For this tutorial you will need Kang 1 New Facets and Eye Candy 4000 HSB Noise.  Note: Although I have used a Halloween-ish tube, this is not a Halloween tutorial, unless you want it to be .

For my tag I altered the way I made the rectangular selection because this tube has a straight edge so I kind of adapted to that.  I allowed two of the other sides of the tube to hang out and I cut the last side off to sort of make it look like she was flying out of the frame .

For the drop shadow part of the tutorial, I opted for using the kang background (minus the 6 pixel border) as a fill rather than a solid color.  I just mirrored the pattern and then pasted it into the selection that I created of the combined drop shadows.

For the HSB part of the tut, I altered the settings a bit to make the lumps a bit larger and to give it some more color.  The size of the lumps in the tut is kinda small and I wasn't able to see it very clearly so it sort of looked like mush to me (my regular eyeglasses broke some time ago so I'm wearing a really old pair and things are a little blurry lol).  After applying the HSB, the lumps were running in a vertical direction.  I got the idea to run them horizontally to sort of look like the tube was flying, so I had to rotate the shadow layer 90 degrees to the right, then apply the HSB, and then rotate the shadow back to the left .  It was a bit more work, but I think the effect is nice.
*Edit: I hadn't noticed that my lump width was less than my lump height.  This is why the lumps ran vertically.  Instead of all the rotating that I did, I should have used the lesser number for the height and the larger number for the width.  That simple change would have given the same horizontal appearance of the HSB noise.*
And in going with the witch theme of the tag I added "tha" to the end of my name in homage to Tabitha the Witch .  The font used for my text is Bank Gothic Medium.

Have fun with this one; I can't wait to see your results.

I love all the explanations! I will start doing that as well.

The information is invaluable. Timbertha? is that your real name?

Have a bewitching night. JJ

I'm glad that you are enjoying the explanations, JJ. I feel it's a great way to share information and techniques with others who are looking to try something different. I look forward to seeing your "what I did on this tag" information when you post your results!

LOL No. My real name is not timber; it's something really boring and dull (at least it is to me, no offense to anyone with the same name ). I put timbertha on the tag as a play on the name Tabitha, who is Samantha's daughter on the 1960s TV show, Bewitched. My hubby watches that show quite a bit lol.

I was inspired to do this tut again using another Halloween tube from my collection.

For this tag, I've used Xero Fritillary for the animation which I think looks very close to the HSB Noise settings from the tutorial. For myself, I prefer the sharper lines on the Fritillary for this particular tag.

For my text, I have used Calvin and Hobbes font. My name is created the same as the phrase above the tag but for my name I have changed the blend mode to Luminance (Legacy).

I've been playing with a technique for doing my text that I must like because I've been doing in on the last handful of tags that I've made. I like the dimension that it creates. It kind of gives the look of a drop shadow but it's not a drop shadow. I could go into more detail about that if anyone wanted to know more.
