Feel free to use my tutorial in any way you would like. Although it is my ideas that will guide you, please feel free to do whatever you choose with it!

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. I used PSP X4 which has a few new settings.

Needed supplies:

Scrap Kit of choice or the one I am using called Killing Me Softly. This kit is by my good friend http://lifewithshal.blogspot.com/ and can be purchased at the places listed at her blog.

Link to the kit directly is posted http://lifewithshal.blogspot.com/2012/06/killing-me-softly-collaboration.html.


Tube: Artwork http://scrapsandthecity.com. In order to use the image in this tutorial you MUST purchase it from http://scrapsandthecity.com/store/.

Direct link to the tube can be found http://scrapsandthecity.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=339_371&products_id=8602.


Masks of Choice: the masks I used came from Vix. Her site can be found http://vixpsp.blogspot.com/

Direct link to the mask can be found http://vixpsp.blogspot.com/2012/02/valentines-masks-2012-freebies-ocourse.html.

I used Vix-Val2012Mask2.


Plugins: If so desired I used http://www.alienskin.com/eyecandy/index.aspx Gradient Glow as well as Xenofex: Constellation, also at alienskin.




Open all supplies needed for this tutorial. 600x600 tag.

Add SW_WD_KMS_Papers 8, add mask to paper layer, merge group.

Add SW_WD_KMS_Frame 2, with SW_WD_KMS_Papers 18 as the paper.

Add your tube to the frame and move to where you want it under the frame on the left. Duplicate and drag one tube over the frame. Using your eraser tool, erase portions on the tube that are sticking out that you don't want shown. Drop shadow tubes 1, 1, 80, 5. Duplicate the tube and mirror. Move the tube down to fit on the left side of the frame. Change to overlay. Duplicate that layer to make it a bit darker.

I added the following elements. Resize as necessary and see tag for exact placement:
SW_WD_KMS_Charm 3 to the top left.
SW_WD_KMS_Elements 14 to the bottom left.
SW_WD_KMS_Elements 16 to the bottom centered over the tag.

Add any elements of your choice. Drop shadow elements of choice. Merge any layers you choose together.

Add your text of choice, I used CenteriaScriptDemo font, noise 35 with a 1.0 gold gradient glow, then, Xenofex: Constellation with the following settings:

Then add a regular drop shadow.

Resize tag if desired. Add your copyright at this time.
