Re-size by 85%.
Make your canvas large enough to work with.

If your mask is too small then resize it so it is larger.
I re-sized mine by 130%.
Adjust add/remove noise and add noise at 70% uniform and monochrome.
Add a slight drop shadow to the mask layer to help it pop a little.
Open your tube at this time and copy and paste as a new layer.
Re-size as needed and position on your tag canvas.
Duplicate your tube 2x so there are a total of 3 layers of the tube.
On the bottom layer adjust blur gaussian blur of 20.
Then apply the DSB Flux Linear Transmission with the following settings:
On the top layer adjust blur gaussian blur at 10.00.
Lower the opacity to 50.
On the middle layer apply a drop shadow of your choice.
Now lets dress it up from some of the great elements from the kit.
