This tutorial was written by Brunette on June 14th 2012.
 Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.
Do not copy and paste my tutorials or claim as your own you may link to them for group challenges.

What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using a gorgeous tube by Gothique Starr which you can purchase at The PSP Project HERE.
Be sure to check out all the other great artists there!

My tube however was purchased at PSP Tubes Emporium.

A super cute kit by Roo called Candy Gurl. You can purchase this kit at The PSP Project HERE.
Be sure to check out ALL her other awesome kits!

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Pirmokas for the name.

Mask of choice - mine is from weescottlass creations which you can find HERE.
I used mask number 219 you'll see on the right side they are bundled in bulk downloads :)

Let's get started!

Open up a 700X700 canvas, we can always re-size/crop later.

I like BIG tags LOL.

Open up the pink circle frame element 29 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it if you need to.

Now take your dropper tool and pick two colors from your tube to use, I chose a pink and black then make a foreground/backgroud gradient. Add a new layer below your frame layer and flood fill it with your gradient. Now add your mask and merge group. I also added a new layer flood filled it with white and added the mask again making sure that layer was below the gradient layer. It just makes it a little brighter. On the gradient layer I also added the closeup tube mirrored then applied the mask to it and changed the blend mode to screen.

Open up the circle sparkles element 15 from the kit copy and paste it on  the masked tube layer re-size it if you need to.

Open up the monitor line element 30 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer again on the masked tube layer re-size it a little. Then take your eraser tool and erase what is overhanging the frame. Change the blend mode to soft light then add a drop shadow.
My settings were:
H 2
V 2
Opacity 60
Blur 4
Color Black

I also used the wine glass, cupcake,the black lollipop with lips, and the stuffed toy.I arranged them along the bottom of my tag of course re-sizing them so they fit nicely there.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer above everything else and add a drop shadow, same settings as earlier.

Add your name in your font and color of choice then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 2 add a new layer flood fill it with white or a color of choice then add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise uniform checked, 35% noise and monochrome checked. DO NOT deslect yet go to modify and expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the color you used for your name move it below all the name layers and add a drop shadow.

Here are the settings I used

H 2
V 2
Opacity 60
Blur 4.00
Color Black

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