This tutorial was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.
The name of the tube is Lethal Attitude
You can find the mask under Sparkle Masks.;)
Apply your mask of choice & merge group. Resize 105 %.
Apply the same mask & merge group. No need to resize this one.
Add a drop shadow of choice. I used 1 4 40 4 throughout this tutorial.
Resize 25% & sharpen. Move it over the license plate on the car.
This is to add a 'touch' of pink, btw.;)
Add a drop shadow.
Place to the left of the car. See mine for placement.
Sharpen & add a drop shadow.
Move so it looks like its sitting on the briefcase. Add your drop shadow.
On top tube, add a gaussian blur of 3. Change the blend mode to screen at 60%.
Duplicate this layer & position both someplace near the feet of your tube
(see my tag for where I placed mine.)
Sharpen (yes, this does make a difference.)
Erase excess around the tag & to your liking.
I put a layer at the bottom of my tag &
flood filled it with a dark colour so I could 'see' to clean mine up.
Duplicate your name layer & on the bottom layer,
add a gradient glow in a grey colour like shown:
depending on your preference of thickness.
