Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer Unless otherwise stated
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated
And see my finished tag for placement
*Let's Get Started*
Open template duplicate close original delete credits and pink rectangle, Image Canvas Size 800x675 and floodfill your background with white. we can resize later but I like enought room to work.
Right Rectangle : Select all/float/defloat open paper 3 c/p resize by 70% arrange invert/delete/deselect add a slight inner bevel and d/s then delete template layer.
Repeat same steps for Left Rectangle.
