Snaggable versions of this tag in my Fotki album

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Pinup Toons-Individual Tube 206-1 which you need a license to use.

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
