Thank you Kat for another stunning kit!
I fell in love with Francis…lol

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

This kit includes a tube. You must have a license issued through KatNKDA in order to use it.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a transparent 700 X 700 canvas.
Flood Fill white.

First we’re going to make the paper for the mask.
New Rater Layer.
Copy and Paste paper 3 Into Selection.
Copy and paste Element 28 as a new layer and move it up a little.
Copy and paste Element 29 as a new layer.
Resize 40% and move to the bottom left corner.
Duplicate and move to the center.
Merge visible your paper, tree, and fence sections.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.

Copy and paste Element 39 as a new layer.
Resize 25%
Use your Magic Wand and click inside of it and the bigger gaps along the edges.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 2.

New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selections.

Copy and paste Frances Tube (the squirrel) as a new layer above the paper.
Move into position (see my tag for reference).
Lower the Opacity to about 35 or so.
Tap the delete key.

Copy and paste Element 1 as a new layer just above your white canvas.
Resize 50%
Move into position toward the left side of your frame.
Move into position.

Copy and paste the squirrel tube again.
Resize 50%

Element 35: Resize 25% Free rotate left 10 degrees
Element 25: Resize 25% and 40%
Element 4: Resize 25%

    I had a blast doing this tut. I absolutely adore this squirrel tube! So glad I bought it!
    Your tut was easy to follow, although you tag at the top, didn't quite look like mine. LOL
    Do they ever???
    Thanks so much! Keep up making these great tuts! I sure hope most don't use scraps you have to buy to follow your theme in the tut.
