Love Forever- FTU

Download a PDF file of this tutorial.
I've used the lovely PTU artwork of Zindy Nielsen.
This is a FTU kit called Love Forever from Pimp’d Designz and is available through the Taggers Art Magazine May Issue.
I used a modified mask by Tempus Fugit. You can get the modified version HERE.
