#9. Open the tube your going to use.. on this one that I used of ŠNocturne

I had to erase the bottom of the dress where it was flat straight across

that don't look good on a tag unless you erase, soften it or cover it with something else..

Below is the settings for the erase brush.

#10.  Copy and paste your tube over to your working image. I applied a 3D drop shadow to the woman tube but had it

checked for the shadow to be on its own layer.. so I could erase the bottom of the shadow so the dress

appeared transparent.

it over on top of all the other layers.. put the other two blue roses below the gold bow. Below is how your image should look
