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.
Scrapkit: I'm using Cherry Chops from Purple's Kreationz.
Tube: I'm using the adorable artwork of Lady Mishka.
I'd gotten mine from PFD. At the time of this tutorial,
I don't think her artwork is available anywhere.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased the tube.
Masks: DBVMaskstars3 & SuperstarMask3byJenny
from the Creative Misfits blog.
You can get both here.
Word Art: from me, here.
Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy Imapct 5- Gradient Glow
Font: Carpenter Script
Drop shadows: 3 3 45 5, black
