What you will need:

bought from MPT, please do not use without the proper license from MPT!!

Scrap kit - Fab PTU kit Created by Jill, called Gothic Inspirations in honor of Jessica of Gothic Inspirations, which I bought from Just 4 Taggers Store.

Mask of choice, a grungy one works best Very Happy For this version of my tag, I used Becky mask 22.
You can find some great masks on the Creative Misfits Creations blog, that might work well. I'm sorry I forgot which mask I used Sad
