You will need an Elegant Font, I'm using Olde English Gothic
Also a tube if you wish to add one

Open a new canvas 450 x 300 white
Add a new layer, Click on text Tool
On Materials choose colour and pattern you are going to use
I'm using 5a5097 for forground and blue pattern fill for background
Have your stroke width set at three
If your using a finer font, Have the stoke width at 2
I have my font set to 90,
once again it may be different if using different font
Write your name

Selection / Modify / Contract, When the box comes up
Contract to one more than your stroke width was
I'll contract mine by 4

Effects / 3D effects / Inner Bevel. These settings

Selections / Select None
If you are adding a tube, now is the time to do it
Copy / paste your tube as a new layer.

Hide your white background, and merge visable the other two layers.
Duplicate this layer 3 times
Unhide white background.
Hide the top 3 layers and highlight Merged layer

Click on your Tube tool and find a sparkle you like
I'm using TJ White at size 15
I prefer a white background, If you do too, then
Duplicate the white background 3 times.
Hide all layers Except Raster 1 and merged
Layers Merge / Merge Visable
Hide that layer
Unhide and highlight copy of raster and Copy of Merged
Repeat with other layers
Unhide / highlight bottom layer, hide other layers.
With tube tool add small sparkles in each letter
( remember, there are 3 other layers to do so don't overdo it )
Hide bottom layer, unhide / highlight next layer, add sparkles, repeat with next two layers
Unhide All Layers, Save to a folder as a psp image
Open Animation Shop
File / Open
