♥Bite Me PTU♥

Here is what we will be making :
**This tutorial was written & posted on May 26th 2011**
***Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & completely unintentional!!**
This tutorial is written for those that have basic knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.
 Supplies Needed :

Paint Shop Pro X2 (Any version should work)
Tube of choice - I used the amazing artwork of Ismael Rac , I purchased my tube when he was at AMI, which is no longer open, but you can purchase Ismael's work at his store XERACX
Scrapkit  - Bite Me By Angel's Designz
Template - By Missy @ Divine Intentionz  (second template in the post)

Plugins Used :
Eye Candy 5 Imapact - Gradient Glow (Optional)
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass (Optional)

Font Used :
Whoa!
Size : 60 Pixels
Color : #f83cfb

Elements Used :
(These are not listed in any specific order, however if you would like to open them all at once & do not know how, just open your kit folder, click on the first element you would like to open, then before clicking open, press & hold your Ctrl key on your keyboard, & continue to click each element that you want or need to open. Then click Open, then they will all open one after the other. It is much easier than going to your folder each time you want to open a new element :-) Hope this helps!
