Shadows - white instead of black

hi all!

One of my first GIMP tutorials is making a floating word - just a word with a simple 'shadow" giving the illusion of the word floating above its background

The page is this one :

In that tutorial, the end result is a word (with a special texture) and a black "shadow" cast against the gree-ish background

Tutorial is easy enough to do, but i tried creating a white shadow.

So, at the beggining, instead of black background + white writing, i did the opposite: white background and black writing.

Needless to say, despite following exactly same steps, results varied wildly compared to the site: 1) at the point where they talk about "layer -> Anchor Layer", instead of obtaining white background with plasma texture writing, i get plasma background and black writing (!!!) 2) lower on the page, at the point where they say "Creating a drop shadow", there is green background and plasma textured text ....but in my case, i get plasma background!

So, despite following same steps, the results vary wildly.

How EXACTLY do i make it so the shadow cast is white instead of black ? (or any other color)

Please, use GIMP and tell me exactly what i need to do.
