This tutorial was written using PSP version 7.02 but should work with other versions.
It uses Selections which you can download HERE.
I've also used Eye Candy 4000 but you may be able to just skip the Eye Candy Jiggle step.
I'm assuming you have basic knowledge of the tools in PSP and the use of the layer palette.
Included in the zip is a color guide. Just use your dropper tool to select the colors.
Or chose your own!
Let's get started!
