Font of choice, I used Ice Cream Soda.

Let's start!

Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white. Copy and paste the stage. Using your magic wand, click inside the back of the stage, selections, modify, expand by 3. Copy and paste paper 11 underneath your frame later. Selections, invert delete. Copy and paste your close up above the paper layer, hit delete and select none. Lower the opacity of the close up to about 50.

Copy and paste your main tube. Drop shadow.

Drop shadow your stage layer.

Copy and paste the skull chain, re-size 80%, drop shadow.
Copy and paste fairy dust 2, re-size 85%. Duplicate, image mirror, image flip, merge down. Duplicate, rotate 90 left.

Copy and paste green swirl, re-size 80%. Adjust, add/remove noise, uniform 80, drop shadow.

Copy and paste the green brackets just above your white background layer. Effects, Xenofex2 Constellation with these settings:

Duplicate, image mirror and place so there is one on the right and one on the left! Rotate each one about 5 right & left respectively. You might need to erase some of the brackets in the middle of your tag if they show through.

Use the same constellation effects on the fairy dust layers.

Copy and paste the barbed wire, rotate left 45. Re-size 85%, drop shadow. Move on top of your stage layer.

Copy and paste the fence above your white background, apply mask. Merge group.

Copy and paste any other elements that you like & drop shadow! Add some sparkles!!!

Add your name. I used a greengradient glow on mine.

Close your white background layer & crop merged opaque. Re-size tag to whatever you like, I usually use just under 600 x 600.

Now, add your artists credits and you are finished!!
