PostHeaderIcon Rockstar Dream

I made this tag using the artwork of Robin McQuay
you must have a license to use her work, available at DSI
I used a FTU cute kit from Alika's Scrap available on her blog HERE
Font AL Sandra HERE

Open your frame as18.png and resize 80%
With the magic wand select inside the frame. 
Expand by 4.
The tube I used fully filled the frame but if yours doesnt
take a paper of your choice, paste as a new layer, invert selection and hit delete
to remove the excess outside of the frame. Move paper below the frame layer.
Follow the same steps above to add your tube.
Add a nice drop shadow to the frame.

Copy and paste as27.png below the tube or paper, resizing by 80%, add drop shadow
Open as14.png, copy and paste above the glitter, resize 80%, duplicate and mirror.
Add drop shadow
Then add elements of your choice, resizing and sharpening as necessary.
I used as65, as04, as02, as09, as24 and as05
Dont forget your shadows as they really 'lift' the elements.

Once happy with the tag merge visible and resize if necessary. If you do resize don't forget to sharpen afterwards. I used sharpen > unsharp mask > radius 20, strength 20 and clipping 5 but you might find other settings that work for you.

Add your copright information and text.
I used AL Sandra and wrote out the name, angled it, added a drop shadow 
then eye candy 4000, gradient glow with a width of 3 and then repeated using the same setting.

And thats it, done! Save as a PNG or JPG if you prefer and don't want a transparent background.
