Now for the words! I'll try to make this make sense, lol
Choose your WhoopAss font and type what you want
I used my raster deform tool to stretch it out, but try to keep it in proportion
convert to raster layer, and rename "back"
selections>select all>float>defloat
selections>modify>select selection borders
inside/outside, width 4
add new raster layer, flood fill with color of choice
deselect and move below the "back" layer
add a fat, white gradient glow, width 3

Now open one of your tubes, and using your clone tool, right click
on the part of the tube you want showing in the letters
Back to your canvas, add a new raster layer, and still using your clone tool
"paint" the tube on your blank raster layer, where you want it to show up
Repeat that with the rest of the tubes and letters,
a new raster layer on your canvas for each tube
Once you have that all done, merge all the cloned tube layers together
Select you "back" layer
selections>select all>float>defloat
highlight the merged tube layers
hit delete on your keyboard

Duplicate your tube layer
On the bottom layer:
Xero>soft mood:
7, 50, 50, 50, 9, 0
On the top layer:
change blend mode to screen, opacity 80>jeans: 62, 4

Add any additional elements and text of your choice
Add drop shadows if you want

crop and resize your tag
add copyright and license info
merge, save, enjoy!
