Happy Birthday FTU Tutorial


This tutorial was written by me. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is pure coincidence. Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own. It was written in PSP 9 but should be compatible with any version of PSP.

I am using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis. You need a license to use his tubes. I purchased this tube when he was at PTE. You can buy his tubes at his store HERE

I am using the FTU kit Misfit Birthday by Tasha's Playground. You can find the kit HERE
