PTU Tut- Mysterious Beauty

This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's.
Gimp or program of choice
PTU kit Violeta from A Taggers Scrap
Tube of choice. I am using the art of Ismael Rac. You must have a proper license to use these tubes. Purchase them at his store HERE 
Mask: 248 from weescotslass

-File>New 600x600 px.
-Open frame 1. Layer>Scale Layer 85%. Place in the center of canvas. Select the Fuzzy Select Tool (magic wand). Click inside the frame. Select>Grow 5. Open paper 17. Move below the frame layer in the layer box. Layer>Transparency>Add Alpha Channel. Select>Invert. Delete. Open tube. Make the top layer. Place in the center of the frame. Layer>Duplicate. Move duplicate below the frame layer. Delete. Select>None. Make the top tube layer active. Filters>Light & Shadow>Drop Shadow 2, 2, 5, black, 50. Layer>Merge Down (to merge tube with shadow). Select the eraser tool and erase the legs of the tube so it looks like she is sticking out of the frame. Make the frame layer active and repeat drop shadow.
