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 strips Image Canvas Size 650x600 and floodfill with white, we can resize later but I like enought room to work.
Circle 1 : Select all/flaot/defloat open paper 18 c/p resize bu 70% arrange invert/delete/deselect and add a inner bevel of choice and delete template layer add d/s.
Repeat the same steps for Circle 2.
Back Right Rectangle : Select all/float/deflaot open paper 13 c/p resize 70% arrange invert/delete/deselect add same inner bevel you used previous and delete template layer add d/s.
Repeat the same steps for Back Left Rectangle.

Oval : Select all/float/defloat open paper 12 c/p resize 85% invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Top Rectangle : Select all/float/defloat new layer choose a color from your kit I used #ffccdf floodfill then open your tube I used the middle layer c/p as a new image mirror and c/p to your tag arrange invert/delete. apply Xero-Porcelian default settings then change the blaend mode to Overlay and duplicate.
Now move back to the template layer Select all/float/defloat expand by 3 new layer and floodfill with white and add the same noise as you used previous deselect and delete template layer and add d/s.
Repeat the same steps for the Bottom rectangle.
Open main tube c/p arrange duplicate Guassian Blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Soft Light add d/s to original tube layer.
