*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 stunning Dark Dreams kit
You can visit her blog post here to find out 
where you can get this must-have kit.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Deacon Black.
You can find this & all his other amazing tubes at CDO.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Masks: MP-CandiedButterfliesMask2 from Maria's Place.
You can find the mask in this set, here.
* Leave some love for the masks. ;)

Filters: Xero- Radiance
