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  -  C-Josy-Partages  -  UnMondodi

This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be pure coincidence.
Azalée uses PSP X6 ; I use PSP X7, but this tutorial can be realized with other versions
