Floral Tube of your choice.

Ok Let's get started...

1. Open new transparent image - 500x500.

This is what you should have...


8. With Group-Raster3 highlighted, using your floodfill tool, and the ivory satin as the foreground pattern,
begin clicking all over the ruffle, until
you have it filled in as much as you like.
If you look at the screenshot for Step 10,
you can see how much I filled it in.
Note: If using pspX or higher, you may find it won't fill properly by just clicking...
try the following...
Keep the ivory satin in the foreground box, and click on the floodfill tool,
Set the Match mode to Opaque, Tolerance to 0, Blend Mode to Normal, and Opacity to 79.
Then just click once or twice on the lacey part of the heart.

9. Move layer 2 (the black heart shape) to the top.

10. Using the deform tool, drag the shape
until it fits nicely over the edges of the ruffle.
Don't worry about the small bit at the top of the heart,
we'll fix that later...*S*...
See screen shot below.

Floodfill with the gold glitter fill.
