♥Emo Babe (Animated) FTU♥

Here is what we are going to be making :
**Please remember that all of my tutorials are made using my own Ditzy noggin, any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & unintentional!!**

(This tag is animated, so please click on it to see its original size & animation)

This was a challenge at Blog Gurlz for a "name tag" so I decided to tut mine as it was a simple signature that I thought would be easy for beginners of PSP.
This would be considered a tutorial for beginners. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me, my email address is provided below at the end of the tutorial :-)

Supplies Needed :

PaintShop Pro X2 (Any version should work)
Scrapkit : FTU  Emo Babe Colab By Toxic Desirez

Plug-ins Used :
Eye Candy 4 Gradient Glow (Optional)

Elements Used From Kit :

Skull1
Ribbon1
Screw
Ribbon3
Dice

Lets Begin :

Start by opening a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas. (Don't worry we will crop it later)

Now activate your text tool set your font to Happy, Size 150 Color: @ec5ecf  then click on your canvas to open the text box, now type out the name you want your tag to have.

Now open your Skull1 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 40%. Now using your move tool, move your Skull1 element to the left of your name. Then go to your layers pallet and right click on your Skull1 layer and click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror, then use your move tool to position as desired.
Now do the following for both of your Skull1 layers, Go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.
Then go to Effects, click 3D Effects then click Drop Shadow, you can use my settings below your own.
Now open your Ribbon1 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then use your move tool and move your Ribbon1 element to the left side of your name. Now go to your layers pallet and right click on your Ribbon1 layer, then click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror and use your move tool to adjust the position if you need to.In your layers pallet again right click on your duplicated Ribbon1 layer and click Merge then from the slide out menu click Merge Down.
Now go to Adjust, click Sharpness then apply a drop shadow.

Now open your Ribbon3 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then go to Image and click Free Rotate , set to Right 90.00 and click Ok. Now use your move tool and move your Ribbon3 element to the left end of your name. Now go to your layers pallet and right click on your Ribbon 3 layer, then click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror.Use your move tool again to adjust the position of your duplicated Ribbon3 element if needed. Now in your layers pallet again, right click on your duplicated Ribbon3 layer and click Merge, then click Merge Down from the slide out menu.
Now that your 2 Ribbon3 layers are merged into 1 go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen, and then apply a drop shadow.

Now open your Dice element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 20%. Using your move tool, place your Dice element to the left side of your tag above your name.So it looks like it is hanging from the ribbon. Now in your layers pallet, right click on your Dice layer, then click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror. Using your move tool again, adjust the position of your duplicated Dice element to the right side of your name, again you want it to appear to be hanging from the ribbon on the right side.
Go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.
Apply a drop shadow.

Now click on your name layer, right click and click Convert To Raster Layer, then go to Effects, click Plug-ins then click Eye Candy 4, then Gradient Glow and apply either my settings or your own :




Then click Ok. 
Now apply a drop shadow.

Once that is done, activate your Magic Wand, and click inside each letter of the name that you chose to use on your tag. Once that is done go to your layers pallet and right click on your name layer, then click Duplicate, now right click on your duplicated name layer and click Duplicate again.
Now you should have 3 name layers. You will want to re-name each of your name layers so start at the bottom name layer (which is your original name layer) : Name Layer 1, Name Layer 2, and Name Layer 3

Now hide your Name Layers 2 & 3 by clicking the eyeballs next to each layer. Make sure you are on your Name Layer 1, then go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise, set to Uniform, 30 and the Monochrome box IS checked, then click Ok.

Now unhide your Name Layer 2 layer by clicking the eyeball next to your layer, and then go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise, only this time we are gonna change the noise level to 35 (everything else will stay the same) then click Ok.

Now unhide Name Layer 3, go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then Add Noise, and change only the noise setting to 40 and click Ok.

Now go to Selections and click Select None, OR you can use your Ctrl & D keys on your keyboard to select none.

Now it is time to animate so open your Animation Shop :

Now hide name layers 2 & 3 and click on Name Layer 1, go to Edit, click Copy Special then click Copy Merged from the slide out menu.
Go to your Animation Shop and right click in your grey workspace area and click "Paste As New Animation". 
Then go back to your PSP, and hide you Name Layer 1 and unhide your Name Layer 2, go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click Copy Merged, go to Animation Shop and right click in the frame we just put there, click Paste and then click "After Current Frame".
Now go back to your PSP one last time and hide your Name Layer 2, and unhide your Name Layer 3, now go to Edit, click Copy Special, then click copy Merged from the slide out menu. 
Go back to your Animation Shop, right click in your Frame 2 area, then click Paste, then click "After Current Frame".
Now view your animation, if it is to your liking you will want to crop your tag.




To crop something in your Animation Shop, just click on Crop tool,


Crop off any access canvas that we did not use. Be careful not to crop to close to your elements, fonts, shadows. If you do make a mistake just click your undo button. Or use your Ctrl & Z key to undo as many steps as you need to.

If everything is the way you like it, all you have left to do is save your name tag as a GIF file!!

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial, As always I would love to see what you have made using this or any of my tutorials. Please send me an email with a copy of your design! I would love to display them on my blog!
