For this tutorial you will need:
Psp 7

Eyecandy 4000

This tube ...
Bunnies in basket

Open up a new image 500*500 pixels with a transparent background.
Then Select the preset shapes tool make sure you have retain style,
antialias and create as vector ticked and draw an ellips size 390*290
Then go to Image/ flip. Then highlight raster layer 1 and add the tube
with the scale 65%. Now add a new raster layer (layers/ new raster layer).
Move the vector layer down to the bottom, then activate your new layer. This is what you should have now...



The one without the tube, then select the dropper tool and select one of
the colours from the tube. Now select the airbrush tool and set it like so...



Then spray around on the new layer but keep it all inside the black ellips.
the ellips, do this with about 4 colours. I used blue, yellow, pink and green.
So now you should have something looking like this...



Now go to effects/ blur / gaussian blur and blur with a radius of 5.
Then go to effects/ plugins / eyecandy 4000/ jiggle. In eyecandy you go to
setting / extreme warp then click ok and ok again.
Ok now lets go back, eyecandy / swirl then go to settings and pick wispy, click ok.
This is what you should have now...



Now move this whispy layer to the bottom. (layers/ arrange / send to bottom)
Add a new raster layer then select the text tool. Drag the mouse over the edges of
the back ellips until you get an A with a bow under it, then you click it.
Add your name with any font size and colour you'd like.

I used a font called GE curviture and size 72.
When you added your text and clicked ok you will notice it's upside down and mirrored
so go to image / flip and then image / mirror then use the mover tool
to move the text into place. Then go to effects/ 3d effects / inner bevel and
add with the following settings...



Now delete the vector layer ie the black ellips , we don't need it anylonger.
Right click on it on the layer palette and click delete.
Hightlight the bunny tube layer and then go to effects/ 3d effects/dropshadow.
Add with vertical and horizontal both set to 1, opacity = 70 and blur to 5.
Then add the same dropshadow to the text.

You don't need the text nor the tube
to be selected to add the drop shadow.
Ok now move the pieces around to your liking and then go
to layers/ merge / merge visible.
Save as .jpg and you are done !
Great work :o)
