PTU Tutorial- Boo-licious

*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 Toxic Desirez 
named Kandy Kauldron.
Check out her blog to find out where 
you can get this kit, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Ismael Rac.
You can find more of his tubes at his store here.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Mask: Halloween Mask 01 2015 from Kristin 
which you can find here.
*Make sure to say thank you. ;)

Filters: Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow
Eye Candy 4000- Corona

Font: Respective

Drop shadows: 0 2 50 15, black
30 18 60 15, black for the butterfly 

Save your progress often.;)

Let's do this! =)

Move this paper below your frame in layers palette.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.

Add your main tube. Resize as needed.
Position on the lower left.
