This tutorial was written using PSP9

Supplies needed:


Objecten.PspShape

I don't remember where I grab these shapes, but © belong to the artist




Settings

Extract and save the Objecten.PspShape to your Preset Shapes folder

Set your Foreground to null
and Background to #613c1f color

Remember to save often.


Let's begin!!

or a little tag with the name of your TelefonProvider
using shapes as in the image below



Apply the same settings using for the Text
