Steamed - PTU

Click image to see credits and view at full size
I searched high and low for a "Steam Punk" mask and could not find one for my tag.
So I decided to write a tutorial for you and include my mask in the supplies.

Tube:  I am using a Graphic Groupies exclusive tube by Elias Chatzoudis.
You must have earned the rights to use this tube from Graphic Groupies and be issued their license.
Come and join us for some great times!!

Scrap kit:  I am using the gorgeous Steam Punk style kit Guarding Elias by Bello Scarto 
Jay I really enjoyed your kit, and as I said it is perfect for this tube!
I bought mine at Scraps and the City here - I just love that store.

Font: Summertime I am using the TrueType version of the font.

Supplies: I have included my mask (I made today just for this tag) and my sparkle;
you can download here
