FTU- Surrender Yer Booty

* 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 a FTU kit from Tasha's Playground
named Don't Be A Pirate.
You can find this kit, here.
* Leave Tasha lots of loving when you snag the kit. =)

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis.
I got mine from PTE, but you can find more 
of his artwork at the Elias Art Shop.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: Template0023 from me, here

Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

And a drop shadow.

Finally, delete the white background, 
merge visible, save as a PNG & enjoy.
