♥ Supplies Used ♥
Tube of choice is from Arthur Crowe, which was purchased while PTE was open. He still sells some tubes here.
Font of Choice: I used Got that bling NF by Nick Curtis & Al Mack for my name (here) and Bell MT for my license tag.
Scrap Kits: (FTU) "It’s Christmas" by Designs by Samantha, which you can find here.
Mask: “Mask 6” by delicious Scraps, which you can find here.
♥ Plugins used ♥
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Lokas 3D Shadow
FYI: I save after each layer is added AND I rename my layers as I go. In this way, I never lose a section due to loss of electric/computer memory and I know where I am if I do.
