Do not copy, rip apart or claim as your own work.
This tutorial was done in PSP 9 but should work in all versions.
This tube is by Ed van der Linden called BABE 02 and is available at the PSP Project
Kit is called Summer Loving by Sam's Scraps and is part of the Starter Pack at the PSP Project
Filters - Xero Fritillary, Eye Candy Gradient Glow & HSB Noise & Glass, PentaCom Dot & Cross
Fonts - Pussycat Snickers and AL Script Hand
Open a 650 x 650 transparent canvas.
Using your preset shape - draw out an oval/circle with a color that matched your tube.
Apply Eye Candy HSB Effect - default settings, only altering the Width and Height to approx 100. Choose Random seed until you get the hue pattern you like.
Now go to Effects/Texture Effects/Blinds - and apply settings as below
Apply a Gradient Glow - FAT and then Medium in a color of your choice.
Back to your Preset Tool Shape.
Choose a color from your tube - and draw out a rectangle - check my tag for size guides.
Apply PentaCom Dot and Cross effect - default settings.
Add the same Gradient Glows that you applied to the oval/circle.
Once again - Preset Tool shape and draw out a small circle - check my tag once again.
Duplicate and Mirror, then merge layer down.
Apply HSB Noise to these small circles, and same Blinds effect, but untick the Horizontal box.
Copy and paste your tube - resizing to taste - and place over one of your circles.
Duplicate and mirror, then merge layer down.
Choose your Magic Wand ... and move back to the small circle layer, and click anywhere outside the circles - the marching ants should now be showing up. Move back to tube layer, and hit delete. Your tubes are now trimmed and sitting perfectly on your circles.
Change Blend to Luminance Legacy, lower Opacity to 62.
Merge this layer down - your circle and tube layers are now 1 layer.
Add Gradient Glow if desired.
Preset Tool once again - this time using the Rectangle shape.
Draw out a small rectangle in your color of choice - check my tag for sizing.
Apply HSB Noise if desired and then Xero Fritillary with these settings
Add Gradient Glow as before.
