this is now a fanamation lol you can use it in nay tag you create
I would save it as a .mng for later use as you can always change the colours


Following are the steps I took to make this tag
it is my own tag and I followed no one's direction
any resemblance to someone else's is by purest chance

Supplies needed

open a 488 x 356, 72 dpi, transparent background
new layer
open a tube of your choice
I am using the Fantastic Art of
Charles Bristow
He is a PTU Artist

Dropper tool choose 2 colours from your tube
for your materials
1 foreground and 1 background
Copy your tube and close it
 Ctrl+L 3 times to your new image close the top 2 copies
on the original layer apply PSP Filter adjust - blur - Gaussian 67
Effect - MuRa's Meister filter - Copies - wallpaper rotate
play with these settings until you like the preview
open your top image and position it toward the top and off to one side of your tag
open next layer and Image, mirror, reduce opacity to 50

return to wallpaper layer
select modify contract 20
using your move tool move top image to inside selection
