PTU Irish Festival PTU


This tutorial was written by me Sharon/Fairygem on the 8th March 2015 and is all my own creation. Any resemblance to other tutorials is purely coincidental and not intended. This tutorial is for a Forum Set and Tag, I will be starting with the tag then onto the forum set. Please be patient with the length of this tutorial but the end results will hopefully make it all worthwhile.

For this tutorial you will need:-
Paint Shop Pro I am using PSPX5 but any version will work
Tube of Choice I am using the awesome artwork of Barbara Jensen for which you need to have a license to use her artwork. You can get her work HERE
Scrapkit of Choice I am using a wonderful kit called Irish Festival by Ginnibug Designz. You can buy this kit HERE
Mask of Choice I am using a beautiful mask by Gem Gemsmask 16 which you can find HERE
Font of Choice I am using Aquarelle which you can get HERE

Mura Meister Copies
Eye Candy 5 Impact Gradient Glow
Andrews Filter 56 Block Out
