Now add any elements you want to your tag.  I used:

flowerso - Resized 65%
flower4 - Resized 35% and 20%
Paste your tube as a new layer - Duplicate - Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur 3 - Change blend mode to soft light.
Activate your original tube layer - Apply radiance with these settings or use what ever looks best for your tube.


Apply a drop shadow I used :  V & H=2 - Opacity 40 - Blur 4 - Black
Apply same drop shadow to all elements you added EXCEPT square  lace frame
Apply a subtle drop shadow to it - I used V&H=0 - Opacity 30 - Blur 3 - Black
If you are going to resize your tag do it now.
Apply appropriate copyright, license number and your name.
Hide white background layer - Merge visible and save as a PNG.

Here's another example using the awesome art of Keith Garvey.

Enjoy your new tag and hope to see you back soon!
