Fluent Sarcasm - Forum Set








Fluent Sarcasm – Forum Set
written 5/2/2016

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

Supplies Used:

Tube is by Lysisange. This tube is part of a wonderful collab at Scraps N Company. All you have to do is spend $12.50 at the store and you can get this collab as a free gift. Lots of great goodies in it. Check out the collab at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=587_144&products_id=19502

Scrap Kit is by Design By Joan. It is also part of the above collab.
