Click on image to see larger version

I created this tut in PSPX4 (14) but it can be done
with any version of PSP. This is an easy tutorial
with not much to do, just take your time.

You will need:
A St Pat's tube - I used one of ©Zlate_M tubes
You need to be a registered member of PicsForDesign to purchase her tubes
Template #132 from Amy & Leah's Gumtastic Tuts
Mask #30 from InsatableDreams Masks - Masks 3
Scrapkit called ''Pattie's Love'' from ScrappityScraps&More
Font I used is called "Bookworm" from SimplyTheBest Fonts
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy4000-GradientGlow - for name
Xero-Porcelain - for tube
Drop Shadow throughout the tutorial is:
4/4/100/20.00 - Dark colour from your tube

Open up the tube you will be using, also open up template #132
Click SHIFT D to copy the template - close off the original template.
Open Mask #30 & minimise
Delete the Credits layer on the template & make the bottom layer (BG) active
Go to Image-Canvas Size with these settings

We will resize at the end of the tutorial
**Select 3 papers from scrapkit for the template layers.
I used papers - 1/20/12**
Still with the bottom layer active - copy & paste on of the papers as a new layer.
**You can colourize to suit your tube**
New Mask Layer-From Image with these settings

Merge Group
Resize the Mask layer 90% Bicubic-all layers unchecked.

Make Circle 2 layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat - copy & paste one of the papers
as a new layer - Selections-Invert, hit delete. Selections-None. Apply the drop shadow.
Continue the above for all the template layers, using different papers as you go, remembering
to add the drop shadow.

When you get to Square 1 layer - after you have applied the paper, make the Frame 3 layer active
Select All-Float-Defloat-Flood Fill tool-Foreground Colour to match your tube, Flood Fill with colour.
Do the same for Frame 2. Add drop shadows to the frames.

Make Circle 1 layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat, paste one of the papers as a new layer,
Selections-Invert, hit delete. Keep inverted selected - copy & paste your tubes as a new layer,
positiong it in the centre, when happy, hit delete. Selections-None. You can now add the Xero-
Porcelain effect to the tube if you like to tone it down a little.

Make Frame 1 layer active - Select All-Float-Defloat, Flood Fill with your foreground colour.
Selections-None. Add drop shadow.

Delete Words Back 2 & 3. Merge Down Words 1 & 2. Select All-Float-Defloat, Flood Fill with Black.
Selections-None - Effects-Plugin Filters-Eyecandy4000-GradientGlow - Glow Width 4.50, all the rest
of the settings in Basic the default - Colur - the foreground colour you have from your tube, set at Medium.

Now, you can add any of the elements from the scrapkit as you like. Remember to add the drop shadow to them as
you go along.

When you have done that - add your name & correct copyright. Add the EC-GradientGlow to your name.
Cross out the eyes on the bottom layer (white) - Merge Visible all other layers. Click COPY & Paste as
a New Image on your workspace. Your merged image should now have a transparent background.
Resize to your liking - I resized mine 90% Bicubic-all layers CHECKED. Save as a *Png image
