15 Open your tube of choice in psp.
16 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer.

23 Do the same thing with the beautiful butterflies. Use your picktool to give some of them an angle of choice.
24 When your satisfied, give them the same dropshadow.
25 Use a fancy font and write down your name. I used a dark blue color for the foreground and a pink/red color from the tube for the background. I wanted the name to stand out.
26 Layers/Convert to a raster layer.
27 Give it a dropshadow or go to Plugins/Eyecandy4000/Gradient Glow, with a light color and the glow width set to 5.
