PTU Tutorial - Alice

*Supplies*
Scrapkit called Alice by Designs by Joan 
which you can purchase at SATC
Tube of choice - I used a gorgeous one by Ellie Milk 
called Sexy Alice.
You must have a license to used this tube. You can purchase it at PFD.
Spraying Animation by Missy I can't remember what group they are in but their all worth downloading here.
