16.  I then decided to take my "eraser tool" and clicked on my whispy grass layer on my layer palette to make it active and just erased some of the grass that was in front of the crow so he looked like he is peeking through the grass.

17.  "Edit - copy" then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your canvas your tube.  I centered my tube along the bottom middle of my frame.

18.  With your text tool type out - "Done Without A Drop Of Rum"
and place it along the top of the scroll frame above your tube.
(I used font "Edit Invitation 1" size 48)

19.  Go up to "Image - Free Rotate" and use the same settings as we have previously except change the "degree" to 10.

Add the artist copyright information and save as a jpg or png file
(If you'd like a transparent background click on the eye on your layer palette to the left of your bottom white layer to hide it then save your tag as a png file)

ALL DONE!!

**Note** My preview shows some "noise" added to my tag. If you'd like to do that as well and don't know how to add noise to a tag you can use the "DSB Flux Filter - Bright Noise". I have written a tutorial on how to use this filter if you'd like to try the tutorial to add the noise to your tag.

You can find the tutorial HERE

Animation really isn't necessary with this tag as it looks just as nice without ;)

Sample of tag saved as a png file below
