A gorgeous FTU kit by Designs by Vaybs called Fall which you can download HERE.

Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow

Let's get started!

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.
I like my tags BIG LOL.

Open up your kit an in the elements folder grab element 24 which should be a circle of leaves. Copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Now take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 and add a new layer. Go to your paper folder and pick paper 14 from the kit then paste it into the selection then select none move this layer below the circle frame.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer mine is only a half tube so what I did was arranged it where I wanted then duplicated it and moved the duplicate below the frame. Then took my eraser tool and erased what I wanted on the top layer to make it look like shes coming out of the frame.  Duplicate the top tube layer change the blend mode to soft light and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 5. Do the same for the tube layer under the frame then add a drop shadow to the VERY bottom tube layer I used H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Next open up elements 44, 49, 58 and 59. Arrange the flowers element 44 near the bottom left of the tag, arrange the star element 49 near the middle right of the tag, arrange the birds elements 58 and 59 on the bottom left and right of the tag.

Using element 52 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer move it below the frame layer.

Open up paper 13 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer below the frame and the wire you just added. Then apply your mask and merge group and duplicate.

Now in your font and color of choice making sure you at the very top layer on your palette add your name then go to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise- random selected, monochrome selected, noise percent at 36. Then add a gradient glow my settings shown in the screen-shot below then add the same drop shadow as earlier and change the blend mode to hard light.

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