Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using a tube by Keith Garvey.

Paint Shop Pro X2
Mura's Meister: Copies
Xero: Illustrator
Greg's Factory Output: RGB Isolate

Open a 700x250 new image.
Open a tube closeup of choice.
Copy & paste the close up as a new layer
onto your blank image.

Resize your tube if needed. I resized
mine by 83%. Position on either side of 
your image where the tube looks best.
I positioned mine on the left side.

Duplicate the closeup twice. Hide 
the copy layers for now & select 
the original layer.

Apply the plugin Mura's Meister: Copies.
Use the setting Wall Paper(rotate) with
default settings.
Go to Adjust: Blur - Gauassian Blur 8.00.

Now apply the plugin dsb flux.
I did the Direction Right and Percentage 25.
If your tube is on the right side you may
want to switch it to Left Direction.

Unhide the first tube copy layer &
make sure it is selected on your layer palette.
Apply the plugin Xero: Illustrator with the settings: 
Abstraction: 32
Colouration: 105
Definition: 77
Change the blend mode on this layer to Hard Light.

Select your magic wand tool. Click on side 
of the layer that is opposite the current closeup
layer we are working on. Press delete. This should eliminate
the extra slightly white part of the layer.

Now unhide the top closeup layer & make sure it is
selected on your layer palette.
Apply the plugin Greg's Factory Output: RGB Isolate
with Default settings.

Select your Selection tool. Choose a shape for your 
selection. I set mine to circle. Also make sure the Mode
is set to Add ( Shift ).
I drew out three small circle shapes. After drawing the first
one out, i held the shift button to keep it selected & draw out
the second circle selection. Once selected, press delete on 
your keyboard & select none.

Add a new raster layer. Make sure it is the top layer
on your tag. Fill with a color from your tag. Select the 
layer with your magic wand tool. Selections Modify -
Contract by 4.00. Press delete on your keyboard. Select
none. Adjust - Add noise - Uniform & 12.00

Add artist copyright & name to the tag. Save your tag as a png.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
