*Click for bigger/ animated version

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: 
Tube: I'm using the artwork of Joahannah von Frankenstein 
which can only be found at ART.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Scrapkit: I'm using a kit called Devilish from AmyMarie.
You can find this kit in the ART store.

Filters: Xero- Fritillary

Tramages- Tow The Line
Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow 

Font: More Than Human

Drop shadow used: 2 4 65 3, black.
