CT TUTORIAL ~ Proud Bitch

NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, originally written December 5, 2013.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice (I used a fun tube called "F You Sky" by Pandora Creations.  you can buy her over at Scraps n Company.)
-- the plugins EyeCandy 4000, MuRa Meister and Tramages.
-- Jazzy's "basic" drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3.
-- accent of choice.  I used a colored feather from a set made by tawny-carlee and shared at an msn group long ago.  you can download the feathers here.
-- template of choice.  the template I used was made by Deb of Creative by Nature.  
-- texture of choice.  I used one by Aqua.  you can find tons over at her blog.
-- mask of choice.  I used a mask by MsKris.
-- font of choice.

Let's create!

1.  Open the template, duplicate, close original.

4.  Choose your accent, resize 50%.   

5.  In your plugins menu, go to Mura Meister Copies and apply the "encircle" default setting.  Use raster deform to fit into pink circle.  Drop this layer under tube.

11. In your plugins menu, apply Mura Meister clouds with the default setting but change bottom color block to black (leave other two white).
