Tube of choice/close up
Template by Lori
Font used - DorisDay
Plugins needed Optional:
Xero - radiance
penta.com - jeans
Mosiac - Antique
I am using the artwork of Keith Garvey
You can buy his tubes HERE
Let's open the template resize it down if you need to i made the canvas size set to 600x600, i took off the last layer the background layer behind the word garv, you can do the same if you like. now i want you to open a few tubes to fill each letter of garv's name and your main tube, open your main tube place in the middle, add your radiance and drop shadow. now select the inner layer of the word garv, selections all float>defloat. copy and paste each of your tube in each letter. invert>hit delete on your keyboard on each layer of your tubes as well. or you can do this step one by one.
Drag each tube layer under the outer frame of the garv, i also selected the inner layer of the word garv i used my "chage to target brush" i used a color blue and i in a brushing motion i changed the color to the background, the black stayed black but the light greys turned blue, if you don't have this tool you can just change the hue & saturation by going to adjust. i then turned each tube layer to black and white, i changed the blend modes.
i added radiance and then i added penta.com-jeans settings of choice. now on the outer word garv the white part i added noise to it more to make it stand out, there is already noise on this layer but if you resized it, or just doesn't stand out you can add more like me, added a drop shadow to this layer, hide your main tube layer and merged everything else.
now the "girl" font, i added a bevel effect to it, i then made the bottom part of the G intertwine around my leg of the tube. next i merged my main tube and girl font with the rest of the tag. i then duplicated this layer and added the mosiac - antique effect to it, settings of choice.
Now you can add your copyrights then your font, Save as a PNG and you're done.
