A Touch Of Green
written 2/19/2015

Supplies Needed :
Tube of your choice; preferably one with a close up image. I am using the work of Ismael Rac. You can get his tubes at http://store.xeracx.net/

FTU scrap kit by Dreamland Designs. You can get it at http://dreamlanddesigns.blogspot.com/2013/03/stpaddys-day-2013-ftu-no-cu.html

Mask is by Rocked by Rachel. You can get it at https://rockedbyrachel.wordpress.com/2015/02/16/st-pattys-day-masks/
I am using mask #2 from this set.

Font of your choice. I am using Party Business. You can get it at http://www.dafont.com/party-business.font

Plugins:

Let's Begin:
Open paper 22 and shift+ D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Now re-size the paper to a size you will be happy with.
We will be adding a closeup of your tube and a mask to this paper.
Once you have it re-sized to your liking promote the background layer to a raster layer.
Image canvas size and make your canvas large enough to work with.
Open the close up of your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and center in the paper.
Change the properties of the tube layer to luminance legacy.
Merge the tube layer down to the paper layer.
Apply the mask.
Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Duplicate this layer.
Then merge the 2 layers together.
Add a drop shadow of
0 0 100 10.00 color green from the paper.
Open clovers element from the kit and re-size so they will fit nicely around your mask area where the clovers in the mask are. Both top and bottom sides.
Add a drop shadow to both using the same settings as you did before.
Open the full size of your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and place on the far right side of the tag.
Add a drop shadow.
Open the hat element from the kit.
Image re-size by 50%.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Image free rotate to the left 26 degrees.
Adjust sharpen.
Add a drop shadow.
Move to the middle left just at the bottom of the clovers.
Open the horseshoe element from the kit.
Re-size until it is nearly the size of the hat.
Adjust add/remove noise and add noise at 100 uniform and monochrome.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Image free rotate to the right 26 degrees.
Adjust sharpen.
Add a drop shadow.
Move over near the right of your hat and I erased bits to look like it was both behind and in front of the hat. This is completely up to you.
Open the glitter ribbon and copy and paste as a new layer and place along the bottom of your tag.
Add a drop shadow.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
