This tutorial is fairly involved - so you will need a bit of time to
do it. Have a cuppa beside you. Remember to save often

You will need:

Tube - I used one of Francien van Westering's lovely kittens
Visit her site HERE
But any tube will do.
My 'Too Cute' Template & BeckyMask 038
HERE
Font I used is called 'LamboHmk Bold'
HERE


Open up my 'TooCute' template - click Shift D to copy it. You can now
close off the original one.
Delete my TOU - make bottom layer (white) active, go to Image-Canvas Size
with these settings



Open up & minimize BeckyMask 038

Keeping the bottom layer active - add a new Raster Layer. Select 2 colours
from your tube as Light/Foreground - Dark/Background - Flood Fill with Gradient
with these settings



New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings



Merge Group.
Freehand Selection Tool - draw around Fat Rectangle
With your Mask layer active - add a New Raster Layer - flood fill with the
light colour from your tube. Effects-Texture Effects-Textures - choose a nice
texture, click OK. Selections-None.

Make Rectangle-1 layer active - Magic Wand, click the rectangle - New Raster Layer,
flood fill with your gradient. Selections-None. Effects-3D Effects-Inner Bevel with
these settings


Give new rectangle this drop shadow



Delete original rectangle. Continue this for the next 2 Rectangles, remembering new Raster
Layer each time, as well as Inner Bevel & drop shadow.

Copy & paste your tube as a new layer. Position within the Fat Rectangle. Give drop shadow.
Add your name & correct copyright.

Make sure the merged rectangle layer is active - copy - Animation Shop - Paste as a New Animation

I have set Wave 1 to X-5 and Y 3 and Wave 2 to X3 and Y5 / click OK
You should have 15 Frames - delete the last frame. Go to Edit-Select All.

Back to your PSP - Cross out the eyes on all layers except the Background, Mask & coloured layers,
Copy Merged - AS - Paste as a New Animation. Go to Edit-Copy - click 13 times holding down your Ctrl & L keys
to give you 14 frames. (You will see the numbers on the lower right in your Animation Shop).
Edit-Select All - Back to your Animated Rectangles, click on top blue bar - Copy, back to mask frames, Paste Into
