Extract and save the Butterflies.shapes to your Presets Shapes folder.

Save the GoldPatterns to My Documents\My PSP Files\Patterns folder

Extract and save the SuperBladePro Presets,,
goldchristmas, ks_gemstones presets and ks_gemstones bitmaps,
to your Plugins/SBP-Presets folder.
for Win XP pro is:
C:\Programmi\JascSoftwareInc\PaintShopPro 9\Plug-in\FlamingPear\SuperBladePro\environments and textures

Set the foreground to White
and the Background to GoldPatterns

Remember to save often.

Let's Begin!!

1 - Open a new image 300x300 px, transparent background;
Raster background checked; Color depth 16 million colors

Open the PresetShape tool

pick out the SK Butterfly 09.PspShape

and with the GoldPattern setting (the foreground null),
draw your butterfly

Be Careful!!. If you like having my same result,
you have to draw your butterfly a little small.
I have done it big too, but in my opinion the result is not good.
In any case I use this settings:

Layers - Convert to Raster Layer

Selections - Select al
Selections - Float - Defloat

Effects - Plugins - SuperBladePro
click as below:

on the above window you have to look for goldchristmas folder
so click on lizs_christmasgold.q5q

Follow the directions
and when you have to apply the bitmap texture required
click OK

Keep Selected!!

Selections - Modify - Contract 3 pixel

Press the Delete Key

Selections - Promote Selection to Layer
Selections - Modify - Expand 1 pixel
Keep Selected!!

2 - Add New Raster Layer
and with the foreground White active
fill the selection. Layers - Arrange - Move Down

Keep Selected!!

Open again SuperBladePro,
now you have to look for ks_gemstones presets folder
click to ks_gemstone emerald.q5q
Follow the directions and apply the bitmap texture required

Be Careful!
There are 2 folders for gemstones presets, that is:
ks_gemstones presets folder and ks_gemstones bitmaps folder
so you can close the presets and open the bitmaps folder
to look for the texture required

when you have applied texture click OK

Note: I used the Emerald preset because it is easier to colorize,
but you can use what you like!

3 - Selections - Modify - Contract 15 pixel

In any case you have to contract the selection
till to obtain the one as the screen below:

Press the Delete Key
Selections - Promote Selection to Layer
and with the foreground White active
fill the selection.

Keep Selected!!

Open again SuperBladePro,
and apply again ks_gemstone emerald.q5q

Be Careful!!
If you draw a big butterfly,
you have to repeat the last step till to eliminate
the greendark colour in the selection.

Layers - Merge Down

Below is what you have to obtain

Now before you merge your jewel to the gold border,
if you like you can colorize it using:
Hue and Saturation - Colorize

When you have finished your colorizing, go to
Layers - Merge Visible

and save as .pspimage

Below you can see the big result of the same settings
of the tutorial(resized to 80%)

I try to change the Radius in my settings
from 15 to 50, but I don't like much.
Below my result:


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
