  • Open element 22 bring to top resize by 75% place so that stars are across bottom and up left side of tube.
  • Now with your duplicated layer of element 44 bring to top. Erase parts of the bells that are across tubes face and torso.

For my name I used the Kikelet Font size 60 color: top: #731AA8 bottom: E5C6F2 gradient setting Radial Angle 349 Repeat 10.

Once you have your name where you like it apply Eye Candy 5 Impact Gradient Glow with these Settings:
Inside Glow; 5 5 100 0 100 100 Colors: E5C6F2 FFFFFF 731AA8
Adjust Sharpen Unsharp mask 3 30 3 Apply D/S 2 2 95 1.98
Resize if you like. After resizing add your license number and artist copyright to tag. Either delete or close the bottom white layer.
Export PNG Optimizer.

    I got these settings from a tutorial written by Designs by Vaybs. This is her setting which I use all the time, it really makes your text pop.
        Her original setting are in black and white but it is easy to use your own color combination. I would caution though that your top color be darker, as it does not look well with a lighter color as the top color. I tried to find the link to her original settings on her website but didn't.

I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and thank you for giving it a go, Marie
