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 Derzi called Moosie Boo which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit called Moosie Boo by Tiny Turtle Designs, made to go with the tube, Moosie Boo
Font of choice, I am using Young & Beautiful
Plugins: No outisde 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.
