Click for bigger

This is the forum set that will go with the Death Blooms tag
from the previous post.

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 and was written using PSP XI, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using a PTU kit-  Black'd Emo Girl 
from Purple's Kreationz. You can find more info about 
this awesome kit here on her blog.
Tube: I'm using the wicked artwork of Screaming Demons.
You can find this at SATC
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.
Template: Misfits-#4-Made by LNM
This template can be found on the Creative Misfits blog.
Look on this post.
Make sure to leave some love when downloading the temp.;)
