Loves Zombies

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 Wendy Gerber (Zombie Chick tube) 
which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Cute But Deadly 1 by Toxic Desirez

Font of choice, I am using Rat Infested Mailbox

Mask: VixMaskHalloween0904 by Vix PSP
I don't see this particular mask on her blog anymore but she has a lot of 
Halloween masks here

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
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 75%

 add the following elements
city arrange behind your tube
canned food resize  55% arrange on bottom right
virus resize  35% arrange on bottom left
brain resize  35% arrange behind & right of brain
gas mask resize  50% rotate right 30 arrange behind canned food
Skulls & roses resize  50% arrange right of brain
 cuppy resize  35% arrange left of canned food
gun resize  35% arrange in front of brain & virus
hand resize  40% arrange above brain & virus
bloody eye resize  25% arrange by gun
blood logo (biohazard symbol) resize 25% arrange on tube

add a new raster layer above your white background
flood fill with #990408
apply your mask and merge group

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
