If you wish to add the steam effect, Here's how:

With your freehand selection tool, make a selection around the top of the mug, Layers-New Raster Layer, Effects-Plugins- Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Nature-Smoke with these settings,

Repeat this process till you have 3 smoke/steam layers, but hit random for each new layer. In your layer palette, reduce the opacity of each of these 3 layers to 48%.

Close off the bottom 2 smoke layers in your layer palette and the bottom 2 main frame backgrounds, Make another layer active, Edit-Copy Special-Copy Merged,

Paste as a new animation in Animation shop, back to PSP.

Repeat this process for the remaining two layers, pasting after current frame in Animation Shop.
