This tutorial assumes a basic working knowledge of PSP and AS. I use X5 but any version will do.

No scraps are used for this tutorial.
The cats image is copyright to Lucia Stewart and is available for purchase from PSP Tubes Stop HERE

You will need the plugin Eye Candy 5000 Impact - Glass and you can get that HERE And Eye Candy 4000 - Melt and you can get that HERE
Fonts used are Blue Highway Linocut and Bathing Cap, both available HERE

Open a new transparent image 600 x 250
Set your foreground color to #336f48 and your background color to #c5bf3a
Make a gradient with these colors:

Flood fill your layer with the gradient
You can either use an overlay of scenery or even texture in the background - or nothing if you prefer!
Open your Lucia Stewart tube, copy the layer with the rails, then minimize for now
Paste as new layer and move to the bottom right
Change the foreground to #336f48 and background to #c5bf3a
With your preset shapes tool, pull a rectangle - you need to tilt it, so not tooooo big!
Tilt to the left
Convert to raster and flood fill with the gradient
Paste as new layer and reduce the size of the train and angle it to fit the rectangle
Reduce the opacity of this train layer to 50%
New raster layer
Select all
Selectons, modify, contract, 5
selections, invert
Flood fill with the gradient
Effects, plugins, Eye Candy 5000 Impact - Glass:

Give your train layers and your rectangle a drop shadow - I used 3, 3, 30,5, black
Ok now the fun part!
With Blue Highway Linocut, yellow in the foreground, green in the background, stroke with 1 - type Stressed
Give your text a drop shadow - for this I used -3, -3, 30, 5, black
Effects, Eye Candy 4000 - Melt:

Duplicate this layer
Adjust, Brightness and Contrast, Brightness/Contrast - both set at 48
Add your copyright info and license number for the Lucia Stewart tube
Change your font to Bathing Cap, and reverse your foreground and background colors
Click the layer that has the tilted train on it to activate it
Type your name, give it a small drop shadow, tilt it the same angle as your train rectangle and position at the bottom left of that rectangle
Reverse your foreground and background colors again
Type Not Me!, give it a small drop shadow and move under the word Stressed
Duplicate this layer three times
On each of the three duplicate layers, move the text and change the angles around - you're supposed to be stressed lol
Close the eye on all of the three duplicate layers
Close the eye on the duplicate layer of the word stressed
Click any layer with an open eye to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and paste as new animation
Close the eye on the orginal "Stressed" layer and open the eye on the duplicate "Stressed" layer
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and paste after current frame
Close the eye on the duplicate "Stressed" layer and open the eye on the original "Stressed" layer
Close the eye on your "Not Me" layer
Open the eye on the first of your Not me layers that you angled
Click this layer to activate it
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and paste after current frame
Back to PSP, close the eye on the first of your angled Not Me layers, and open the eye on the next one
Click it to activate the layer
Edit, copy special, copy merged
Go to AS and paste after current frame
Repeat for the last Not Me layer
Edit, select all
Animation, frame properties and change the speed to 40
Save as a gif file - and don't stress about it! :)
