Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice, I am using SkyScraps found at SATC
Screw or fastener of choice
My Supplies (word art) here
Eyecandy 4000 - HSB Noise
Penta.com - Dot and Cross

Open a new image 400 x 250, this is going to be the center of the tag.

Add a new layer, make a gradient out of two colors from the tube, flood fill this layer with the gradient.  Apply Eyecandy 4000 - HBS Noise, I used these settings:
Hue Variation - 8
Saturation Variation - 10
Brightness Variation - 11
Pattern - Smooth Fractal
All rest are left on default settings, you can always mess around with the settings for something else you may like. Apply Penta.com - Dot and Cross using these settings:
Amount - 72
Cross Distance - 10
Cross Width - 2

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, place in the center and to the right a little, apply a drop shadow and change the Blend Mode to Luminance (L). I lower the Opacity to 85.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, resize if needed. Apply a drop shadow. Place on the left hand side.

Okay, now open a new Image 600 x 250, add a new layer and flood fill with the same gradient only switch the two colors. Apply the same HSB Noise as you used earlier.

Go back to the image with the tube, copy MERGED. Paste as a new layer in the image that we just made.

Using the Selection tool draw out a small strip along the image with the tube, this should go from the top to the bottom. Add a new layer above the image with the tube, flood fill with the gradient. Apply a drop shadow to the strip. Repeat this for the right hand side as well.

Still using the Selection tool draw out a strip at the bottom of the tag, just big enough for the image with the tube. See my tag if needed, this is where the phrase/saying will be added. Add a new layer and flood fill again with the gradient, you may need to switch the colors. Apply a drop shadow. Move this layer below the two strips we made for the sides of the layer with the tube.

Copy and paste the screw/fastener as a new layer, place at the ends on top of the strips. Apply a drop shadow.

Add a saying of choice inside the strip at the bottom of the tag, I used Talking behind my back?  While you’re there… Apply a drop shadow or gradient glow.

Copy and paste the word art Kiss my ass as a new layer, place to the left of the image with the tube. Move this layer above the gradient. Duplicate and placed on the right hand side.

To add the frame, select the gradient, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat. Back to Selections - Modify - Select Selection - Borders and I used 5. Add a new layer above the others and flood fill once again with the gradient. To add the small white frame repeat the steps again this time use 5 and add a new layer below the gradient and flood fill with white. Apply a drop shadow to the white frame and merge the two frame layers.
