Flood Fill canvas with your Foreground color ... Rename this layer BG

Layers> New Raster Layer ... Flood Fill this layer with your Background color ... Rename this layer FG

Paste your Tube as a New Layer and position on the left side of your Tag but not all the way

(look at my Tag for example)

Make a Selection from the Right side to the Left to about half way across your Tube like so
