Plugins:

  • <I.C.NET Software> - Filters Unlimited 2.0 Paper Textures - Striped Paper, Fine
  • Alien Skin -Eye Candy 5 - Impact Perspective Shadow

 

 

Preparations:

You will need a main tube to compliment your work colors

  • Open all files in PSP, duplicate and minimize to tray. Close the originals.

 

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is an easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back

 

 

Colors:

     
#c54c6f #dfb5c1 #fadae3 #ffffff #000000      

Note: When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #c54c6f

Color Palette: Set your Foregroundcolor to Foreground/Background Gradient (Corel_06_029) - Style: Radial
