Filters -
Eye Candy 4000 - gradient glow
Xero Radiance



Open the template. Shift D to duplicate. Delete the credit layer. Crop merged opaque. Image, re-size, 600 x 587. Image canvas size, 700 x 687. Layers, new raster layer, floodfill white, send to bottom.

I like to copy my tube as the top layer to help with placement of elements etc.

On layer 7, adjust, add/remove noise, uniform, 55% monochrome ticked. Add drop shadow.

On layer 6, selections, select all, selections float, selections defloat (Float/Defloat) copy and paste paper 6 as a new layer. Re-size the paper layer 90% twice. Selections, invert delete, select none. Add a soft gradient glow and drop shadow. Delete the original template layer.

Layer 5 - change to a colour to suit your tube - Adjust hue and saturation, colourize, or use a different method if you prefer. Add the gradient glow and drop shadow.

Float/defloat layer 4. Layer, new raster layer. Floodfill with a gradient to suit your tube. I used angle 45 with 3 repeats. Copy and paste your close up tube and position inside the circles. Selection, invert delete. If your tube is hanging over the edge of the canvas, crop the tag to avoid those horrible edges! Duplicate your tube. On the top layer, change the blend mode to screen. On the original layer, change the blend mode to hard light. Effects, texture blinds, width 2 opacity 30, colour white and horizontal ticked. Back to the floodfilled layer and use the same gradient glow and drop shadow. Delete the original template layer. Repeat this for template layer 1.

Layer 3 - float defloat. Copy and paste paper 5 as a new layer. Re-size 85%. Selections, invert, delete. Select none. Same gradient glow and drop shadow. Delete the original template layer.

Layer 2 - float defloat. Copy and paste paper 15 as a new layer. Re-size 85%. Selections, invert, delete. Select none. Same gradient glow and drop shadow. Delete the original template layer.

Colourize the wordart layer, drop shadow.

Now for the fun part! Add any elements you want. This is what I did, and if you want to do the same, just check my tag for placement of the elements.

Go back to your main tube layer. Effects, Xero Radiance. Click random until you get the effect you like. Duplicate the tube. On the duplicate layer, adjust blur, gaussian blur 3. Change the blend mode to soft light. Drop shadow the original tube layer.
