Let's get started.

1.  Open up the bcs blue quick page in PSP then reduce size to 15% by going to
"Image" , "Resize" "15%" all layers CHECKED

2. 
Take your magic wand tool and
click inside the frame until you have marching ants
The best settings I found to do this with are as follows;
(see print screen below)
Mode: Add(shift), Match mode: RGB Value, Tolerance: 102, Contiguous checked, Feather: 0, Anti-alias checked, Inside

3. 
"Selections", "Modify", "Expand" and choose "20"

4.  "Layers", "New Raster Layer" and with your flood fill tool fill with color
#51c1d5.

5.  "Effects - Texture Effects-Blinds"  and use the settings I've shown below


6.  On your layer palette move this layer BELOW your frame
layer

7.  "Layers", "New Raster Layer" and with your flood fill tool fill with color #847da1

8.  "Effects - Texture Effects-Blinds"  and use the same as before except check the box "Horizontal" as well. 

9.  Open up the tube in PSP and "edit", "copy" then on your main canvas "edit", "paste as new layer"  then "Image", "Mirror" move the tube into the centre of the frame. Activate your eraser tool and erase the bottom of the tube and on the left side where it overlaps the outside of the frame. What you're trying to do is make it look like she's coming out fo the frame.  When I erase I reduce the opacity of the tube layer in the layer palette so you can see through to the frame below so you know where to erase.  Once you're happy put the opacity of the tube layer back up to 100%.  I added a drop shadow to my tube layer as well but this is optional
(see my sample below as to what I have now)


10.  Open up the wordart in PSP and "edit", "copy" then on your main canvas "edit", "paste as new layer" and move it down and to the left side under your tube frame layer.  "Selections", "Select all", "Float", "Defloat", then "Selections", "Modify - expand", choose "2" pixels.

11.  Add a new layer by going to "Layers", "New Raster Layer" and flood fill it with whiteMove this layer BELOW your wordart layer. In your layers palette Right click on your top wordart layer and "Merge down"  Give it a drop shadow of choice then
"Selections", "Select None".
(see what mine looks like in the print screen below)


12.  With your text tool choosing color white #000000 add you name (I used Brush Script size 16).  Right click on your name layer in the layers palette and "convert to raster layer" and move your name to where you'd like it.  I moved it to the right of my wordart.

13.  I did the same thing to my name as I did to my wordart.  "Selections", "Select all", "Float", "Defloat", then "Selections", "Modify - expand", choose "2" pixels.  Add a new layer by going to "Layers", "New Raster Layer" and flood fill it with whiteMove this layer BELOW your name layer. In your layers palette Right click on your top name layer and "Merge down"  Give it a drop shadow of choice the
"Selections", "Select None".

14.  Add your copyright information and your watermark, save as a "png" file and

YOU'RE ALL DONE
