Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Pure Love. Please duplicate and close original tubes. I have used the plugin Penta.com/color dot and PSP effects in this tutorial. Place the ArasimagesInnerBevel in your PSP/Presets folder. Export the agi_purelove brush in your PSP Brushes folder. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions. I have used PSPX6 for this tutorial but other versions may be used.

Thanks go to Roby2765 for her lovely lady used in this tutorial.
