This tutorial was written by me on 5 September 2012. Any similarity to other tutorials is not intentional.

Tube and close up of choice. I am using Amy Matthews art, I love her work! 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 from one of my favourite scrappers, Kittz. It's called Emo Love, and you can download the kit HERE.

Template - I used MC_MisfitChoiceTemplate_July2012_02 by Melissa at Creative Misfits blog. It's in the post of Monday 6 August 2012 HERE.

Don't forget to leave some love when you download!

Filters - Xero Radiance and Porcelain

Font of choice, I used 2Peas PixieDust.

Let's start!

Open your template, shift D to Duplicate and delete the original. Delete the credits layer, layer 4.

Layer 7 - Selections, select all, float, defloat (float/defloat). New raster layer and floodfill with a colour from your tube. Select none, drop shadow and delete the original layer.

Fill the template layers with papers or colours or gradients!

Copy and paste E45 just above your background layer. Place in the bottom left corner, drop shadow.

Copy and paste E63 above the top left rectangle layer, re-size 60%. Adjust sharpness, sharpen, drop shadow. Place on the left of your tag, see mine for placement. Mine is just peeking out behind the template layers a bit!

On Raster 3, float/defloat and create a new raster layer. Floodfill with a gradient to suit your tag. Copy and paste your close up tube and position how you like it! Selections, invert, delete. Crop your tag if you have any of the tube hanging over your tag. Merge the two tube layers. Effects, xero Porcelain - default settings but change the softness setting to 15 and the blue channell to 0. Duplicate your tube, and on the top copy adjust blur, gaussian blur 4. Change the blend mode to screen. On the original - effects texture blinds with these settings:

width 3
opacity 39
colour white
both boxes ticked.

Drop shadow the original tube, and change the blend mode to Luminance.

Float/defloat raster 2 and floodfill a new raster layer with a colour to suit your tube, drop shadow. Delete the original layer.

Copy and paste E21, image mirror, image flip. Place towards the top right of your tag.

Copy and paste E7, re-size 85%. See my tag for placement.

Copy and paste E44, re-size 60%, place bottom right of tag.

Copy and paste E29, re-size 80%, place bottom right of tag.

Copy and paste E16, re-size 50%, place bottom right.

Copy and paste E23, re-size 50% and place where it looks best!

I cropped and re-sized my tag at this point, and added my main tube. Effects, xero radiance. I just hit the random button until I get something I like! Duplicate the tube, on the copy adjust blur, gaussian blur 4 and change the blend mode to soft light. Drop shadow the original tube layer.

Copy and paste E8, re-size 50%. Place in the bottom left corner.

Copy and paste E10 and place just above the background layer. Duplicate and place one at the top and one at the bottom of your tag.

Add some sparkles!!!!

Add your name and your artist's copyright and you're finished!

I tried this tut myself before publishing and came up with this.
