This tutorial was written by me on June 13th, 2015 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using the art of Elias Chatzoudis. I purchased this tube when he was with PSP Tubes Emporium, which is now closed. You can now purchase his tubes here.

PTU kit from BLT Dezignz called Citrus Bleu. You can purchase this kit here.

Mask 9 by HorsePlay’s Pasture. You can find it here.

Font of choice. I am using Vanessa Loves You.

On your frame layer, click inside your frame using your magic wand tool. Selections, modify, expand by 5. Open PP1 & resize by 17%. Paste as a new layer. Selections, invert & press delete. Deselect. Move this layer below your frame layer.

Next we will add our elements, which will all be above your frame layer:
