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 :

- Transparency / Eliminate black

- FM tools / Blend emboss

- Mura's seamless / Tile frame

- Graphic plus / Cross shadow

and the material zip down below :

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

*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 tubes of the girl, of the flowers and of the Buddha are by Guismo

You'll be able to find her tubes on Dakara' s site here

and you can join in her sharing group here

 - The brush "Curtain farmestochter 3.PspBrush" is by Farmerstochter

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

Preparation

Duplicate your tubes. Close the originals and minimize the copies for now

- Export your brush in your Psp as a custom brush if you wish to use the brush which is in the zip rather than the curtain psp layer enclosed

- Put the selection in the Selections folder of your Psp files

- Put the "Corel_08_094.jpg" pattern in the pattern folder of your Psp files ( unless you've already got it in your Corel files )
