To ‘INCARNATION” which is a free share font.
You decide which one you would like to use.

SIZE: 65 pixels#6d4443
19..: Drop Shadow , Color :#6d4443 with these settings:
..:: STEP 3
1..: This is how our layer palette looks so far
We are going to create 2 different files from these layers:
2..:In the layer palette close the visibility of
“back_stars” AND “Pinksquare” layers
And we merge the rest of layers into one:
3..: Save as Animation Shop *psp file
Name it : PINK TUBES
4..: Close the visibility of this “Pink tube merged layer”
Open the visibility of the other two left
“back_stars and Pinksquare” layers
5..:Save as Animation Shop*psp file
Name it: “PINK _BACK”
Now we have 3 files. We will bring them into animation shop
To put them together:
“Pink _square, Pink_tubes, Pink_back”
ANIMATION SHOP 3
1.:: OPEN files in Animation Shop:
“Pink _square, Pink_tubes, Pink_back”
2..:: Duplicate “Pink tubes” and “Pink back”
So get to have 2 frames on each one
as we do have already in “Pink_square”
3.:: SELECT frames of “Pink_square”
EDIT –> SELECT ALL–>COPY
4.:: And paste it into “Pink_back” like this:
EDIT–> PASTE INTO SELECTED FRAME
This is what we will have :
5..:: Select “Pink_tubes” frames
6..:: And paste them into the animation we are creating:
EDIT–>SELECT ALL–>PASTE INTO SELECTED FRAME
And we are done!
Save as a GIF .
