Supplies Needed
Animation Shop

Graphics Plus Cross Shadow

The tube I used #29-2 is by Cuddly Rigor Mortis, you can purchase this tube from CDO here

The name of the font I used is FB Lipgloss
I used size 48

Open new transparent canvas 940x400, we will resize later
Floodfill with a color from your tube
Add texture>daze.scale 50, depth 3
Apply grahics plus cross shadow, change the 2 bottom #'s to 70

Paste your tube as a new layer
Resize as needed
Add drop shadow
If you're using the same tube,
Select around the mouse, copy & cut
Paste as a new layer

Duplicate & mirror your tube
Resize to 75%
Position in opposite corner

Position your mouse beside the right cat
Activate your pick tool
Duplicate 1 time
Decrease the position x by 100

Duplicate and decrease position by 100 again

Duplicate & repeat
Do this all the way across

I ended up with 7 mice

Starting from the bottom mouse rename these layers to mouse 1, mouse 2, etc

Duplicate each of the mouse layers, one at a time then mirror & hide

You'll now have layers named mouse 1, copy of mouse 1 & so on

Resize all layers to 70%

Add your text, name & © info


Hide all your mouse layers except mouse 1
Merge visible
Copy & paste into animation shop

Undo your merge
Hide mouse 1 & unhide mouse 2
Merge & paste after current in animation shop

Undo your merge
Hide mouse 2 & unhide mouse 3
Merge visible & paste after current in animation shop

Continue this for all 7 mouse layers

Undo your last merge
Hide mouse 7 & unhide copy of mouse 1

Continue until you have all of the copy layers done

You should have 14 frames

I set my frame properties on 15

View your animation

Save as gif & you're all done!
