Dark Elf forum set

This tutorial was written by Mizteeque on 6th January 2015
written in psp9 but any version should work
Any resemblance to any other works is purely coincidental and unintentional

Supplies Needed:

Tube of choice I used the stunning artwork of  No Flutter
My Supplies HERE
Font of choice - I used Nightmare5
Filters:  Distort & Eye Candy 4 - Gradient Glow (both can be found HERE)
Muras Meister - Copies
OK lets begin!!

Note:  c/p = copy and paste as new layer
d/s = dropshadow 2,5,50, 8 black

Open blank canvas 750 x 250

c/p tube
muras - copies, wallpaper rotate, default settings

effects, distort, wave, default settings

adjust, blur, motion blur
angle 45, strength 100

on duplicate
effects, distortion effects, wave
following settings

using your freehand selection tool
make a random selection zig zagging across your tag
like my screenshot below

selections, invert
hit delete on your keyboard
Keep selected

c/p tube again a few times
and arrange inside the selection to your liking
then hit delete on each tube layer

Merge tube layers together
change blend mode to difference

hide bottom layer
merge visible 
unhide bottom layer

on shape layer
effects, eye candy 4, gradient glow
black halo, glow width 5

repeat gradient glow
but this time use Fat white settings
glow width 3

make bottom layer active
preset shapes, rectangle, using a fore/back gradient
made from two colours from your tag, draw out a 
rectangle from one side of your tag to the other
convert to raster, 
effects, penta.com, jeans, amount 62, width 7
change blend mode to overlay
Tag should now look something like this

make shape layer active
c/p some greenery as new layer, move to left
duplicate, image mirror & flip
change blend modes to what looks to you
I used multiply on one and luminance (legacy) on the other

c/p sparkles as new layer, move to left
duplicate, image, mirror

c/p tube as new layer

New raster layer
floodfill with gradient we used earlier
select all, contract by 2
hit delete

You can leave the border as is or change the blend mode
to something you like, or add noise, its entirely upto you.

add copyright & name
merge all flatten

Save as jpg.
