& have purchased the tube.

Add a new layer & add the word 'life' to your tag.
Add some noise- Uniform/ Monochrome/ 80%.
Add the same gradient glow & drop shadow.

Next, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Now, add your name.
Add a bevel at these settings:
Give it a gradient glow at the same setting as the word art.
Then add a drop shadow.

Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG.
