  1. Hi, if you bought this tube from CDO then your copyright is incorrect. While yes it was done by Jessica Galbreth she doesn't go by that name on her art anymore. The proper copyright is ©The Vintage Angel™ www.thevintageangel.com. And yes it has to have the ™ symbol after her name. To do that you type Alt 0153.

    1. Hi Queina,
      You are quite right! Thanks so much for pointing that out to me. I've changed the copyright so it is now correct.
      Much appreciated.
