Not all kits are same sizes.
So if you choose another kit, your re-sizing may be different..
Not all elements are the same size either..

Okay Lets Start
Please NOTE as I will not repeat in each step
Once set your drop shadow will stay
Always Close original image after you copy.
Always sharpen once after your re-size

1. Open your mask and tube minimize for now. Open the word art brush. Install the word art brush into your brushes by clicking on File Export Custom brush.

2. Open a new transparent 700x500 Flood Fill with paper of your choice. I used #5.

5. Copy you tube close Paste into your image as new layer. Re-size as needed. Apply Drop Shadow settings below.
6. Open a Paper to use for your font Select a fat font I am using AS Happy Jack. I re-sized my paper to 900 then scaled it to 50% so it would look better. Type out your font.

7. Effects/plugins/eye candy 4000 bevel boss see settings below.8. Add a new raster layer below your text layer

9. Highlight your Font Layer Selections/select all, float, defloat, modify expand 3. Now click back on layer below your tube and flood fill with a color that will make the text stand out I used white. Selections/select none. Apply same drop shadow as before.
