I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.
What we are Making:

You Leave Me Breathless

  • Place duplicated tube under the frame on the left side. Duplicate. On bottom layer change blend mode to multiply, on tube layer above this layer change blend mode to screen. Or, what looks best with your tube.
  • On the top round frame erase the part of the circle going across your tubes body eraser settings: round 30 40 25. Refer to screen shot if needed.
  • C/p E 89 R 52% Unsharp Mask D/S Move to mid area of right frame, the arrow should be resting just of the top frame of the right frame Using selection tube point to point and remove area of arrow laying on top of frames. Zoom in if you need to. Delete. Deselect
  • Close off layer with eifel tower (should be raster 2) and mask layer (If you didn't delete the white bg layer make sure it is also closed). Merge Visible. Resize 82%
  • Open up closed layers.
  • Move frame up a bit and to the right. I removed the larger heart that is between the frames. You can leave it or remove it as per your preference.

Adding Elements
  • C/P E 23 Effects Edge Effects Enhance, move it up a bit to your liking.
  • C/P E 103 R 68% Move under the top left of frame so all you see are the flowers, the clips will be somewhat visible. Unsharp Mask. D/S

  • C/P E 92 R 68% move toward bottom of canvas. I changed the blur on my drop shadow to 8.92 as I found the lower blur to be to harsh.
  • Now, way back at the beginning of this tutorial we closed off a layer. Open it now. Move it around a bit til parts are poking out the left side.

Finishing up

  • Resize now if you like. Most forums have a size limit so I change most of mine to no more width or height of 650 px
  • Click Selection. On the create selection from: click on merge opaque and then crop to selection. This will get rid of any un-needed clear bg layers. (You don't have to do this but I think it helps with keeping a nice, transparent bg)
  • Now add your copyright and license information.
  • If you want to save as a blank for making sigs for others save here as a pspimage.
  • Now, add your name Export as PNG and you are done.
