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 Tony Tzanoukakis, (Care For a Drink) which you need a license to use. This tube will be released into Tony's store within a day or two of this tutorial being posted. It's a preview of tubes "coming soon."
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, by Kandii Popz, called Care For a Drink, which is the matching kit for the Care For a Drink tube by Tony T, and will be available in his store when the tube is released.
Font of choice, I am using Abaddon
Plugins: No outside plugins used
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.
Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.
