FTU- You Make My Heart Sing

*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 X2, 
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed: 
Scrapkit: I'm using the FTU Wild Thing kit from Tasha's Playground.
You can find this on her blog, here.
*Leave some love when grabbing the kit.

Tube(s): I'm using images of Ville Valo that I tubed.
The images are © Joonas Brandt.
Do not use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Mask: of choice

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy Imapct 5- Gradient Glow

Font: Pineapples Don't Have Sleeves 

Drop shadow: 2 4 50 4, black 
Save your progress often.;)

With your magic wand, click inside the frame.

Hit delete & select none. Crop to canvas.
Duplicate your tube. On the top one, add a gaussian blur of 3.

Add a drop shadow to the bottom tube.

Add a drop shadow.

Add your main tube. Resize as needed.

Now we'll add some elements.
