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 Raster layers 6 & 15, Image canvas Size 750x600 and floodfill the layer layer with white, we can resize later but I like enought room to work.
Raster 12 :
Select all float/defloat open paper 10 c/p arrange invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Shadow Layers :
We are leaving these as is on the template.
Raster 14,7,9 & 11:
Add noise Guassian/60/Monochrome checked then sharpen.
Raster 4 :
Select all/float/defloat open paper 4 c/p invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer add d/s.

Raster 8 :
Repeat same steps as you did for Raster 3, except i use paper 16 from the kit and change the blend mode on the tube to Screen.
