Thank you for putting a link to this tutorial, whenever you display your realization of that tag on a website, on a group or in a mail !

-----------------------

You'll find some versions of that tag in my gallery HERE

***************

To realize that tag, you'll need the plugins :

- VM Extravaganza,

- Alien skin Eye Candy 5 / Impact, 

- Graphic plus,

- Simple

and the material zip here

**************

*It is forbidden to suppress watermarks on the material provided , to alter, mist or rename the tubes in order to respect the work of the tubers

- The tube of the woman is by Kikirou

You'll be able to get her tubes by joining in her sharing group here

The other elements have been found on the net

******************

Preparation

Duplicate your tubes and mask; close the originals and minimize the copies for now. Export your brush in your psp as a custom brush. Place your selections in your selection file. If your plugin Extravaganza doesn't have the effect Dribble, place my effect in your plugin files . Don't hesitate to come to me if you have any problem with the material !
