* 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 and was written using PSP XI, 
tho' any version should work.
Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using a FTU kit named Check Your Chi Chis 
from Amy of Amy & Leah's Gimptastic Tuts. This is part 
of an awesome FTU collab. for Breast Cancer Awareness.
You can find the kit here on their blog.
Tube: I'm using the gorgeous art work of Keith Garvey.
This is an exclusive tube for those who donated for the 
Taking Back PSP fundraiser earlier this year.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license 
to do so & had donated for the tube.
Template: Pbs-bca2Template-apforum-exclusive from Punky 
on the Addictive Addicts blog, here.
Mask: of choice
