 You must have excellent PSP working knowledge to follow this tutorial.


I used Paint Shop Pro X2 but any version will work.

Tube Kiss from Tezza's Dezignz Tube Art you must purchase at Mystical Scraps

Scrapkit  I Chews You by Wicked Princess I purchased at Designer Scraps

Mask 219 you can download at Gems Taggin' Scraps

Plugin Xero/Porcelain if you have it, If not is fine

Font of choice

Drop Shadow settings I used on most elements are vertical 3, horizontal 3, Opacity 55, Blur 15, Color Black, you can use whatever settings you are acostumed to.  I drop shadow on elements as I paste them.

Always look at tag for reference.

Lets Begin

1. Open a new canvas 750x750(You can resize later).

2. Open Tube, I resized it 342x650px, copy and paste onto to canvas.  Place her as in tag.

3. Open barbwired frame, copy and paste onto canvas and place it behind tube to the upper left as in tag.  Rotate 15 degrees left. With the magic wand click in center of frame to select it, then go to Selections-Expand 3px.

4. Open paper 13, copy and paste onto canvas.  Go to Selections-Invert and then press delete key.  Now drag the paper under frame.

5. Again with the magic wand click the center of frame to select it and again go to Selections-Expand 3px.  Go to the tube, click on the closeup layer of the tube.  Go to Image-Free Rotate and rotate 30 degrees to the left. Copy and paste it onto tag canvas and place over frame so the face shows on the left side.  See tag for reference.  Go to Selections-Invert and press delete key and drag the closeup face under frame.

6. Stay on the closeup face layer. On Blend Mode use Luminance Legacy then go to Plugins Xero-Porcelain(if you don't have it it's fine) and use the settings already there. 

7. Open Icy Drips 6.  Rotate 15 degrees left.  Copy and paste over closeup tube inside the frame as in tag.

Open Fancyvine.  Resize 650x173px.  Rotate left 90 degrees.  Copy and paste, place as in tag to the left side over frame and under bow.  Layers/Duplicate.  Image/Mirror and place duplicate to the right as in tag.  Duplicate again, rotate 90 degrees left and place as in tag.  Duplicate again and flip, place as in tag.

10. Open Bleeding Heart.  Resize 200x174px.  Copy and paste, place to the right as in tag.
