Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow (Optional)

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

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up the template then hit Shift+ D this will open the template on a whole new canvas. Close the original template file.

On the rounded rectangle layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer now use a gradient I used two different colors from my tag and made a background/foreground one then flood fill it. DO NOT deselect yet copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange it to your liking on either side then go to selections-invert and hit delete, duplicate and change then blend mode to screen. Go to selections-invert to undo the invert then go to modify and expand by 3 then flood fill with a color of choice I used white and added some noise to it. Close off the original rounded rectangle layer. Add a drop shadow of H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

On the circle layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat now open up a paper of choice I used paper 16 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it to your liking then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Change the blend mode of this layer to Luminance. Again go back to selections and hit invert to undo it then go to modify and expand by 3 flood fill with a color of choice I used pink and add the same noise and drop shadow as above. Close off the original circle layer.

On the bottom and top round rectangles we're going to do the same thing go to selections-select all-float-defloat then open up a paper I used paper 21 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Close off the original rectangle layers and add the same drop shadow as above.

Top and bottom rectangle layers selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice then I added some lines in it using blinds in PSP. Add the same drop shadow as you did earlier. Close off the original layers.

Repeat the above steps minus the blinds to the bottom and top square layers as well as the top and bottom circle layers.

Now we can decorate! YAY!

I put the splatter from the kit on the bottom and top circle layers that you flood filled with a different color.

Same as the Lick this word-art then added a fat gradient glow and the same drop shadow used all along this tutorial.

Flower 1 from the kit re-sized and added to the bottom right of the tag.

The Bat element near the top left of the tag of coursed re-sized so it fits there nicely.

Bow 3 re-size to fit nicely at the corner of the first rounded rectangle we worked with first.

The Cupcake re-sized and placed near the bottom left of the tag.

Now copy and paste your main tube as a new layer arrange and re-size to your liking then duplicate it and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3 change the blend mode to soft light and lover the opacity to 32. Add the same drop shadow as earlier to the bottom tube.

Now in a font and color of choice add your name now go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used the same gradient as earlier then modify it again by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with the original color of the font arrange it to the bottom of the other font layers. Add your drop shadow same settings  to the bottom layer. You can add some noise to the middle layer if you like, its up to you. Then I changed the blend mode to Hardlight but this depends on where you place your name.

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.

Open up element 37 from the kit which is a frame copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely.

Now add a new layer and flood fill with white then apply your mask and merge group re-size it a little if you think its too big. Now make a foreground/background gradient with colors from your tube and add a new layer flood fill it with the gradient and apply your mask again and merge group. IF you re-size the white masked layer then you need to re-size this masked layer as well, I did the white layer just to make it stand out a bit more. Move these layers below the frame.

Now if your tube came with a close up great if not just use the regular tube copy and paste it as a new layer under the frame layer but above the mask layers, use your eraser tool to remove what over hangs outside the frame. Duplicate and mirror and merge down. Duplicate and change the blend mode to soft light and the bottom layer change the blend mode to screen.

Open up element 3 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer this should be above your  tubes in the frame re-size so it fits nicely duplicate and mirror. Use your eraser tool to erase what overhangs the frame. Merge these layers together and change the blend mode to overlay.

Copy and paste your main tube as a new layer above your frame of course duplicate it and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3 then change the blend mode to soft light and lower the opacity to 18 or whatever you think looks best. Add a drop shadow.
Here are my settings

Using element 6 from the kit which is a cute lil emo stuffed toy copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely and move it to the bottom right of the tube.

Now using element 29 copy and paste it as a new layer below everything except your mask layers re-size it so it fits nicely. Duplicate and mirror it until its all over your canvas.

Go through and add a drop shadow to your frame, cupcake, bow, stuffed toy.

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 (I used a foreground/background gradient) then add some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise random checked, 36% noise and monochrome checked.

Let's get started!

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

Open up the star frame from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it to fit nicely. Then take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify and expand by 3 then open up a paper of choice I used paper 5 add a new layer then paste the paper INTO the selection.  Open up your tube copy and paste the mirrored version in there then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Open up another paper of choice I used paper 3 before you copy it into the frame go back up to selections-invert now add a new layer and paste this paper into the selection, change the blend mode of this paper layer to overlay. Gray scale your tube layer in the frame and change the blend mode to Luminance L duplicate your tube and change the blend mode to soft light for that layer.  Duplicate your first paper layer and move it above the other paper layer and change the blend mode to screen.

On the frame layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 3 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used a foregroun/background gradient. Now add some noise I used Adjust-add/remove noise-add noise my settings are Random checked, Monochrome checked and at 36%. Add a drop shadow H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Open up the disco ball from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it to fit nicely and move it below the star frame. Arrange it to your liking.

Open up the keyboard copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely and move it to the bottom of your frame.

Open up the zipper flower and the purple bottle copy and paste them as new layers re-size them so they fit nicely and arrange them to your liking.

Now for the tube Arthur is awesome at giving you different hair colors to work with and such so with mine what I did was had the pink hair layer and purple hair layer hide then changed the blend mode of the pink layer to overlay. Now we can copy and paste your tube as a new layer duplicate it change the blend mode to soft light then go to add a guassian blur of 3 this is under the adjust in psp then lower the opacity to 28.

Now go through and add a drop shadow to everything include your BOTTOM tube layer not your duplicated one. I used the same settings as earlier H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Open up your paper of choice I used paper 7 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer move it below everything then add your mask and merge group. Then add some noise same settings I used below for the font.

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 random checked, 36% 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.

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.

Open up frame 2 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely. Open up a paper of choice I used paper 6 copy and paste it as a new layer below your frame and add your mask then merge group. Now with your pixel font type out some words I used Move that body then before you convert it to raster layer make sure its in the center of the canvas. Then go to MuRa's Meister Copies and use these settings shown below. My screen-shot shows the color black but I used white you can use whatever color you'd like. Now once you get that done apply your mask again then merge group. Change the blend mode of this layer to Luminance L duplicate it.

Open up disco ball 3 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas re-size it so it fits nicely. Arrange it to your liking.

Open up the cityscape copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely and place it near the bottom part of your frame.

Next open up the speaker 2 element copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it and arrange it to either sid of your tag then duplicate it and arrange it on the other side.

Now we can copy and paste your tube as a new layer  re-size it if you need to arrange it to your liking then duplicate it change the blend mode to screen then go to adjust-blur-gauassian blur set to 3 and lower the opacity to 28.

I used lights two behind the speakers re-sized them and flipped them so it looks like they're shining on the tube.

Open up keys 2 from the kit re-size and arrange to your liking I used a half tube so I put it at the bottom of the tube.

I also used the car and dice elements from the kit again re-sizing them so they fit nicely and arranging them on either side of the tag.

Now go through and add a drop shadow to everything except the mask and masked word layers. On your tube layer you're going to add the drop shadow to the BOTTOM layer not the duplicated one. These are my settings H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Add your name in a font and color of choice then add a gradient glow my settings shown in the screen-shot below, then add the same drop shadow as earlier.  Then I moved the name up around where the tube was in the middle and changed the blend mode to Luminance L.


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