You will need PsP, Tube and font of choice. My Mask

I am using a tube from my Joe Pekar Gild License Package.
 

Let's Begin.
Open my mask and your tube of choice in PsP.
File, new, 400x400 transparent image.
Choose 2 colors from your tube. Darker for the foreground and lighter for the background.
Click on your flood fill tool. Gradient, scroll to find your foreground/background gradient you just made.
Then click on the Sunburst box.
Flood fill raster 1 with your gradient.
Layer, new mask layer, new from image.
Using the arrow key select "reflectionscafesexmask" .Having only the "source luminance" Checked off.
Click ok.
Layer, delete, yes to the popup window. Right click on raster 1, merge , merge group.
Effects, 3d effects, drop shadow. V3 H3, Opacity 49 Blur 4.5.
Use the darker that you used as your foreground color earlier.
Click on your tube and copy and paste as a new layer onto our canvas.
Effects, 3d effects, drop shadow. V3 H3, Opacity 49 Blur 4.5.
Choose 2 colors for your text. Try adding another color that you havent' used already.
I have used the font a's bloody pen, not a free font sorry. Grab your text tool with these settings.

Add your text as you would like. Right click on vector 1 once happy and convert to raster.
Effects, 3d effects, drop shadow. V3 H3, Opacity 49 Blur 4.5.
Add your artists credits . If you are happy with your tag , file , export jpg optimizer and save. If you would like
to add a little more to your tag ....
I wanted my tag to have a little more so i added some "X's and O's in the same font i used for my text only bigger lol, as accents using the same color from my text. I lowered the opacity of my accent layers. I then ran my tag through the jpg optimizer and saved.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.
