Add a new Raster Layer
Activate the Text Tool and type your text in again.
Click the Apply Changes
Deselect & shift the text if necessary
Click on the Float icon - You now have 4 layers in the layer palette - with the top one being the Floating Selection.
Click on the Defloat icon - This cancels any float you had, so now the Floating Selection is gone and you will have text
and a Set of running ants, but they are not connected any longer, they are separate.
With the mover tool grab the text and drag it down - this will move the text but NOT the running ants.
Flood Fill the Running ants with the Darker green
Go to the Texture Icon and apply any texture you wish to that text
Apply and Inner Bevel of your choice to that text also.
Look in the Layer Palette and you will see 2 sets of text on the one layer - Raster 2.
Apply a Drop Shadow to this layer - it will go on both sets of text - you can use your own drop shadow, but below is the one I used.
- Vertical = 5
- Horizontal = 5
- Opacity = 50
- Blur = 5
- Colour = Black
- Shadow on New Layer = Unticked
Activate Raster 1 and Activate the Magic Wand
Change the tolerance to 0
Click somewhere on the pale colour of this layer - this is the top row of Text = The outline of text is not selected this time.
Apply Blinds to this selection
- Width = 2
- Opacity = 50
- Colour = Black
- Horizontal = UNTICKED
- Light from left/top = TICKED
Apply the same Drop Shadow you used earlier
Activate the Promoted Selection layer = 2nd row of text
With the Magic Wand select the lighter area of this text
Apply Mosaic Glass with the following settings:-
- Number of columns = 25
- Number of rows = 25
- Symmetric = TICKED
- Glass curvature = 50
- Edge of curvature = 0

Deselect & apply the same drop shadow

3. OBJECT REMOVER TOOL
Open the Baby's Breath with Poppy Image you downloaded from Pixabay - Duplicate and close the original.
Resize the image to 35% and sharpen.
Activate the Object Remover in the Drop Down menu where the Clone tool is.
Have the Selection Mode - Lasso tool activated
Draw around the Poppy as close as you can, including the stem, but you don't need to be perfect.
Now activate the Source Mode icon and it works like the crop tool so you pulling the nodes in to select an area in the image to replace the poppy with.
So grab it in the centre and move it over to the left to select an area that is similar to the background where the poppy is.
Pull the nodes in so that the selection is just big enough to cover the poppy.
Then click on the Apply Tick - have a look at the result - save this to compare with Version 2
Click the undo button and now try this
You can click the Redo button to place the selections back on the image, but make these changes to the settings
Tick the Smart Blending box
Put the Feather on 30
Click the apply changes a few times until the flower is gone
