Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Open Fog-GI_DestructiveHeart and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70% and drag down until it’s just above the tube, place in position and erase any that shows at the bottom of the tag (make a temporary black base layer so you can be sure you get all of it).  I duplicated this, erased most of it and just put a little on my tube’s arm to cover the cut off edge there. 

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a png.
