Crowe Halloween Collab #3 (K.I.T.)

Open 600x250 To aid in the creation of the tag, make your background white.

For the purpose of this tutorial, I will refer to the kit and tube I chose.

The kit I am using is part of Arthur Crowe's 2014 Halloween Collab by Hania's Design
This fantastic collab is available for $5.00. Go and grab one now!

Start by opening paper 05 and placing it on the canvas to your liking
or you can flood fill with a color of your choice.

Next open element 15 and c/p where you would like on the canvas.
Open element 24 and place in the center of the canvas. Lower the opacity to 50%

Now add element 13 and move to the left of your canvas. Duplicate and Mirror.
Lower the opacity to 50% on both sides.

Choose the close up of the tube you want to use.

I chose Colorful Halloween by Arthur Crowe. I purchased this tube from PTE which is no longer open.
Arthur has a wonderful website offering even more of his artwork. Visit his site at Arthur Crowe's Factory


Copy and paste your tube to the right of the canvas and position to your liking.
Duplicate the tube and mirror into a position of your liking.

Change the blend mode to Luminance (Legacy) and lower the opacity to 50%

For your border, add a new layer. Go to selections and choose select all.

Go to selections again, modify and contract by 5 pixels.

Invert and flood fill with the color of your choice. I used #cd338f. Select None.
Now go to Adjust - Add/Remove Noise - Add Noise

Noise 50% - Uniform Checked - Monochrome Checked

Once you are happy with the layout of your tag, SAVE!

Don't forget to add any last minute drop shadows if you wish!

Resize tag if you would like as well!

Add Copyright information, your license and your favorite font for the name!
The font I used is ZOMBIFIED

I usually save in .png but please save your final result in your chosen format.
