All the tubes used to realize this tag were created by Azalée
She is only the tuber, the copyright© belongs to the authors of the original images
If you find the « same » tubes elsewhere, it is pure coincidence
because the images she uses are found on the net.
These tubes are for personal use, and not for profit.
Some « decoration » tubes were found on the net,
or received in the following sharing groups, whom she thanks
Beautiful-PSP  -  fantasiadicolori

This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be pure coincidence.
Translator’s note : Azalée works with PSPX6, and I work with PSPX8
but this tutorial can be realized with another version of PSP
