Okay, let's get started.

Select none
Add noise at 20 or so

Go back to original white layer with lines
Click Delete
Flood fill with white again

Add new layer
Using a brush of choice add splotches of colors from tube around layer
This layer should be under the lines layer but if not move below

Paste tube of choice
Resize to choice

Paste tube again and mirror
Move one to one side and the other to other side
Merge together and lower opacity to desired look
Using eraser tool set to 11 opacity
Erase parts of tube on both sides
So on mine - on the left I erased the bear and on the right I erased the girl

Add drop shadow to tube layer
