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 Zlata M which you need a license to use.
This tube came from Scraps & The City and I'm not sure if it is available anywhere else now,
she is no longer there. The first link is to her section at PFD
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit Chell by Amy Marie
Font of choice, I am using God Bless America
Plugins: No outside plugins
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.
Let's get started!
Open a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background

click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open peper 17 copy and paste as a new layer
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize 75%
