Let’s Start
Open a new canvas 851 x 315 and flood fill with a color of choice
I used: #A34FBA
Rename Color BG
Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer – rename Paper BG
I used Paper 5
Position where you want it and change the blend mode to Luminance (Legacy)

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer – rename Base Tube
Position where it looks best on the right side of your canvas
Duplicate and rename the copy Top Tube
On the Base Tube add a drop shadow of choice – I used:
V&H: 2 / Opacity: 60 / Blur: 12.87 / Color: #151515 / Shadow on new layer: Unchecked

Activate the Top Tube
Effects, Plugins, Xero – Porcelain
Use the default settings

Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Leaves
Hide your Chainlink layer for a moment
Position your Leaves behind Back Rose (and below on the layer palette)
Add the same drop shadow as used on the Tube
Erase any leaves you can see below the Back Rose
Unhide Chainlink layer

Activate Chainlink layer

Position so the left edge of the circle is on the right edge of the canvas

Activate Paper BG and duplicate
On the copy – Layers, Arrange, Bring to Top
