I am using a tube by Johnnie Grez.
This artist retired a long time ago &
his tubes are not available anymore.
MB & SW 17 by Moonbeams & Spiderwebs
Open a 700x700 new image.
Open a tube of choice.
On your Materials Palette,
select a main color from your tube
for the fill option. X out or hide the
stroke color option for now.
Select your rectangle preset shape tool.
Make sure it is on the rectangle shape &
not the square shape.
Draw out a rectangle shape approximately
the same height or length of your tube.
For my tag, I did a vertical shape.
Convert the shape to raster.
Positin this layer behind your tube layer.
Back to your Materials Palette.
Choose a different color from your tube.
Now select the ellipse preset tool and make
sure it is set to the circle preset.
Draw out a circle to desired size.
Convert to raster layter & duplicate once.
Position each circle as wanted on your tag.
Apply the EyeCandy4000 Glass plugin.
Settings are in the screenshot below.
Use a color of choice from your tube.
Once applied, go the blend mode for this layer
& set it to overlay or a blend of choice.
Selet the rectangle layer in your layer palette.
Select the plugin EyeCandy4000 Marble.
Change the Bedrock & Vein colors to colors
to fit your tag. I did the Bedrock color the same
color as my rectangle.Click okay once you are
happy with how the marble looks.
Duplicate the rectangle marble layer. On the
original layer, Adjust - Blur - Gauassian Blur 7.00.
Add a new raster layer above the background layer.
Fill with a black or dark color from your tag.
Apply the mask MB & SW 17. Merge group.
Resize this mask 93% & move up slightly if needed.
Making sure the top layer of your tag is selected,
choose your font tool. Select a font of choice &
colors on your material palette as well. Type out
word or words of choice. Positon as wanted on your tag.
I positioned mine at the bottom of my tag.
Convert to raster.
Merge the layers of your tag.
