Click on image to see larger version
You will need:

A nice tube - I used one from Karen Sweetland.
You have to be a registered member of My Tag Art
to puirchase the tubes, but any nice tube will do.
Scrap kit called "Kimberley" from FantasyMoments-Scraps
Font called Aquarelle - I have in my supplies
But you can use any nice scripty font.
Plugin Filters:
Funhouse-Ring Tile
If you don't have the Funhouse filters
you can get both here:- HERE
Scroll down the Free Filters till you see Funhouse 1&2.
DSB-Flux-Bright Noise
Animation Shop

New white canvas 800x800

we will re-size this down before the Animation

Copy & paste one of the Frame elements from scrap kit. Resize it
85% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.

Magic wand - click inside the frame - Selections-Modify-Expand 6.
Copy & paste one of the Papers from scrap kit as a new layer. Selections-
Invert - hit delete. Slections-None. Move the Paper layer below Frame layer.
Give the Frame this drop shadow

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer. You may have to resize the tube to sit in the
frame nicely. If any of the tube is sticking below the frame, erase it.
Give your tube this drop shadow - I used very light grey for the colour

Copy & paste any of the Elements you like to add to the frame.
Give them the 1st drop shadow.

When you have completed adding the Elements (don't add the butterflies yet), cross
out the eyes on the bottom layer (white) - Merge Visible all other layers.
Uncross the eyes on bottom layer - make Merged Layer active - duplicate - on original
merged layer - Adjust - Blur- Gaussian Blur 35.
Plugin Filters-Funhouse-Ring Tile with default settings. Resize the Blurred layer 95% Bicubic-
all layers unchecked.

Make top layer active - Merge Down.
Now we can add the Butterflies. Copy & paste one of the Butterflies from scrap kit. Resize 40%
Bicubic-all layers unchecked. Adjust-Sharpen More - give 1st drop shadow. Make top layer Butterfly active,
Merge Down.
You should have 3 layers on your layer palette.
Duplicate the Merged Butterflies 3 times to give you 4 layers. Cross out the eyes on top 3 layers
making bottom Butterfly layer active - DSB Flux-Bright Noise with these settings

2nd Butterfly layer - click Mix 2 times - 3rd Butterfly layer, click Mix 3 times - 4th Butterfly layer,
click Mix 4 times.

Add your name & correct copyright. Crop Tool - crop around to remove excess white background. I resized
mine 80% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED.


Cross out all the buttfly layers excepot the bottom one, make that layer active - Copy Merged.
Animation Shop - Paste As A New Animation. Back to your PSP, cross out the eys on that layer, uncross
the eyes on next Butterfly layer, make it active - Copy Merged - AS - Paste After Currant Frame.
Back to your PSP, continue this for the other 2 layers of the Butterfies.
You should have 4 frames in your Animation Shop.
