This Tutorial was written on March 17th, ‎2013 by Ashly
It is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental.

Please do not copy and do not post elsewhere.
Do not translate or script.
This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

Tube of choice.
I am using the artwork of Isobel Von Finklestein
You must purchase a license to use her tubes and can do so HERE

Addittional Filters
MuRa's Meister – Copies

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas
600px by 250px

Add your tube to your canvas
Filter → MuRa's Meister → Copies
Wallpaper (rotate)
The rest at default

Filter → Blur → Radial Blur
100, Spin, Good

Move the center dot to about the center of your canvas

Filter → Sharpen → Sharpen Edges

Add your tube to your canvas
Resize and Reposition in the center to your liking
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to overlay
Add a drop shadow to the original one

Add your tube below these two layers once more
Have the heart sort of be the focus on the left side
Once you have it how you want it
Duplicate, Flip horizontally and move to the right side of the banner

Merge those two layers together
Change the blend mode to luminosity, lower the opacity to 40%
Duplicate 3 times so you have a total of 4 layers
Hide your main tube so you can see these layers better
Using your lasso tool
Select around the heart and hands on both sides
On the second heart beat layer (the first is going to remain as is :) )
Filter → Distort → Pinch
Amount 9

On the third, repeat this filter
Amount 7

On the fourth layer, repeat once more
Amount 5

Now, Hide all of them but your very first layer, we'll come back to the animation in a bit.

Unhide your two main focus tube layers.

Add some wording that you'd like in white, change the blend mode to soft light

Use your rectangle marquee tool to select the whole canvas
Add two new layers at the top
On the bottom of the two new layers
Edit → Stroke
Center, 10px and black

On the top
Edit → Stroke
Center, 6px, a color that comes from your tube
Add noise to the top one

Change blend mode of the bottom to overlay

Add your name

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with your result save to your liking and you're done!

Now onto the animation

You're going to open your animation window
The first layer set your delay to 1 sec (that's the one we didn't change at all)

On the second, third and fourth layer the delay is .1 sec
You're going to just have each layer visible for each animation frame

Press play and it should look like a heart beat :)

If you're having with it save as a .gif and you're done!

If you want to make an avi with it

Merge all your layers but the name, copyright and border layrs
Create a clipping mask that's 175px by 200px in size

Add it to another canvas
Add your initial, copyright and borders as we did before

Save to your liking and you're done!
