Add the following to each layer:

Raster 10 – New raster layer, floodfill with #19191a. Artistic Effects, Halftone using the following settings:

On the gradient layer, select all, float, defloat. Selections, modify, set selection borders, both sides & anti-alias checked, border width 2. Add a new raster layer & floodfill with #fffe79. Deselect. Add noise using the same settings as before.

Now for your tube. Open the Girl & Skull, flip horizontal. Place over the gradient layer and arrange to your liking. On the gradient layer, select all, float, defloat. On the tube layer, selections, invert & press delete. Duplicate, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to screen, 48. On the original layer set the blend mode to luminance (L), 30.
