True Blood Sookie- PTU

Download this tutorial in a PDF file.
I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Zindy S.D. Nielsen. You can purchase it at her site.
This is a PTU kit called True Blood: Sookie by Pimp’d Designz. Visit her blog for links to her store HERE.
The mask is WSL_Mask353, by Wee Scot Lass.
Font used is TheNautiGal.
