Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental

You will need:

Font of choice – I used grave digger, found

Scrapkit is another beautiful kit called Oh Dark One by Nika of Devilish Designz.
I haven’t seen any of your kits that I haven’t fallen in love with Nika lol.
Nika’s kits are being sold at SATC. You can purchase them

Tube of choice. I used one by Unholy Vault Designs called Pearl Drops. But then I discovered that you can no longer purchase these tubes L.
