This tutorial was written by Jenny on 9/26/2012. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the licensed artwork of Eugene Rzhevskii. This is an Exclusive tube that can be purchased at PicsForDesign (PFD).

Scrapkit of choice (I'm using Hocus Pocus FTU by Chaney Jo)
