Can use own supplies or supplies I’ve provided

Needed one tube of choice

I have used the beautiful artwork of Layanna

Mask of choice

I have used a mask called B_Sunny which I received through a group I will provide as supply



Open a new 600x600 transparent image

Pick two colours from your tube. I have used #fsc99d as foreground and #efc35c as background

Make a gradient with your colours foreground to background style is sunburst and then flood fill your new image.

Layer>new mask>from image and find your mask from the drop down list, source luminance and invert mask data checked. Merge group

Add a drop shadow for the mask layer. I used V&H 1, Opacity 20, blur 1 and colour #efc35c

Now Change your background colour in your materials palette to #cd601d

Add a new raster and flood fill with your new gradient and then move this layer to the bottom.

 Open your tube and copy and paste as new layer and then duplicate this layer.  Close off the top tube temporarily.

With the bottom tube go to Effects>artistic effects>chrome and using these settings

Flaws 1, brightness 100, use original colour ticked, and colour 732ac9

Reopen top tube and resize to 90% adjust sharpness once and add a drop shadow using

V&H 2, Opacity 50, blur 2 and colour #cd601d

Image>add borders 5 symmetric checked and then with magic wand with the settings of replace, RGB value, tolerance 0 now select the border, Flood fill with gradient

Invert and using cut-out with the following settings Vertical 1, Horizontal 1, opacity 10, blur 10, shadow colour black

Invert and using the clone brush fill inside of the border area using swirly patterns of your tags background. Select none

Image>add border 1 symmetric checked colour black

Image>add borders 10 any colour except black

With magic wand select the border, flood fill with the gradient, invert, use cut-out again with the same settings as before

Invert and used the clone brush again to fill the border area. Select none

Image> add borders 2 colour black

Image> add border 20 colour any but black

With magic wand select the border, flood fill with gradient, invert, use cut-out as before

Invert and use the clone brush again to fill the border area, do not deselect

Effect>3d effects>inner bevel with the following settings

Bevel 2, width 12, smoothness 16, depth 4, ambience 0, shininess 0, colour white, angle 315, intensity 50, elevation 30

Invert and inner bevel with the same settings, do cut-out for the last time, and select none

Add your text now and your watermark

Resize and sharpen once and save... If you wish to animate or add sparkles now is the time to do so

You’re done ... Thanks for trying this tutorial... Hope you enjoy
