Let's get started
*Remember to add your drop shadow as you go along*

Open your template, hold the shift key and hit the letter d to duplicate,
close the original, delete the credits.

Add a new raster layer, move to the bottom, fill with #ad0312, apply your mask,
delete and merge group.

Resize Burst 2 to 50%, paste on the upper left, below the mask layer, duplicate, mirror, duplicate, move down on the right more, duplicate again, mirror,
adjust to your liking.

Being above the mask now, paste the Star 2 scatter.

Select layer 1 of the template, paste paper 1, invert, delete, sharpen twice, delete
the template layer.

Select layer 2, paste the Burst, move to where just some of the lines are showing,
invert, delete, select none, duplicate, mirror.

Merge layer 4 down with layer 3, select all, float, defloat, paste your close up tube,
invert, delete, select none, duplicate the tube and mirror, merge down.
Duplicate the tube, apply the xero filter- Soft Mood, then go to Adjust, Blur, Gaussian blur at 4, change the blend mode to overlay or one you like, merge down. Then apply the xero filter-Clarity first, then Soft Vignette,
Foreground color
Diagonal Dots

Merge layer 6 down with layer 5, just add a drop shadow on this.
Layer 7 apply the filter Photo Effex-Scanlines
1, 2, 20, 10

Layer 8 leave as is and add a drop shadow.
Layer 9, paste Star 1 in the center.

Merge layer 11 down with layer 10, select all, float, defloat, paste paper 1, invert, delete, then paste your tube, delete, select none.
Duplicate the tube, mirror, merge these 2 tubes together, then
apply the xero filter-Porcelain and change the blend mode to
Luminance (L)

Merge layer 13 down with 12, add noise at 50%.
Merge layer 15 down with 14, add more noise if you like.
Delete layer 16, and merge 18 down with 17 and add noise again at 50%.

Paste your tube, resize to 85%, if using the same one I am and paste in the center.

Move the wordart USA to the left and the small wordart to the left but above the tube layer and on her boots some.
Apply Eye Candy4000-Gradient Glow with the fat glow and the first color on blue and the other color on red.

Resize the chain to 75%,  mirror and place on the left side.
Resize ribbon 1 to 40%, place on the chain part on the left, duplicate, move over to the right and down some on the right. Duplicate the chain again, resize to 75%,
mirror, move over to the right below the ribbon.

Resize the firecracker to 60%, place on the right, duplicate, resize again to 60% and move down a little bit.

Resize ribbon 3 to 25%, place between the wordarts and adjust to your liking.

Add any other elements that you would like.

Once happy, close off your background if you used one, merge visible
Resize first, then add copyright and name.

That's it
Hope you enjoyed doing my tut.
