PTU- Celebrate Spring

* 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 PTU kit from Tasha's Playground
 named Spring Dreams.
You can find more info about this kit, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Misticheskaya.
You can find more of this artwork at Pics For Design.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Template: TTzCelebrateSpringTemp2013
You can find the template here.

to soften the tube a bit:

Next we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added 
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.

Resize 47%. Do not sharpen. 
Place near the top right.

on the branch layer, hit delete & select none.

Place in front of your tube, to the right.

Then, add your proper copyrights & watermarks.

Next add your name.
Then add some noise-

And a drop shadow.

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