I am using the artwork of Jennifer Janesko. You need a license to use her work and one can be obtained at

You will need my supplies, which you can download at
I do not know who the background image or wordart belongs to. If anyone knows, please message me so that I can add the details or remove the tutorial.

 Layer, new raster layer, Layer, arrange, move to top, floodfill with a light color from your tube.

 Activate your background image again, 
Copy and paste the tube your want to use, position on the left side, duplicate, image mirror, 
change the properties to overlay and the opacity to around 40%, 
Drop shadow the tube on the left.

Copy and paste your wordart onto your tag, 
Selections, Select All, Float, Defloat, 
Layer, New Raster Layer, fill with your choice of color from your tube, 
I chose the gold gradient that comes with PSP, Deselect, delete the original wordart layer. 
Add your copyright/license info on tag. 
Hide the bottom two background layers, 
Copy Merged and paste into animation shop as a new animation, 
back in PSP, hide the 3rd copy of the background and unhide the 2nd background layer,
 copy merged and paste into Animation Shop after current image, 
back in PSP, hide that layer and  unhide the bottom background layer 
 copy merged and paste into Animation Shop after current image,
