Sweet Tease (PTU)

This tutorial was written by me on February 2nd 2012, and is
entirely my own work.
Any resemblance to other tutorials/designs on the net is
purely conincidental.
Please do not rip this tutorial apart or claim it as your own work.

This tutorial is done in PSP 9 but maybe done in other versions as 
well. A basic understanding of the program and it's tools is needed.


Tube of choice .. I am using the sweet tube by Elias Chatzoudis called 

Strawberry Tease (Limited Edition Tube) at PSP Tubes Emporium.You can

The kit is a PTU Kit by A Space Between called SUMMER BERRIES. You can 
find the kit here
