..:: IMPORTANT TIPS*
To create the Dotted lines with the PEN TOOL
just click in the area where you want to start a line
and drag the mouse to the area where you want this to finish.
You gotta repeat this step for every line you draw,
every single line needs a start and an end point.
The lines will be created as VECTOR LAYERS
once you have what you want
CONVERT this vector layer into a RASTER LAYER.
I would recommend to create a new Vector layer for each group of lines.
In my case I had 3 vector layers , one vector for each of :
-Lines around the grey gradient square,
-Lines around the tag connecting the ribbon,
-Zig zag lines in the right side of the tag.
