Dark Angel

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 Zindy S.D. Nielson (Angel in Black tube) 
plus a close up tube of your choice
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Phat Kat by Scrappin' With Lil Ole Me

Font of choice, I am using Sick Capital Vice

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.

Let's get started!

Open a new canvas 850 x 850 pixels with a white background
open  copy and paste as a new layer
click inside the top left and bottom right side squares with your magic wand, selections, modify, 
expand 2, selections, invert
open paper copy and paste as a new layer
click delete on your keyboard, open your close up, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the top left square, click delete on your keyboard. do the same with the bottom right side, then deselect

Do the same with the top right and bottom left squares using paper 10, but do not add a tube

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer mirror it, arrange it in the center of the frame
