PTU Tutorial- Zombocalypse

* 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 Zombocalypse.
Check out her blog to find out where 
you can get this kit, here.

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

Template: Template - 330 from Kristin.
You can find the template here.
* Leave her some love for the template. ;) 

Mask: DD_AssortedMask_3 from Dee which you can find here.
*Make sure to say thank you. ;)

Filters: Penta- Jeans
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow 

Font: Maleficio

Drop shadow: 4 2 50 10, black.
