TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the beautiful artwork of Steve Baier.

You must purchase a license to use his art.

You can find his art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: My Angel by Rieka Rafita.

This is a PTU kit. You can find it HERE.

FILTER: dsb flux

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Champange.

I used Photoshop for this tut.


In this tut we'll be doing some sparklies.

If you don't wish to animate, just skip the steps marked ** in BLUE**.

Open a canvas, white background, 650x650 pixels.

Open RR_Frames4. Center it on white background.

Open RR_Paper16. Rotate it just a bit.

Click on Frames4 layer.

Now grab your magic wand tool and click on the inside of your frame.

Click on Paper16 layer.

Go to Select, click Inverse.

Hit the Delete button on your keyboard.

Go back to Select, click on Deselect.

These are the elements I used on top of the frame:












Resize the elements to fit and place wherever you wish.

I duplicated the layers:






After duplicating these, I flipped them horizontally.

After placing your charm where you'd like,

resize the Butterfly to fit inside the charm.

Place your tube on top of everything.

Resize to fit.

Go ahead and put your dropshadow on all layers.

We will build a border now.

Open RR_Glittertrail.

Place this at the top of your siggy.

Duplicate this layer and place it at the bottom.


Flip this third layer of Glittertrail 90 Counter Clockwise.

Place on the left edge of your siggy.


Flip your fourth layer horizontally.

Place on the right edge of your siggy.

Now merge duplicated layers of Glittertrail down

so you have one layer that forms the border.

Place the border layer behind Frame4.

Open RR_Sparkle1 and RR_Sparkle3.

Place these on top of your siggy.

Make a new layer on top of all layers.

Type the name you want in the font you want.

I used Champange.

I colored the font bright pink, f991d1.

I also used Stroke, a deep pink: d42498, 2, Outside.

Size it to fit and position where you like.


You must now do this:

Put the artist's name, website, and your license number

of the tube you used on the siggy!!

Add your name (ie: Designed by Your Name) behind this info.

Make sure this info is legible and clearly seen.

Resize your sig to your liking.

If you do not wish to animate

Use only one Sparkle element.

Save as PNG.

You're Done!


Duplicate the Glittertrail border once.

Click on the first layer of your border.

Apply dsb flux filter, 30 mix.

Click on the second layer of the border.

Apple dsb flux, 31, mix.

Hide the second layer of your border.

Hide the Sparkle3.

Open your animation window.

Duplicate the first frame.

You will only have two frames of animation.

Hide Sparkle1 and the first layer of the border.

Set animation time at .2 seconds.

Hit Play.

If everything is to your liking

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.


I hope you enjoyed this tut!

♥Tribute to Rieka♥

To honor Rieka and all she has blessed me with, I will be leaving all my tuts that I have written with her kits on my blog. They are not coming down. Even though her kits are no longer available, the tuts I wrote using them are my tribute to her. Hopefully, they will inspire you the way Rieka inspired me. Love You, Rieka! You'll be forever in my heart.♥

About Me

My Photo
Hi Ya'll! I'm Savage and I'd like to welcome you to Redneck Tuts. These are not your ordinary tuts, as they are geared toward those of us that don't have "working knowledge" of Photoshop or PSP. My tuts are all done in PS. They are designed to show you different techniques that you may not know. I hope you learn something that you can use in your creations in the future. Please, just have fun and put your own spin on these tuts. Be original and shine! Love Ya! ♥
