Tube of choice - I am using the lovely work of Zindy Nielsen which you can purchase from her store
WSL_Mask25 by Chelle available from her blog
Fonts of choice - I am using Centime and Bickham Pro Regular

Layers / Merge / Merge Group
Select your Preset Shape Tool to Ellipse
Foreground - #000000
Background - null
Draw out a circle around your tag
Select your Text Tool and a font of your choice - I am using Centime
Choose a colour from your tag as your "background"
On the curve type out words of your choice - mine were "Fly to the Angels where Flowers bloom in your Name"
In your Layer Palette, open the Vector Layer and hide Ellipse
Convert to raster layer
I applied a Gradient Glow, but that is entirely optional
Change to a script font but retain the same colour for your text
Type out your name and aplly any effects and drop shadows of your choice
Finally, add your © copyright, licence and watermark
Then save as a GIF or JPG and you're done!
