Hallow's Eve Goodies- Tutorial

The elements I used for this beautiful tag was from an awsome scrapkit I got from Digital Creations Shop and it is by NoShay Designs and you can get it here. Even though it is a shop it was one of their freebie downloads when I recievedt it. So login is required to get this one.
If you would just like the elements and template to this tag you may get it here.

The tube I used in this tag, is a Zindy Nielsen tube, you can purchase it and get a license here.

Tutorial
I am using Jasc Paint Pro Shop 9 and Jasc Animation Shop.
Open the template

Select the tube you wish to use, open it in a separate window, and resize it fit the tag accordingly. Copy it.

Then go Select the frame raster (raster 3) and click on it. Then "Edit--> Paste---> Paste Image as New Layer"

Select the Selection tool (freehand) and use the "Point to Point" option.
Select the top left inside corner of frame, to the lower inside corner of frame, to the lower part of tag, then back up to the to top left corner (this should make a box with the part of the tube you wish to delete inside it). Make sure the Tube's raster layer is selected and hit "Delete". The bottom part of the tube should be gone making it look like the bottom of the tube is sitting inside the frame.

Click "Selections --> Select None"

Select the Text tool and font of your choice. Type what you want and move it to the desired location.

Convert Vector to a Raster Layer.

Add drop shaddow... I use the settings 4, 4, 100, 4.00

With the raster selected, got to "Effects --> Plugins" (I used Eye Candy 4000).
Settings are:
Vein Size: 28.11
Vein Coverage: 58
Vein Thickness: 21
Vein Roughness: 58
Bedrock color: Black
Vein Color: #076b07
Seamless Tile deselected
Click random speed
Then "OK"

Then Copy and Merge (ctrl+shift+C)

Open Annimation Shop and Paste as a new layer

Go back to Paint Shop and undo the marble effect,

With the raster selected, got to "Effects --> Plugins" (I used Eye Candy 4000).
Settings are:
Vein Size: 28.11
Vein Coverage: 58
Vein Thickness: 21
Vein Roughness: 58
Bedrock color: Black
Vein Color: #076b07
Seamless Tile deselected
Click random speed
Then "OK"

Then Copy and Merge (ctrl+shift+C)

Then back to Annimation Shop and hit (ctrl+L) to add another new frame.

Repeat this step 3 or 4 times.. till there are about 3 or 4 frames....

Then go to "Edit--> Select All"
"Animation--> Frame Properties--> Time display 20"
OK

Then save image...

You have just made an animated tag!!!!

If you do not have animation shop you can alway just add the tube and your writing without the animation.

Hope you enjoyed this and it helped.
