1- Open a new transparent image of 800 by 650 pixels

2- Set your material palette with two colours out of your flower ( I have used the colours which are in the center of the flower !)

My choice: Foreground : colour 6982a4

Background : colour e6e3bb

3- Make a rectangular gradient in your foreground with the settings below :

4-Flood fill your layer with that gradient

5- Add a new raster layer

Set your material palette with two colours out of your woman's face

My choice : Foreground : white

Background : colour d95e8d

6- Make a radial gradient as below :

Flood fill your layer with that gradient

7- Effects / plugins / Virtual painter / pastel as below

Lower the opacity of that layer to about 69

At this stage, you should have this :

8- Add a new raster layer and paint it in white

Layers / new mask layer / choose @rosa_mascara_be03 with the settings below :

Merge group

9- Add a new raster layer and flood fill it with black ( or with the colour you wish to use to draw the clouds )

Layers / new mask layer / choose Vix_mask292, same settings as on point 8

Merge group

You may lower the opacity of that layer if you wish or even change the mode !  

10- Open the tube Graphsabine_Design30 or a tube of your choice, copy it and paste it as a new layer

Image / resize that tube at 90 %

Place the tube as shown on my tag

11- Open the tube cal_guis_16_9_2008_vector_2 or a tube of your choice, copy it and paste it as a new layer

Place the tube as shown on my tag

12- We're now going to colorize a part of the face to give it the same colour as the flower ( purple flower = purple lips ...for me ! )

Adjust /Hue and saturation / Hue map as below :

It's up to you now to play with the different cursors to get the colour you want

I got the lips purple by setting the first cursor on 265 ° !

13- Effects / 3d effects / drop shadow / -1, 1, 20, 0, black

14- With your dropper tool, pick the color of your background ( d594ce for me )

Activate your airbrush tool set as below :

Apply it several times in the bottom hand right corner, in order to hide the bottom part of the woman's neck ( it may not be necessary with another tube !)

15- Add a new raster layer

Activate your brush tool and choose the text brush jc-beauty or a brush of your choice; Here are below the settings I have used for the brush jc-beauty

Apply that brush in the bottom hand right corner with a colour of your choice ; size between 200 and 221

16- Add a new raster layer

Take the brush LadyVictoire_stars_4_1 set as below or a brush of your choice

Appy that brush in the top left hand corner with the colour you want ( I've used white)
