Bourbon Street

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 Alicia Mujica which you need a license to use.  
This tube is called Carnaval and it comes in a special 3 pack of tubes only.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Scrappin With Lil Ole Me called Bourbon Street 

Font of choice, I am using Ballerina Script
