PTU Tut- Black No. 1

* 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 my 'Black No. 1' kit
which you can find exclusively in 
my little shop on my site here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Freya Langford-Sidebottom.
I had bought this tube when she was still at AIL.
You can currently buy her artwork at her store, here.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: My template 0040 which you can grab 
from my blog, here.

Mask: RR_MaskSet67_Mask2 from Rachel.
You can snag the mask set here.
*Leave a thank you for the download. ;)

Filters: Penta- Jeans
Tramages- Tow The Line
Jeux de lignes- Entrelacement
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Anglican Text

Drop shadows: 2 2 60 10, black for most of the tag
30 20 60 10, black for the butterfly & devil bird
