****Please note - I post all settings that I use for every step, please feel free to use the same settings or play around with them to come up with your own effect. I wouldn't post my screen shots if I didn't want to share my settings, so please feel free to use if you would like*****

Open your Template - KDHAL2 , Then go to Image & click Canvas Size - set it to 800 X 700. (Don't worry you will crop it at the end of the tutorial, this just gives you some extra room to play with :-)

Now go to your layers pallet & delete the following layers :
Raster 2 - Which is the Credit layer (only after you have left your thank-you for the use of the template)
Background Layer
Now click on the Black Rectangle layer - go to Selections - click Select All - then click Selections again , then click Float - go to Selections 1 more time & click Defloat...

Now open P2 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 80%. Adjust the position so that the images on the paper are where you would like them within the marching ants.
Now go to Selections - click Invert - then on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time.
Go to Selections again & click Select None.

Now go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then Gradient Glow
(I have also added the color code for the second color I used. The first color is white which is #ffffff)


 Click Ok.

Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow.
**See note on screen shot for added info**



Then click Ok.

Now go to your layers pallet & delete your original Black Rectangle layer.

Now for the following layers you will follow basically the same steps above, I will add the paper I used for each, and what effects to add to it. 

Purple Circle - P11 (Do not add a gradient glow or drop shadow to this layer as it will not show.)
Orange Circles - P9 - Add Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow & Drop Shadow. 
Black Cut-Out Circle - P1- Apply Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow & Drop Shadow.
***Don't forget to delete your original Purple Circle , Orange Circles & Black Cut-Out Circle layers***.

Now in your layers pallet -click on your Moon layer - go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat -
Then make a new raster layer - then activate your flood fill tool, set your background color to #000000 (Black) then flood fill within your marching ants.
Now keeping it selected - Open your tube of choice - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it if needed. (I re-sized mine to 70%, if you are using the same tube you may like that size, if you chose a different tube adjust your size to your liking)
Now position your tube within the marching ants to your liking. Then once happy with the position go to Selections, click Invert - then on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time. Then back to Selections & click Select None.

(Using the same settings as before)


Then click Ok.

Now click on your Webs layer - apply the same Drop Shadow that you just applied to your Bats layer.
