Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Paste Smudge as a new layer and resize 65%, position towards the right at the bottom, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and move it up and to the left.

Paste the tube, resize 32%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste bushes, resize 80% and position behind the tube.

Paste Fence, resize 60%, duplicate, position behind the tube erasing the parts that overlap hiding the join behind the tube and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Pond, resize 60% and move to the left of the tube.

Paste Waterfall Pond, resize 50%, drag below Pond, place in position and erase the part of Pond that overlaps it.

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

Paste Grass, resize 60%, place in position on the right of the tube, duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position it on the left of the tube erasing the tall pieces to leave just the bottom part and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste Garden Lantern, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Dandilion, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Pussy Willow, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Dandilions, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste rose, resize 15%, duplicate,  mirror the duplicate and resize it another 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I re-coloured the second rose pink to match the roses on the tube.

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

Paste Flowers 3, resize 15% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Ducks, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Candle on the top,  resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Red Apple, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Strawberries, resize 13%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Snail, resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Check your layers now and make any adjustments. 

Paste Gravel, resize 75% and position below the two copies of the pond.

Paste the tube again and mirror it, select the top copy of the mask, float and defloat it, invert the selection, position the tube on the mask and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Dab around the hair on the tube with your eraser size 100 and opacity 10 to blend it in.

Paste Word art 1, resize 90% and place in position.   I changed the colour so it showed up more on my tag, to do this I made a new layer and filled it with yellow, I then selected the word art, floated and defloated it, inverted the selection and hit delete on the new colour layer.  Apply the drop shadow to the word art changing the vertical to 2 and blur to 5.    Duplicate the word art, drag the copy down below the tube and arrange the two copies so they wrap around the tube erasing the parts that overlap.

Add your text, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Monarch, resize 10%, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

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