Tube of choice. I am using a gorgeous Amy Matthews tube from CDO. You can purchase this tube and a license to use it at CDO

Scrapkit - I used the stunning kit called Misfit Princess by Rissa's Designs, thanks Rissa! You can purchase the kit via her blog HERE

Template - Just a Little Crush template by Crys, you can download it HERE

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

Font of choice, I used Santas Big Secret BB

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

Let's start!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate it and close the original.

Floodfill the bottom layer with white.

Working from the bottom layer up - on layer 5, selections, select all, float, defloat (float/defloat) copy and paste paper 9. Selections invert delete, select none. Apply a gradient glow and drop shadow.

Repeat on the template layers. I used:

Raster 2 and copy of Raster 2 - Paper 13
Raster 3 - Paper 1
Raster 7 - Paper 14

On Raster 8, add noise - uniform, 35%, monochrome ticked.

Drop shadow each element as you go.

Copy and paste element 72, the lollipops and place it between the top left square and the rectangle layers.

On Raster 4, the large circle, float/defloat, add a new raster layer and floodfill with a gradient to suit your tube. Copy and paste your close up tube a couple of times to fill the circle, selections, invert, delete, select none. Merge the tubes together, delete the original template layer. On your close up tube layer, crop the tag to remove any overhang. Effects Xero porcelain on the default settings but change the softness to 15 and the blue channel to 0. Duplicate the tubes and 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.

Add the same noise effect to Raster 6 that you used for raster 8 and drop shadow both of these layers.

Copy element 47, the spirally skulls and re-size 70% and paste it over the small front circle.

On both wordart layers, apply a gradient glow and drop shadow.

Copy and paste element 79, the green ribbon, re-size 20% and mirror. Place it at the bottom of the large circle.

Copy and paste element 65, re-size 45%. Duplicate, image mirror. Duplicate again and flip. See my tag for placement.

Copy and paste element 50, the blue skull, re-size 40%

Copy and paste element 27, the shoes, re-size 65%

Copy and paste element 42, the lips button, re-size 70%.

Copy and paste element 52, the Toxic Bitch badge.

Copy and paste element 57, the blue bottle and re-size 35%. Place this under the yellow rose.

Copy and paste element 80, the blue ribbon and re-size 20%.

Re-size your tag and add your main tube. Effects, xero radiance. Hit random until you get something you like.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!!
