This tutorial was written by me on 19 September 2012. Any similarity to other tutorials is not intentional.


Tube of choice. I am using a gorgeous tube by José Cano, her name is Kelly! You can purchase this tube and a license to use it at Scraps and the City

Scrapkit - I used a stunning kit by Rissa's Designs called Emo Summer, thanks Rissa! You can purchase this kit from a lot of stores, please go via her blog HERE

Template - I used Template 209 by Beth, you can download it HERE

Filters - Xero Radiance and Porcelain, Penta Jeans, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow

Font of choice, I used CatholicSchoolGirls BB

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

Let's start!

Open the template. shift D to duplicate the template and delete the original. Delete the credits layer. Crop your tag. Re-size to 600 x 372 pixels then increase canvas size to the size you like. Mine is 700 x 472 and I used the settings below to get my canvas how I wanted it!

Create a new raster layer, floodfill white and send to bottom.

Copy and paste your main tube above the Frame 1 layer to help with placement of your elements later on. If you use the same tube I did you'll need to re-size by 45%.

On Circle background layer - selections, select all, float, de-float (float/defloat) copy and paste paper 6. Selections, invert delete, select none. Apply a gradient glow of your choice and drop shadow.

Repeat for the remaining template layers except the glitter frame and frame background layers.

This is what I used:

Circle Frame - paper 9

Merge Frame 1 down to frame 2 - paper 8

On the glitter frame layer, either colourise to suit you tube or leave it as is, and drop shadow.

Merge background 1 and 2, float/defloat and fill a new layer with a gradient to suit your tag. Copy and paste your close up tube, selections, invert, delete, select none. Crop your tag to remove any tube hanging over your canvas. Duplicate and mirror, merge down. You'll need to re-arrange your layers so you have the gradient background then tubes then frames. On the tubes layer, effects, xero porcelain with default settings but change softness to 15 and blue channel to 0. On the copy, adjust blur, gaussian blur 4. Change the blend mode to screen. On the original, change the blend mode to Luminance and drop shadow. On the gradient layer apply penta jeans at settings 21 and 4. Repeat the jeans effect on the original tube close up layer.

Making sure you're on your top layer, copy and paste heart button, re-size 40%, . Place to the right side of your tag and drop shadow (Drop shadow all your elements).

Copy and paste flower3, re-size 50%, image mirror.

Copy and paste honeysuckle vine, re-size 70% and move under your circle frame layer. Duplicate, image mirror.

Copy and paste drink element, re-size 40%

Copy and paste ribbon, re-size 40%. Duplicate and drag over to the right side of your tag.

Copy and paste the yo-yo, re-size 40%

Copy and paste the tulip under your main tube layer, re-size 50%.

Copy and paste the towel, re-size 50% and move just above your background layer

Colour your wordart layers to suit your tube and add a gradient glow.

On your main tube layer, effects xero radiance. Hit random until you get something you like.. If you are using the same tube I have, or another one with a sharp edge at the bottom, use your selection tool to highlight the bottom sharp edge, and go selections modify feather at 15. Hit delete once or twice to soften the edge and select none. Duplicate the tube layer, and on the copy, adjust blur, gaussian blur 4. Change the blend mode to soft light. Drop shadow the original layer.

Add some sparkles!!

Add your name, re-size your tag, and add your artist's copyright & you're finished!
