PTU- Gothic Meets Steampunk

* Click for bigger

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind. 
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP.
This tutorial was written using PSP XI, tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice. I am using the artwork of DiMary, 
called Goth Bride at Pics For Design
This tube is an exclusive tube available 
for members of the Exclusive Club.
Any other tube will work nicely for this tutorial, also. ;)
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so & have purchased the tube.

Scrapkit is Gothic Meets Steampunk. 
This is a pay to use kit from Brenda 
& can be found by visiting her store- Ditz Bitz.

Mask of choice.

Font: Font of choice.

Filters (optional): Xero- Bad Dream

Now's the time to add your copyrights/ watermarks.
