Bottle 1
Bow 2
Barbed Wire 
Word Tape 1

BF2
BF1
Curly Ribbon 1

Lets Begin :

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

Activate your text tool, set your font, size & color. Again the ones I used were
Cheri
Size : 200 Pixels
Color : #e70675

Now click on your canvas to open your text box, type out your name & click Apply.
Now in your layers pallet, right click on your name layer & then click Convert To Raster Layer. 
Now go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then Gradient Glow.
You can use your own settings, or mine, the choice is always yours, mine are just an example :


Then click Ok.
Now go to Effects, click 3D Effects, then click Drop Shadow.
These are the settings that I used : (remember these are just my personal preference, you can change anything you would like :


Click Ok.

Now activate your Magic Wand tool, then click inside each letter in your name. 

(Depending on the font you use you may not have to click in each letter, if you use a script font, or one where the letters are connected together, you may only have to click the first letter, it depends on the font. But you want all the letters to have the little marching ants around them :-)

Once all your letters are selected, go to Effects, click Plugins, then click Eye Candy 5 Impact, then click Glass.
Again these are my personal settings, you can use them if you wish, or you can play around with the settings until you get the effect that you want :


Click Ok.

Now keeping your letters selected, go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise. When that menu opens, set your settings to your liking.
I used the following :
Uniform
40
Monochrome checked.

Click Ok.

Now go to Selections & click Select None.

Then in your layers pallet, click on the very last bottom layer,

Now open your Hearts 1 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 40%. (To re-size an element, go to Image, & click on Re-size. Then the following window will open)

Now if you have one, activate your Sparkle tube, make a new raster layer, then left click on your canvas where you would like to place your sparkles.

Now you will want to add any copyright & or credit information.

Then if you are happy with the placement of all your elements & text, go to your layers pallet, right click on any layer & click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your crop tool & crop off any access canvas that we did not use.

Then once you have cropped your canvas ,you may want to re-size your siggy. Remember that when re-sizing the completed merged siggy that you make sure you are set to Pixels, and that re-size all layers box is checked.

After you re-size , go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen, to give your siggy one last finishing touch. :-)

All that is left now is to save your siggy in PNG format & you have completed this tutorial !! ♥
