Let's open kristin's punk template 1, image> canvas size 600x600. get rid or everything you don't need i also got rid of the skull, but you can keep it if you want. now let's close out of all of the layers besides the last one, should be the circle. selections all> float> defloat copy and paste paper of choice, i used paper 25, invert>delete select none. get rid of the original layer. now on your paper circle add your gradient glow settings of choice. i added like 2 but i didn't use a plugin, so add two if you'd like i added noise and jeans. now add a drop shadow and hide this layer. unhide the next two. should be your "punk" word art. i selected the red punk words, selections all> float >defloat i added a new raster layer, flood filled color of choice, i used a purplish color. select none. get rid of the red layer. I added noise and a drop shadow to this.

I then select the top punk layer which should be the black, selections all> float> defloat copy and paste your tubes of choice. i copied and pasted a few at once then once you've dragged the tubes in the letters where you like them, invert>delete on each layer. select none. i then closed out of both punk layers, merged my tubes, unhide both punk layers, i then select the tube layer, went to adjust> hue and saturation, both dials on zero to turn black and white. i also lowers the opacity on the tubes layer to blend more into the black wordart then i added the radiance plugin on it twice, then use transmission plugin using settings of choice.

Now merge all of these layers, hide them, next unhide the next layer, should be the black rectangles, i added the jeans effect to them, settings of choice, i then added gradient glow - but again i used a different way, so if you are using gradient glow. use the color of choice, then using your magic wand tool click on the glow then add noise to it if you'd like, then a drop shadow. i then unhide the stars also added noise to them then merging them all together. now unhide all of your layers, i then also moved "better to be" where i wanted it to go, added noise then a drop shadow.

I then copied and pasted my main tube where i wanted it to go, i also added radiance to the tube and a drop shaow. the radiance is optional i just like to use this.  Now it's time for the fun part to add the elements, i used the skull with rose, black flower, attitude tag, crown, purple sequins, glitter x, wired star, black cuff/belt. now i resized all of these down and placed them around the tag where i liked them, adding drop shadows.

now add your mask, i used paper 39, then add your copyrights, add your name and save as a png and you’re done!
