Artwork by by ©Marika at CDO

Template
#30 by Dee

Filters
Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow
Filters Unlimited (FU)- Paper Textures

and any other filters of choice

...........................................................


Okay, let's get started
Remember to save often!!!

Open template and shift D
Close original and re-size canvas to 800 x 800
Crop after tag is done
Fill bg layer in with white

Delete info layer


There are a few basic steps for this template that are repetitive.
1. Select layer
2. Float
3. Add new layer
4. Fill with color of choice
5. Apply filter of choice
6. Apply gradient glow  and noise at 50 to original layer

Go HERE if you aren't familiar on my way of adding gradient glow using EC 5 Impact 


We are going to start at the bottom layer (in layers pallet)
and work our way up the template following the steps above.


Use my tag as guide if needed

pink oval - #ed79a1
large blue circle - gradient of #e8fcfd & #93bfd4 on radial style + bubbles
black rectangles - #fce18a + mirrored tube + duplicate tube (overlay)
left pink circle - gradient of #f6c770 & #f8da9a on sunburst style
left blue small circle - #93bfd4
right pink circle - gradient of #cef9c2 & #d4facb on sunburst style
right blue small circle - #f2679f
black outline circles - gradient of #fbe9b9 & #cdf9c0
life is better text - #ed79a1 + noise + I separated mine to place apart 
flip flop text - gradient of all the colors used + noise

Paste tube

Add name
I did name in gradient and in white and just moved white to right like flip flop text is and added noise

Using splatter brushes of choice and gradient you made
add new layer and brush around tag edges
Move to bottom

Close bg layer

Add drop shadow to layers
