PTU- Don't Copy My Attitude

* Click for bigger
This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working 
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP XI, 
tho' any version should work.
Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using an awesome PTU kit named 
Pick Your Poison from Tragedy
This kit is available at PFD.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Amos Madruga.
This was a private commission from my Sis, Tragedy.
For my 2nd example, I'm using the artwork of Ismael Rac.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.
Template: Template11 from my dear friend, Angi
You can find the template here on her blog.
* Leave some love when downloading the temp. ;)

Filters: Eye Candy 4000- Chrome
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Satisfaction

Drop shadow: 2 4 45 4, black.

to your own preferences.
Next add your main tube. Resize as needed.

the center circle of the tag. 
Move to just above the center circle in layers palette.

Crystal Ball- 80%. 
Place to the right behind the liquor & shotglass.

Spider- 37%. Duplicate. 
Place on one of the skulls.
Mirror the other & place on 
one of the liquor bottles.
Add any other elements, if you prefer at this time.
Now, crop/ resize your tag to your own preferences.
Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.
Next add your name. Give it a gradient glow:
And a drop shadow.
Finally, delete the white background, 
merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy. 
This is another version, using the artwork of  Ismael Rac:
