Santa's Reindeer

Snaggable versions of this tag in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X7, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Keith Garvey, Sexy Reindeer & the Santa tube which are free tubes in his store, which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Christmas with Alyce by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me 

Font of choice, I am using Christmas Card

links to her masks are down the page a little bit and on the right sidebar

Plugins: No outside plugins

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.
