This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.

Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: DD_Template_Beauti-Fall from Dee.
You can find the template here.
* Leave her some love for the template. ;) 

Mask: I didn't use a mask for this tag.
