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.
Scrapkit: I'm using a PTU kit from Tasha's Playground,
named Punk You. You can find more information about
the kit on her blog here.
Tube: I'm using the artwork of Zlata M.
You can find this & more gorgeous tubes at PFD.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased the tube.

** Optional Gradient for the name, here.
Filters: Eye Candy 5: Nature- Rust
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow
