FTU- Winter Diva

* 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 from Tasha's Playground,
named Winter Diva. This is part of an awesome collab.
You can find the kit on her blog here.
* Leave some love when downloading the kit. ;)

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Lady Mishka.
This was a prepaid project & is an exclusive to PFD.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Template0014 from me, here

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Mussica Swash

Drop shadow: 6 4 40 8, black.
