If I was Your Vampire

"If I Was Your Vampire"

What you need:
Tube of choice, I used artwork by Ismael Rac
Font of choice, I used Hurricane 
Supplies here
*These are not to be used for any other tutorial*
(Frame is a PTU element and can not be used commercially)
Graphic Program of choice, I use PSPX2
Animation Shop

Let's Begin!

1. Open a new transparent image
Open all of your supplies

2. C/P the frame included as a new layer
Create a new raster layer behind the frame
C/P the tube of choice above frame layer
Duplicate and drag 1 layer behind the frame layer
Trim the top and bottom tube layer to give it a 3D look
Add drop shadow
*I added a drop shadow several times to give the tube depth  from the dark background*
Add your copyright info and name now

3. Open the background animation into your Animation Shop
Select all frames
Copy and then Paste them in PSP
You should now have all the animation layers as 1 image in PSP

4. Going back to the frame, Using your lasso tool, trace along the heart shaped frame
Go to the blank raster layer you created in the beginning
Select the animation and go to the very bottom layer
Copy this and then paste it in the selection
*You may want to trim the animation before starting this process, so it doesn't appear to small*
Repeat the C/P until you have all the layers in the frame, saving each frame separately

5. Open the new tag frames in your animation wizard
Press play and if you are happy with the results save and your done!
