Click on image to see larger version

At the time I created this tutorial, all tubes, scrapkits, etc were
in working links. Sorry if the links no longer work
With scrapkits, if the link or site is missing, choose a similar scrapkit

I created this tut in PSPX1 (11) but it can be done
with any version of PSP. You need to have a good understanding of
your PSP program to do this tutorial

You will need:
A standing tube - I used one of Gennady Koufay lovely tubes
You need to be a registered member of CDO
to purchase his tubes, but any standing tube will do.
Scrapkit called 'New Beginning' from Puddicat Creations
(2nd scrapkit down)
Mask #329 from WeeScotsLass Creations
Font I used is called "BeachmanScript" from SimplyTheBest Fonts

New white canvas 800x700

Open Mask #329 up & minimise it.
New raster layer - Select All
Copy & paste a paper from scrapkit into selection - Selections-None.

Merge Group - resize Mask Layer 90%SmartSize-all layers unchecked.

Copy & paste one of the Frames from scrapkit that will suit your tube, as a new layer.

Add this drop shadow to the frame & your tube

your tube.
