Add a new raster layer and fill it with your color

the pattern in patterns.

I've given the name a subtle glow using Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: Impact - Gradient glow

Now we're ready to animate.
Close 2 of the flame layers and 2 of the mask layers.
Merge visible and copy

Open Animation Shop 3 and paste as new animation.
Undo in psp, and open the next flame and mask layer closing the ones you've used.

Merge visible again and copy. Paste after current in Ani Shop 3.
Do the same to the 3 layers in PSP.

Select all frames and change frame properties to 20.
And you're done!!

Thanks for trying it out, and hope you've had fun!!
