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 Tzanoukakia (Kiss This)which you need a license to use.
This tube is coming soon and will not be in the store until a day or two after this tutorial is published
Scrap kit of choice. I am using the matching kit (Kiss This) by Irish Princess Designs
which will be in Tony's store as soon as the tube is released
Font of choice, I am using Skyblue Clues
Mask: Vix Big Mask 1
Plugins: Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
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
Add the following, checking my tag for reference
City arrange a little to the right, duplicate & mirror merge together, add gradient glow using the
pink & white in the city lights width about 6 or 7
Car resize 80% arrange to the right
add your tube resize 35% arrange by car
stars arrange on left, duplicate & mirror, erase where they overlap
make your background black, foreground pink, take your color changer tool and
go over the stars, add white gradient glow

nail polish resize 25% arrange on left
lispstick resize 35% arrange on left
dice resize 35% arrange in middle

place around the tag
