Flash and Templates

Okay. I'd like to make an icon like this one here (made for me courtesy of the wonderful folks at eyekons).

I figured that it was just laying the template onto the image and creating the separate frames with the boxes filled in, and I tried that, but for some reason, it won't let me layer the three different templates. So I tried flattening it, but that removes the transparency. And then I tried a different template, but that wasn't the case either. Is there anyone here that knows how to do this? I use Photoshop Elements. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Fonts, colors, effect

Hi! :) I've many questions about making icon. I founded some cool icons from adiaaida..

I want to know what pattern/brushes she has used (those lines on avas, you see?). And I now there are many way to make so cool colors, but should the layer blending be Soft Light or Overlay (and can anybody tell, is she used texture or gradient ^^).

And fonts! What fonts do you recomend (I don't mean now SG04, SG02 and the little fonts) and the size of font? <- somebody has used simple effect for fonts, but how in earth she has made the black outline for the text? I'm using Paint Shop Pro 7, PhotoShop 7 and PhotoShop Elements 2.0. :)
