2) and copy and Paste as a new layer. Position toward the bottom of your tag and when happy with it Layers>Duplicate Adjust> Blur Gaussian Blur 3.00 Layers> Merge Down Layers> Duplicate Image> Flip Image> Mirror.
Open Bow Image> Resize 200X216 and copy and paste as a new layer. I moved it up and to the left. I then duplicated the layer and put the gaussian blur on it and then merged down.
Open Heart4 Image> Resize 50X47 and copy and paste as a new layer. Move over so it is on top of the bow.
Open Ivy and copy and paste as a new layer. I moved it up so there was a little something over my tubes head and then moved down so it is above the arrow layers.
Open Candels Image> Resize 200X200 and copy and paste as a new layer. I moved this down and to the left.
Open CandleSkull and copy and paste as a new layer. I moved this down and to the right.
Open Mist Image> Resize 300X300 and copy and paste as a new layer. I moved it down over the candle layer so it looked like they just got blown out. I duplicated it and moved over the CandleSkull.
Open Cross and copy and paste as a new layer. I moved it to the left so it was over the candles.
This part is optional because it is kinda hard and I don't know if I can explain it well enough for you.
Open Mirror Image> Resize 256X500 and copy and paste as a new layer. Image> Mirror and move it to the right and below your candleSkull layer. Open your tube and with your pick tool rotate it so the face will be in your mirror. I then lowered the opacity of the tube so I could see the mirror and made sure the face was in the mirror and used my eraser tool to erase the excess tube. I then brought the opacity of my tube back up to 100. I duplicated the face put on my gaussian blur and changed the blend mode to soft light. I then used my Soften Brush around the edges and then lowered the opacity to around 79.
Once you are happy with where everything is positioned Layers> Merge Merge Visible.
