I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions.

Supplies needed:
A tube of choice.  Im using one by Heather Martin, which I received while she was at MPT. 
I do not know where she is now selling, if she still is.  Please do not use unless you have the appropriate license number and/or permission.
Font of choice.  I've used A&S Speedway.

Muras Meister Copies

Eye Candy Impact Gradient Glow (optional)

1.  Open a new transparent image 600 x 250 pixels

2.  Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

3.  Apply Mura Meister Copies with the following settings:

4.  Adjust Blur Motion Blur settings at 45 degrees and 95%

5.  Effects Texture Effects Mosaic Glass with the following settings:

6.  Crop your tag to 600x250 pixels

7.  Apply Simple 4 Way Average

8.  Apply AAA Frames Foto Frame with the following settings:

9.  Paste your tube as a new layer and move it to the right of your canvas. 
Add a drop shadow of choice (Ive used 2, 2, 80, 15). 

10.  Add a new raster layer.  Selections Select All.  Selections Modify Contract by 5.  Selections Invert. 
Floodfill with colour of choice (Ive used black).  Add a drop shadow of choice (Ive used 2, 2, 58, 5 then -2, -2, 58,5)

11.  Add your name, applying Gradient Glow if necessary.  Add a drop shadow of choice.

And youre done :)
