Swag In The City




Swag In The City
written 2/26/2016

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies I have used. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.

Supplies Used:


Matching scrap kit by Mariel Designs and you can purchase it at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=17726

Mask of your choice. I am using mask #424 by Vix. You can get her awesome masks at http://www.freewebs.com/vixpsp/

Font of your choice. I am using Bromello. You can download it at http://www.fontspace.com/alit-design/bromello
