Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
I am using a tube by Ismael Rac
which you can purchase at his

Tube of choice.
Texture of choice.
I am using some Punk Rose
which you can find
Plugin VM Texture

Open a 600x250 new image.
Open up your tube and texture

Click on your new image with
your magic wand tool.
Copy & paste your texture
of choice as a new layer.
Selections invert & press delete.

On your tube, Resize 80%
if needed. Copy & paste
as a new layer.
Now press delete.
Select none.

Move the tube to the side of
the tag. Duplicate this layer
once. Mirror the tube copy layer.

Move the copy layer under the
original tube in your layer
palette. Lower the opacity
to about 30.

Now back on the texture layer,
apply plugin
VM Texture -Tiles a Go Go
Default settings

X out the two tube layers
to hide the layers for now.

While still on the texture layer,
use your selection tool
to select different columns of
the texture. I did every other column.

Once selected as you want,
Right click on your layer palette
& promote selection to layer.

add noise -uniform & 20
Then add a drop shadow to
the same layer.
2,2,50,5 Black

Un'x the tube layers.
Move the 2nd tube layer
under the noise columns.

Choose a font of choice.
I suggest using one easily
read. Size 18 or bigger.

Choose two different colors
from your tag for the font.
Caps lock on.

Type out two different words
for your tag. Rotate Left 90
each word.
Position the words along
two of the noise columns.

Add the earlier drop shadow
to the two text layers just added.
