What you'll need:

You'll need a tube of choice I am using a gorgeous tube by Keith Garvey. Which you can purchase at his store HERE.

A gorgeous PTU kit by Lexi's Creationz called Glitter N Greasewhich you can find out where to purchase this kit HERE.
Be sure to check out ALL her other awesome kits!

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Half toned back up for the name.

Mask of choice - mine is from Gem's Taggin Scraps which you can find HERE.
Leave some love when you download!
I used mask 21.

Let's get started!

Open up a 600x600 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.

Open element 37 from the kit which is a frame. Copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 add a new layer then open up a paper of choice, I used paper 3 from the kit copy and paste it INTO the selection. DO NOT deslect yet! Take your tube a close up if it comes with one copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it to your liking then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Deselect then duplicate the tube in the frame and mirror it then merge down and change the blend mode to soft light.

Open up element 22 from the kit copy and paste it over the tubes in the frame but move it below the frame layer itself. Re-size it so it fits nicely and use your eraser tool to remove what hangs over the frame.

Open up element 27 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer under the frame but above the other layers re-size and arrange to your liking.

Now we're adding stuff above the frame layer itself. Open up element 9 from the kit which is a cityscape, re-size and arrange so it fits nicely.

Open up your tube mine is not a full tube so I made it that she was at the bottom of the frame then added element 31 near the bottom re-sizing it so it fit nicely. Duplicate your tube layer then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3 then change the blend mode to softlight. Apply a drop shadow of H 1 V 1 Opacity 50 Blur 5.00 Color Black to the bottom tube layer.

Open up a paper of choice I used paper 6 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer below everything then apply your mask. Merge group then arrange it to your liking.

Back on the top layer add your name in a color of choice then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify and expand by 2 then add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice then go to selections-modify and expand by 2 again add a new layer and flood fill with the same color you typed out your name in. Arrange that layer below everything other font layer and add the same drop shadow as you did earlier.

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