Vanpire Night

"Vampire Night"
*This is an animated tag, to view animation click here  

What you need :

Tube of choice, I used artwork by Elias Chatzoudis
Cluster Frame, a freebie by me, here
Paper of choice, I used paper from my "Fangtasia" kit here  
Animation Shop
Plug Ins:
Eye Candy 5 : Impact>Gradient Glow
Xenofex 2 > Lightning
Graphic Program of choice, I use PSPX2
Font of choice,  I used Twilight

Let's Begin!

1. Open a new image, flood fill white

Open all of your supplies

2. C/P the cluster frame
Rotate 6 degrees to the right
Add drop shadow
Create a new raster layer behind the frame layer
Using your lasso tool, trace along the open area of the frame
C/P the tube of choice above the frame layer
Create a new raster layer in front of the paper layer
Add copyright info and name now if you do not know how to 
add text to an animated tag.

*We will begin to create each animated frame now*

Using your lasso tool again, Trace along the open area of the frame
Highlight the new raster layer above the paper layer

Go to Xenofex and apply the lightning
Any glow color and position is fine.
I placed mine at the top left corner and used white

Using your lasso tool again, trace along the face of the pumpkin
*You can use the magic wand tool, however it looks a bit sloppy
Go to gradient glow and choose the color white
(Nothing should be selected now)
Save as frame 1 or however you'd like
Now hit the undo button until nothing is there
(No lightning or glow)
Save as Frame 2
Repeat these steps
I have a total of 6 frames
You may choose to do less.

Open animation shop and using the animation wizard, open all of your frames
Right click each frame and go to frame properties
Change the speed from 10 to 15
Now you can change each speed in the frames to be different
The higher number, the longer the frame speed
I have mine set between 10-20 to make it seem random
Play animation, if you are happy, your done!
