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 PinUp Toons which you need a license to use.
This tube is the February 2015 bonus tube only available at CDO during the month of February 2015 with a $10 purchase of PinUp Toons tubes. Or, sometimes they have a Bonus Bonanza where you can get retired tubes.
Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit by Monti called ScrapMonti_IB-JessicalDougherty-27-2
