Supplies Needed

PSP- I used X but will work in any version
1 Tube of Choice
Font of choice
Supplies here

I used the Artwork of Andy Screen
You will need to purchase a license to use his work and can be purchased from MPT

Okay let's get started

Open a new image 600x600 (we can resize later)
Open your tube, the mask and the circle.
Open any extra embellishments and ribbons of choice if you would like to use them.

Layers, new raster layer floodfill with white.
Layers, new raster layer floodfill with a colour of choice from your tube.
Layers, new Mask layer, from Image, and find ww-border23j,
Source luminance, checked, Invert mask Data, checked, OK
Merge group, and resize by 80%.

Edit copy, Edit paste the circle as new layer, place this layer under the mask layer.
With the mask layer highlighted, use your pick tool and expand the mask layer slightly,
so it just touches the outside of the circle.
(see tag for reference)

Edit copy, Edit paste your tube as a new layer.
Resize to suit. Add a drop shadow.
Edit copy, edit paste the bubbles as a new layer and position were needed.

Layers, New raster layer, using your eclipse tool draw out a circle to the size of the bubble ring.
It dosen�t matter at this point what colour it is as we will delete it latter.
Move this down to the bottom, and again use your pick tool to make it the same size as the bubble mask.
Layers, New Raster layer, Using the text tool, write out some words just on the edge of the new circle layer.
You will see the text tool change to a semi circle. Once completed, you can delete the extra circle layer.

At this point you may fish the tag or read on for animation.

Now to animate.
Now with your bubble mask layer highlighted, duplicate this layer.
You can just use it this way or you can colourize this layer, its up to you.

Now is the time to add any flowers, embellishments, ribbons, brushes etc.

Add all appropriate © information, and your name.

Cross out the duplicated bubble mask layer.
Edit, copy merged all other layers, and in Animation Shop paste as new layer.
Back in PSP uncross the duplicate layer and edit, copy merged all layers,
In Animation Shop paste after current frame.
That�s it, all done.

Once happy with your creation
Resize all layers to your liking and your done.
