PTU Tutorial- Thirsty For More

*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 awesome Vampyre 
scrap kit from Toxic Desirez.
You can find this kit here or at at some 
of the other stores she sells in.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Misticheskaya.
This is an exclusive at Pics for Design,
however she does have other amazing artwork 
there you should check out.
Do not use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

Mask: Mask 22 from Ria's PSP Paradise.
You can find this mask here on her blog.
* Leave a thank you for the beautiful mask. ;)

Filters: Xero- Radiance
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Font: Music Hall

Drop shadows: 5 5 60 20, black for most of the tag.
35 30 60 20, black for the bats

Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Flood fill with #f6e4b9 or a similar colour.
Apply the mask & merge group. 

Next, copy & paste Frame 3.
Resize the frame 70%.
With your magic wand, click inside the frame.
Selections- Modify- Expand by 4. Invert.
Copy & paste a paper of choice into the frame,
re-sizing the paper 80%. Hit delete. Select none.
Move your paper below the frame in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to your frame.

Now, add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Apply Xero: Radiance at these settings,
or other settings that you find suitable for your tube:
Finally, add a drop shadow to your tube.

Now we'll add some elements.
For each one, I added a drop shadow, 
unless specified otherwise.
