You'll need a tube of choice I am using the awesome art of Michael Calandra. You can purchase his art for signature tags at MPT.
AND while you're there be sure to check out the other awesome artists there!

Fonts of choice
Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

A kit of choice I am using a gorgeous collab  kit called Into the Night by Sarah and Polkadot Scraps.  You can find this kit over at Pimp my tags with Scraps store here.
Thanks so much ladies!


Let's get started!

Open a new 700x700 canvas - we can always crop/re-size later!

From Polkadot Scraps portion of the kit open up frame 7 copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. With your magic wand select inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 now open up a paper I used paper 3 from Sarah's portion of the kit then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Move this layer below the frame layer.

This is where I added my tube since it is only a half tube I copied and pasted it as a new layer arranging it where I wanted it then duplicated it and moved that layer down below the frame but above the paper layer. Now you can take your eraser tool and erase what is over the frame so it looks like shes in the frame.

I took the tombstone and the tree from Sarah's portion of the kit copied and pasted them onto the canvas re-sizing them so they fit nicely  I arranged one on each side. Then I opend up the moon from Polkadot Scraps portion of the kit re-sized it so it fit nicely copied and pasted it on to the frame moving it below the tree layer and up in the top left corner. Placement is up to you with these elements don't feel you have to make it exactly like mine.

I used ribbon 4 from Polkadot Scraps portion of the kit for along the bottom of the tag. I also used the spray2 from her portion of the kit copied and pasted it onto the canvas arranged it so it was under the other layers duplicated it then mirrored and flipped it.

I wrote 'Into the night...' at the top of the tag and added the same gradient glow and drop shadow you'll see in the screen-shots for the name.

Now we're going to add your name in a font of choice with a gradient glow and a drop shadow. Settings I used shown in the screen-shots below.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.
