C/P element 25 as a new layer. Re-size by 20% and move to lower edge of mask. Position behind and to the left of blue flower bundle and duplicate. Free rotate to the right by 80%. Add drop shadow to both. Move the duplicated layer  at top of flower bundle layer but leave it behind.

Do the same for element 112. Position behind umbrella on right side of tag.
If you have a close up of your tube, add it to your background and change blendmode to luminence and drop Opacity to 58. Now click on your mask layer, go to Selections, select all, Selections, float, Selections, Invert. Now delete your close up layer, you should have all the excess tube removed. De-select.

Go to File, Save as, enter the name of your file and select the folder to save to.
Now click on Customize:
Under COLORS TAB:
Number of colors: 255 Colors
Create palette by: OPTIMIZED OCTREE
Reduce colors by: Error Diffusion
Under OPTIMIZATIONS TAB:
set a check mark beside the second, third and forth choices. UN-check the 1st and last.
Under PARTIAL TRANSPARENCY:
check Convert pixels less than 92
Yes, blend with this color: change to white #FFFFFF
Click OK. Click Next, next, next, next.
Play your animation.
At times your animation may or will come out terrible. Optimization in Animation Shop is not the greatest.
You can play around will your settings, especially under the Tab: Optimization. I change this setting at times from anywhere between 70 and 100.
Some people add a white background.  To add background, go to Animation: Animation Properties, select Opaque and change color to white.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial,
