Congratulations on completing an animated image! Thank you for using my tutorial. I write these for my enjoyment and your pleasure.

The very beautiful image below is one created by Evatexas using the tutorial above. She changed the color black to red and did her Mask a bit differently, but for the most part, she followed the tutorial. This is an example of how you can use a tutorial and make it your own by changing the tubes and colors. I think she did a marvelous job!

A big thank you to my testers, Evatexas and PamelaD whose time and help I so appreciate!

If you are going to use this tutorial for stationery, cards or place the tutorial/tag on another site, I would appreciate you contacting me for permission, giving Arasimages credit for the original tutorial and if possible, a link back to my site. Thank you.
