Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using a tube by Jennifer Janesko.
The tube is available at
Mura's Meisters Wallpaper
Open a new image 600x250.
Open up a tube of choice.
Resize your tube if needed. I resized
the one I am using 70%.
Copy and paste the tube as a new layer onto
your new image.
Duplicate the tube once & hide the
copy tube by clicking on the eye icon
on your layers palette for that layer.
On the original tube layer,
apply the plugin Mura's Meisters
Wallpaper -default settings.
Add a new layer above the wallpaper layer.
Fill this layer with a color from your tube.
Apply the mask SpawnsFSMask86.
Duplicate the wallpaper layer & move it
to above the mask layer. Hide it for a moment.
Using our selection tool & while holding the
shift button down - select around two vertical
rectangles on the opposite side of your
top tube layer.
Unhide the copy wallpaper layer.
Still on the mask layer, go to selections -
invert. Now select the copy wallpaper layer on
your layer palette - press delete on your keyboard.
Now back to the original wallpaper layer.
Duplicate this layer again.
On the copy layer, adjust - blur -Gauassian blur 15.00.
Lower the opacity on this layer to 75. You can find this
on the layers palette.
This should give a slight misted view of the layer below it.
Back to the tube layer that is on the mask rectangles.
Apply the plugin Xero: Radiance - default settings.
Select a font of choice. Type out a word of choice
to fit your tag. I chose the word HEARTS. You can do
it with caps on or off - it is up to you. Position the word
vertical and in one of the empty spaces of the mask.
Unhide your main tube layer.
Add a drop shadow of choice to the layer.
Add a new layer above the previous layers.
Fill with a color of choice.
Select this layer with your magic wand tool.
Selections - modify - contract - 4.00
Press delete button on your keyboard. Select none.
Merge layers visible.
Add artist copyright information & name of choice.
Save as png.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
