Feeling Alien-ated

Feeling Alien-ated

This tutorial was written by Jenny on 5-31-2009. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the artwork of Chrissy Clark. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license through Artistic Minds Inc.
You can now purchase her tubes at Creative Design Outlet.
This tutorial is animated but due to the blog preview the animation does not show.

Supplies Needed:
1 Tube of choice
We are Outta Space PTU Scrapkit by Creative Intentionz

On the mask layer, effects, Alien Skin Xenofex 2 Constellation with these settings:
