This tutorial was written by me on 16 November 2011. Any similarity to other tutorials is not intentional.

Tube of Choice. I am using a gorgeous tube by Jamie Kidd. If you want to use the same tube you can purchase it, and a license to use it at CDO.

Scrapkit - I used a FTU kit which Kristin made for the Creative Misfits blog. You can download it HERE.

Template - missy_tagtemplate310 which you can download HERE

Don't forget to leave some love!

Filters - psp filter Artistic Effects Halftone
Xero Radiance
Mura Meister Copies

Font of choice, I used Baby Cakes NF.

Let's start!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate it and close the original. Delete the credits and the wordart by Missy layers.

Add your main tube as your top layer so you can see where you're placing things!

Using your target brush, change the colour of the glittered circle layer to something which matches your tube.

On the circle layer. Selections, select all, float, de-float and copy and paste a paper, I used paper 9. Re-size if you want to. Selections, invert, delete, select none. Crop your tag to avoid the dreaded overhang shadow! Delete the original circle layer. I added a gradient glow to the paper layer to make it stand out a bit.

Gradient background layer - selections, select all, float, de-float. New raster layer, and fill with a gradient to match your tube. Select none, delete original gradient background layer.

Close the pump up the volume layer for now, we'll come back to that later.

On the frame 1 layer, add noise random 35% monochrome checked. Do this to all the frame layers and add a slight drop shadow.

Copy and paste ribbon 2 and re-size 75%. Place on the left of your frame, drop shadow.

Copy and paste ribbon 1, re-size, place on the right side, drop shadow.

Frame 2 background - float, defloat, new raster layer. Fill with your gradient. Copy and paste your close up tube, delete and select none. Crop your tag. Duplicate your tube. Go to effects, artistic effects halftone and apply using these settings.

Change the blend mode to soft light. Change the blend mode on the original tube layer to Screen.

Repeat for your frame 3 background layer, mirroring your tube.

Copy and paste the sequins above your background layer. Re-size 75%.

Copy and paste wire, re-size 115%

Copy and paste the splatter, re-size 95%. Duplicate twice and place around the outside of your tag.

Copy and paste the hat above the frame 3 layer. Re-size 60% and drop shadow. Place over the sequins.

Copy and paste flower 2, re-size 55%, sharpen, drop shadow.

Copy and paste the splatter, re-size 95%. Duplicate twice and place around the outside of your tag.

Copy and paste the star, re-size 95%, adjust sharpen, drop shadow. Place on the top right side of your frame. Duplicate, re-size 75%. See my tag for placement.

Copy and paste skull 1. Image mirror, re-size 35%. Place between your two stars. Sharpen and drop shadow.

Copy and paste bow 4, re-size 345%, sharpen, drop shadow and place over your left frame. Duplicate, re-size 80% and place over your right frame.

Copy and paste kitty frame 1, image mirror. Re-size 70%, drop shadow, sharpen and place top left of your frame.

Copy and paste tattoo, re-size 40%, sharpen, drop shadow and place bottom right.

On your main tube layer, effects Xero Radiance, hit the random button until you get something you like. Duplicate tube and on the copy, adjust blur, gaussian blur 3. Set the blend mode to soft light. Drop shadow the original tube layer.

Add some sparkles!!!!

Add your name and re-size your tag. Go back to the pixel word layer you closed earlier. Above the gradient frame layer type out some text using a pixel font. I wrote Emolicious. Object, align, centre in canvas, convert to raster. Apply Mura Meister copies, Tiling, default settings but change the gap size to 2. Float/Defloat the gradient frame layer. On the pixel word layer, selections, invert, delete, select none.

Add your artist's copyright & you're finished!
