Undress Me





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 (2013 Undress me 2009 Revamp), which you need a license to use.  
This is a revamp tube that has not yet been released in the store. It will be there
within a day or two of this tut being published

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  the matching scrap kit, Undress Me by Wicked Creationz
which will be in Ismael's store when the tube is released

Font of choice, I am using impace

Mask: of your choice

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.
