For this tutorial you will need the following:
Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.
Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Ismael Rac, which you need a license to use.
At the time of this tutorial, the tube and both of the matching scrap kits were previews of
"coming soon" tubes/kits. They should be available in the store in the next day or two.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using 2013 HatGirl scrap kit by Kandii Popz, which is coming soon to the
Ismael Rac store. It is one of two matching scrap kits for this tube.
Font of choice, I am using akaDora
