TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fabulous artwork of Keith Garvey.

The tube I used came with a close up.

You must obtain a license to use his art.

You can find Keith's art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Valentine of Twilight by Rieka Rafita.

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


I used Pea Carrie Script.

I used Photoshop for this tut.


We'll be playing with the Eraser and Blending Options.

Let's have some fun!

Open a canvas, transparent background, 650x650 pixels.

Open RR_Paper11.

Open RR_Frames1.

Center towards top of canvas.

Open RR_Film.

Place this toward the bottom of Frames1.

To make it look like it's behind the bow

Duplicate Frames1 and place this on top of Film.

Stay on the duplicate layer of Frames1.

Now erase the black portion of Frames1 that covers Film.

Resize Paper11 to fit just inside of Frames1 horizontally.

Keep the length from top to bottom.

These are the elements I used:













Resize all elements to your liking

and place where you want.

Click on Paper11.

Using a soft edge eraser

Erase around the elements at the bottom

leaving just a tad of Paper11 showing.

Open your tube.

Place your tube on top of your first Frames1 layer

behind the film.

Click on the copy of Frames1.

Erase where your tube's head is.

Now erase where her arm is.

An easy way to do this is to

move your tube on top of the copy of Frames1.

Now you can see her arm.

Click on copy of Frames1 and erase.

Then move your tube back behind Film.

Grab your close up.

Place her behind your first layer of Frames1.

Click on Frames1.

Grab your magic wand and click inside the frame.

Now click on your close up.

Go to Select in the tool bar.

Click Inverse.

Hit the Delete button on your keyboard.

Go back to Select.

Click Deselect.

Duplicate your close up layer.

Click on first close up layer.

Right click on this layer in the Layer Pallette.

Select Blending Options.

Click Luminosity, 100%.

Click on duplicate layer of close up.

Select Blending Options.

Click Soft Light, 100%.

We're going to place your tube inside the Film now.

Open your tube.

Place it on top of Film

Duplicate it three times.

Hide all layers except the first one.

.Position your first tube layer inside a frame of Film.

Make sure you have it where you want it.

*Click on Film layer.

Grab the magic wand and select one frame of Film.

Click inside that frame.

Click on your first tube layer.

Go to Select.

Click Inverse.

Hit the Delete button on your keyboard.

Go back to Select.

Click on Deselect.*

Now show your second tube layer.

Repeat the above steps marked with *.

Show your third tube layer.

Repeat steps *.

Show your fourth tube layer.

Repeat steps *.

Now for all four tube layers:

Right click on the layer in the layer pallette.

Select Blending Options.

Click Luminosity, 100%.

Place a drop shadow on all elements.

Make a new layer on top of all layers.

Type your name.

Position it where you like.

I used the color black with Stroke, fabae1, outside, 3.


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.

To maintain the layers individually Save As PSD first.

Then rename the sig adding a number or letter

and save as PNG.


I hope you had fun with 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! ♥
