Topsy Turvy Alice



In this tutorial I have used the art of Suzanne Woolcott.
A license is required to use Suzanne's work,
which I purchased from AMI.
Suzanne now sells her tubes/licenses independently, you can get them here.

I used a fabulous free to use scrap kit by Kirsty called Chess Queen
which you can get here.

I used the font 3 grammes 5 which is a free to use font.

You will also need a mask of your choice.
