X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used a width of 550).

I used 2 Peas Airplane, Size 48, Color #94cb3f to type out "Beauty". I then added a noise effect .. adjust/add remove noise/uniform monochrome checked/50% followed by the same glass effect as earlier but changing the bevel width to 15. I then added a size 3 fat white gradient glow & drop shadow.

Add copyright and name on your tag. I have used Waterbrush ROB, Size 60, color #eebc4f and then added the same gradient glow & drop shadow as on the word art.

Save and you are done.
