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
 Xero: Radiance
SpawnsFSMask86 here

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.
Merge group.

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.
Select none.

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.
