A little different

By © Purplechick Creations Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.
This tut uses PSPX2 but can be used with other versions.
Please do not share this or place on another website.


* Scrapkit a little different by ASB . It's a FTU kit and you find it at the site I linked. I used the taggers size.
* A few tubes of your choice, I used three tubes from Suzanne Woolcott, I bought at AMI, the shop closed and you can buy them at Suzanne's own site now. Please don't use without a license!
* A font of choice, I used Jellyka western princess, I love those fonts, they all are wonderful and free to use.
* Optional, Eyecandy/gradient glow.( I used it to glow the name but it's not necessary for the tut)

Remember to save often :-) Have fun!!
