Background Embossed Frame

Supplies needed:  PI 10,  probably will work on PI XL, or other versions. . FM Filters (Blend Emboss); Simple (Quick Tile) Neology (Blend Mosaic), Mura Seamless (Emboss, Shift at Arch), Border Mania (Frame 2),  ScreenWorks (Net Pattern), graphic or tube of your choice (one that is plain, not busy looking).  Resize if necessary.   Ok, here we go!         Orange image was downloaded from and tubed by me.
1.  BACKGROUND.  In this tutorial  we make the background first as we need it as a pattern for our frame. 

  a.  Open a new 200x200 colored image.  Choose a color from your tube as the background color. I used a light orange. Copy your tube and paste into the image.  Merge all.  Simple; Quick Tile.  Photo: Noise: Add Noise: under Options: Variance 10, Uniform and monochrome checked.  Neology: Blend Mosaic; Mura Seamless: Shift at Arch; FM Tools: Blend Emboss two times. Minimize this square for now. 

 2. FRAME.  Take your copy of the resized tube, Open new image about 350 longest length.  Choose a light background, in my case, I chose light beige.  You may put a shadow on the tube, it's up to you.  Merge all.  Choose two colors from your tube.  Adjust: Expand Canvas: Add 3 pixel border in one color,  Add 5 pixels in white. Click with magic wand, and fill with the background pattern you have made. (Click, copy background image, Edit: Paste: Fit into Image:  While selected, go to Border Mania: Frame 2: Border and Frame Width 5;  Eye Candy 5: Bevel: Bevel at default. Deselect. Add 3 pixel border, with chosen color. 

This is what you have so far.   
3. Add border of 15 in your second color.  Click with magic wand. Screenworks: Net Pattern.  Deselect.

4.  Repeat the above of 3 dark, 5 light and fill with background pattern, Border Mania frame the same, add 3 of dark.  Deselect.  Add 25 pixel border of white and fill with your pattern. Photo: Add noise: Variance 10, uniform and monochrome checked. FM Tools: Blend: Emboss once or twice. Deselect.


5.  Repeat the 3-5-3 border.  Add corners if desired.   You may use mine if you wish  Click HERE
