TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fabulous artwork of Elias Chatzoudis.

The tube I used came with a close up.

You must obtain a license to use his art.

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

SCRAPKIT: Bad Girls by Designs by Ali.

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


I used Splendid ES.

I used Photoshop for this tut.


We'll be playing with Noise and Blending Options.

If you don't want to animate

Skip the parts marked **BLUE**.

Let's have some fun!

Open a canvas, white background, 650x650 pixels.

Your background can be transparent if you are not animating.

Open Paper5.

Center on canvas.

Set the Opacity to 50% in your layer palette.

Open ChainFencing2.

Center on canvas.

Open Boarder3.

Resize to 45%.

Center and place this at the top of your siggy.

Duplicate this layer.

Place the dup at the bottom of your taggie.

You have just built your frame.

Open your tube.

Place her where you want her.

(We'll use the close up in a bit.)

**With this layer highlighted,

Grab the magic wand to the left of the screen.

Holding the Shift button down on your keyboard,

Randomly click on the gray areas of the boa.

(If you accidentally click on the black,

just go to Edit in your toolbar and click Step Backward.

Then press the Shift key again, hold down,

and continue clicking the gray areas with your magic wand.)

When you're happy with this

Go to Edit and click Copy.

Go to Edit again and click Paste.

You'll now see a new layer in the layer palette.

Name this layer boa1.

Duplicate boa1 twice.

Highlight the first boa1 layer.

Go to Filter in your toolbar.

When the drop down menu appears

click Noise, Add Noise.

In this window, do the following:

Check Uniform, uncheck Monochromatic

First layer of boa1: Noise 20

Second layer of boa1: Noise 25

Third layer: Noise 30**

Now for the elements!

Behind your tube and Boarder3, I placed these elements:

Drape3, centered resize to 50%.

Cage, over to the lower left a bit.

Tag2, resize 50%

Place it so it frames your tube's head.

Badge1, resize 30%

Rotate slightly and place next to Tag2.

Open KissLips2.

Use my siggie as a guide for placement.

Open your close up tube.

Position her inside KissLips2.

Highlight the KissLips2 layer.

Grab your magic wand over there to the left.

Hold the Shift key down on your keyboard.

Start clicking the inside of the lips.

Do not click the open part in the center.

Do this until all of the KissLips2 has marching ants around it.

Now highlight your close up tube layer.

Go up in your tool bar and click Select.

In the drop down menu,

Click Inverse.

Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.

Go back and click Select again.

In the drop down menu,

Click Deselect.

You will now see your close up tube inside the lips

with nothing hanging outside.

Keep your close up tube layer highlighted.

Right click this layer in the layer palette.

A window will pop up.

Look for Blending Options.

Click that.

These are the settings I used:

Blending Options: Screen 40%

Fill Opacity: 100%

Channels: check R, G, B

Knockout: None

Check:Blend Clipped Layers as Group

and Transparency Shapes Layer.

Blend If: Gray

This Layer: 0, 255

Underlying Layer: 0, 255

Click OK.

Your close up tube now blends into the lips.

Now for the rest of the elements:

Place these wherever you want.

Bow2, resize 20%

Gun1, resize 25%:

Duplicate, flip horizontally, placed in upper corners.

Bow3, resize 20%

Duplicate two times.

Place one on each gun and one on cage.

For the lower part of my tag

I used these elements:

Brad2, resize 65%

Corset1, resize 35%

Boots2, resize 30%, duplicate.

Padlock1, resize 25%

NeckChoker2, resize 15%

I erased a little bit of this so the key of the padlock shows.

NaughtyBook1, resize 35%

HandCuffs1, resize 25%

Flower4, resize 15%

Flower1, resize 15%

I placed a drop shadow on everything


Boader3 (both layers)



Close up tube

Now go grab a random eraser.

Hightlight Paper5 layer.

Randomly erase around the edges.

Make a new layer on top of all layers.

Type your name.

Position it where you like.

You can use the eyedopper tool to select a color.

I clicked inside Tag2 for the color, fcdefd.

With your name layer highlighted,

Go to Layers in your toolbar.

Drop down menu:

Click Bevel & Emboss.

These are the settings I used:

Style: Inner Bevel

Technique: Smooth

Depth: 100%

Direction: Up

Size: 5

Soften: 0

Angle: 74%

Check Use Global Light

Altitude: 30%

**Duplicate your name two times.

Right click your first name layer.

Click Rasterize Type in the new window that pops up.

Do this for the next two name layers.

Highlight your first name layer.

Go to Filter in your toolbar.

When the drop down menu appears

Check Uniform and Monochromatic.

First name layer: Noise 30

Second name layer: Noise 35

Third name layer: Noise 40**

Still with the first name layer highlighted,

Go to Layers in the toolbar.

Click on Stroke.

I used:

Outside, 2

color: d920d2

Blending Mode: Normal

Opacity: 100%

Click OK.

Go back to Layers in the toolbar.

Click Outerglow.

Blend Mode: Screen

Opacity: 75%

Spread: 0

Size: 5

Range: 50%

Jitter: 0

**With this layer still highlighted,

Right click and click on Copy Layer Style.

Highlight the second name layer.

Right click.

Click Paste Layer Style.

Do this again for your third name layer.**


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.

If you are not animating

Save like this:

To maintain the layers individually Save As PSD first.

Then rename the sig adding a number or letter

and save as PNG.



Go to Windows in the toolbar.

Click Animation.

Set the time in the amination frame for .1.

You will need four frames.

Show all layers of your sig in each frame


For your boa1 and name layers, do this:

In the first frame:

Show only the first layers of boa1 and name.

Second frame: Show only second layers of both.

Third frame: Only show third layers of both.

Fourth layer: Show only second layers of both.

Hit the Play button and view your animation.

If you like it, you're done!

Save as PSD.

Then under File,

Hit Save for Web and Devices.

That's it!

You're done!

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.♥
