Grethe, here's how I did it.

1/ Draw the background and colour it.
2/ Place a "Cog" over it, put it in a different colour, reduce its opacity and put an "Elliptical Tansparence" over it.
3/ Copy this "Cog" for later use and lock it.
4/ Type the text on the set, "Convert to Curves", "Expand Stroke" and "ungroup".
5/ Paste the "Cog", set "Tooth Size" to 0%, set the line thickness to 0.05 pt and "Expand Stroke".
6/ Copy this new "Cog".
7/ Paste the cog.
8/ Select one of the letters and the cog, do "Divide".
9/ Select in the layers all the parts of the letter and apply an fx "Outer Shadow" to them.
10/ Slightly move each part of the letter to give the burst effect.
11/ Delete the residential lines of the "Cog" resulting from the "Divide" operation.

Then repeat the same operation for each letter.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything, if you have a problem, don't hesitate to ask me!  :yes04:
