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 Alehandra Vanhek (Dolly tube) which you need a license to use.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Sorbet Dreams by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me
Font of choice, I am using Aligot de Mirabelle
Mask: WSL84, masks on are the right sidebar part way down the page
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!

click inside with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 2, selections, invert
open paper 16 copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboardCopy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 55%
