Lets Begin -

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

Open Hippo 2 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 35%.
Use your move tool & position your Hippo2 element to the left side of your canvas.

You can use my settings below or your own :
Click Ok.

Go to Effects - Click 3D Effects - Click Drop Shadow.
You can use my settings below or your own :
Click Ok.

Now activate your text tool, set your Font, Size & Color (all listed above for your reference if you want to use them)
Now click on your canvas so that your text box opens, Once your text box opens type out the name you wish you put on your tag.
Now before you click apply, highlight one letter at a time & change the color of each individual letter.
Once all letters are the colors you want them click apply.

Now position your name on your canvas to your liking. 
Then go to your layers pallet, right click on your name layer, then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects, click Plugins ,then click Eye Candy 4000 - then from the slide out menu click Gradient Glow. You can use my settings below or your own :


Click Ok.
Now go to Effects - Click 3D Effects - Then click Drop Shadow & apply the same settings as you did for your Hippo2 element.

Click on your magic wand tool, now click inside each letter in the name you chose to put on your tag.
Once all letters are selected (you should see the little marching ants around each letter)
Go to Effects - Click Plugins - then from the slide out menu click Glass. Use the same settings we used above for the Hippo2 element.
