 Supplies needed for this Tutorial:

A tube of your own choice 

This lovely tube that Snakelady used, is from Joe Pekar.

Let's start!

Open the Supplies in PSP.

 New Image : 600 x 600 White.
 Choose 2 colors from your tube or graphic.
 I chose #ff0000 (Foreground) and #da32b7 (Background)
 Change your Foreground to Gradient : Linear, Angel 45 and Repeats : 1.
 Copy (backpigtail.jpg) and Paste as a New Layer.
 Move it to the left side.
 Selections - Select All - Selections - Float
 Selections - Modify - Select Selection Borders:


Layers - New Raster Layer.

Floodfill the Selection with your Gradient.

Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow: 0-2-70-8 Black

Selections - Select None.

Copy your tube and Paste as a New Layer.

Move downwards and to the side.

Add the same Drop Shadow.
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow: 0-2-70-8 Black

If you are using the same tube that I am using, do the following:

* Lock the visibility layer of the tube.

* Activate Raster 1 (the layer with the backpigtail.jpg)

* With your Magic Wand, select part of the purple branch.

* Make the tube layer visible again and activate it.

* Press Delete.

* Selections - Select None.

The above steps depend on the kind of tube your are using.

Add your name or text and add the same Drop Shadow.

Layers - Merge - Merge All (Flatten).

Add the copyright of the artist (if you used a copyrighted or paid tube).

Add your watermark.
