any resemblance to other works in entirely conincidental

Open blank canvas 700 x 200

drag under 3rd duplicate, lower opacity to 36, position to the right slightly
Merge all tube layers
position so the smallest one is against the right hand side of your tag

new raster layer, floodfill white
layers arrange, send to bottom

preset shape tool, rectangle, background colour one from your tube
draw out a slim rectangle from left to right right across canvas
convert to raster layer, position towards top of tag
duplicate x 2 and position one in the middle of the tag and one toward the bottom
so you have 3 thick stripes across your tag
merge the 3 stripes together

add noise, random, 46, monochrome checked
