Girls Best Friend

This seems like a long tutorial but its very graphic intense

You will need my supplies HERE
DC special filter HERE
I'm using font Halo from HERE

Open a new canvas 385 x 385 transparent
Flood fill with cmv_1062 gradient
Image/ picture frame, choose frame 13
Duplicate frame layer, Image resize to 75
Using your raster deform tool
Move the sides out a little and move the whole thing up a little, like this

Hight first frame layer, Add a drop shadow, these settings

Highlight middle frame, add a drop shadow, same as before
Highlight first frame again,
With selection too, draw a rectangle through frame, like this

New layer/ flood fill with gradient again
Effects/3D efects/ inner bevel, these settings

Effects/plugins/DC special/ crystal, these settings

Ajust/brightness and contract by, brightness 12--contrast 0
Highlight your top layer (copy of picture frame)
Copy/paste the corner as a new layer, put in place
Duplcate this layer, Image/mirror
Copy/paste Anniebel tube as a new layer, put in place
Add a drop shadow, these settings

Copy/paste Anniebel hand as a new layer, add a drop shadow, these settings

New layer, Add copyright
We are nearly done for this part of tutorial, But, before we merge
Copy paste dangler top to make sure the hand is in the right place,you need to have room for the heart,

If it looks right,Zoom in on your canvas and with lasso tool,draw around the ring, hit delete to remove the part of ring, like this

Select none, Merge visable, re-name background

Part Two
Copy/ paste your heart as a new layer, put in place, re-name Heart
Duplicate heart layer, Image/rotate/left 75

With mover tool, move it so it sits like this

Duplicate this layer, Image/rotate/right 30, put into place
This is what we have

Hide both copies

We will be saving as we are going now
This is very repetative
New layer, call this delete text

Its only there to show you where to place text
Click on text tool, I'm using Halo Caps-Size 48-Stroke #e9d491, fill diamond
Type in your name and put in place

Hide all layers except background and heart, highight background
Merge visable, File save as 1 psp image
Hit undo arrow
(repeat from here)
New layer, type first letter of your name so it sits under the heart
You will only see marching ants, but you can still move it central
Remember you can always hide the heart to check it
Select none,
Hide all layers except background,copy of heart and first letter of name
Merge visable, save as 2 psp image, Hit undo arrow
Hide copy of heart, unhide copy 2 of heart
Merge visable, save as 3 psp image, Hit undo arrow
Unhide delete text layer, move first letter of name so it sits on top of (in my case) 'J'
Hide delete text layer,hide copy 2 of heart, unhide heart
Merge visable, save as 4 psp image, hit undo arrow
(repeat to here)
Don't unhide any letters of your name
Keep repeating these steps until you have all your name there

Open Animation Shop
File/Animation Wizard, follow prompts and add all images in order
Click on first frame, hold Ctrl down and hit A to highlight all
Set speed to 30
Click on first frame again so its the only one highlighted
Set speed to 100
Click on last frame and set speed to 250
Click on first frame again, hold Ctrl down and hit A to highlight all
Save as a gif image
