Set subdomain to use CNAME when domain is with another register

I have a .scot domain registered with Dynadot with shared web hosting from Godaddy. Currently I have my DNS records on Dynadot to point to Godaddy's nameservers.

 

I am now in the process of trying to create my subdomains on GoDaddy but there only appears to be options to create a subdomain pointing to a directory or redirected to another URL. However, I am needing to point a subdomain to a CNAME for domains.tumblr.com.

 

For example say I have the domain mywebsite.scot, how would I setup a subdomain blog.mywebsite.scot with CNAME domains.tumblr.com? Or is this only possible for domains purchased through Godaddy?

 

Edit: Please ignore, was looking in the wrong place to create a CNAME. Dynadot places subdomain creation, forwards, and CNAMES together. If looking to create subdomain to host web apps or forward to another url use create domain. If looking to create a CNAME go to DNS for your domain on GoDaddy and select 'Add'.
