Clockwerk








In this tutorial I used the fabulous layered tube “Sad Sack”
from pack 73 from
I absolutely love this tube!
It can be purchased from

I used a kit called “The Werks” from

it is truly awesome!
The kit is available at

I used mask 0501 from

I used the font




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 95, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 x 750 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 8 into the selection, apply the mask with the “Invert mask data” box checked and resize 95%.

Paste element 9, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 65, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 38, resize 50%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 114, resize 60%, position on the left of the tube, duplicate, move the duplicate over so some shows on the right and erase the part that overlaps with the first copy, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 6, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 80, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste wordart 1, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 77b, resize 35%, place in position on the right of the tube and apply the drop shadow.

Paste spray 5, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 46, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste item 82, resize 20% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste item 44, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 on the top, resize 23% (or larger if your name is long), place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 78, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments. 

Paste element 45, resize 45%, drag right down to just above the mask, position on the left, duplicate and move the duplicate over to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open the font and type your name, foreground closed off, background any colour, use the vector nodes to resize in the plaque below the dragonfly and convert to a raster layer.  Select, float and defloat the text,  make a new layer, go to Effects – 3D Effects – Cutout,  apply using the settings in my screen shot below and delete the original text layer. 




When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and export on a transparent background as a png.
