Click Ok.
Now in your layers pallet click on the top layer in your pallet, then open your tube of choice, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Then re-size it to 50%. (this size is for the tube i used, if you are not using the same tube your size may need to be altered.)

Then I apply the same gradient glow as I did for my main name.

Now once you have everything where you want it & like it. Go to your layers pallet, right click on any layer, then click Merge. Then from the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your crop tool & crop off any access canvas that we did not use.

Now you may or may not want to re-size your tag. If you do now is the time to do that.
