Tramages Tow The Line

The tube I used Betty (57-1) is by cuddly Rigor Mortis, you can purchase this tube from CDO here

The name of my font is Tamborine
I used size 48 for my text before resizing
I used size 60 for my name after resizing

Open new transparent canvas 700x700, we will resize later
Floodfill with a color of your choice
Apply tramages tow the line using default settings

Paste your tube as a new layer
Add a drop shadow

Activate your elipse shape tool, change mode to circle, width 20, foreground null
Pick a darker shade of your color
Draw a circle around your tube
Resize if needed
Align center
Add inner bevel

Move your color to the background & pick a lighter shade for your foreground
Activate your foreground gradient, radial, angle 45, repeats 60
Activate your magic wand & click inside your circle
Expand 3
Add a new raster layer & floodfill
Move to below your tube layer
Do Not Deselect

Activate your tube layer
Invert your selection
Delete & deselect

Add a drop shadow to your circle

Activate your circle tool again, select a contrasting color, width 1, background null
Align center

Add a new vector layer
Activate your text tool
Hover your text tool over the top of the circle, left click when you see the little A
Write out your text
I used size 48 & had to add 4 spaces in between each phrase

Go back to your circle background layer
Duplicate & rotate right 30
Duplicate & rotate right 30
Repeat this until you have a total of 6

Resize all layers to 70%

After resizing I repasted my tube, resized to 90% and did the selection inside the frame, inverted then deleted & deselected
I did this because I didn't like the way the cow looked & I wanted her to look bigger
