TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fab artwork of Verymany.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: GothyCheekyVal by Jennys Designz.
This is a FTU kit. You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used ManyWeatz.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Let's have some fun!
Open a canvas, transparent background, 600x600 pixels.

Open Frame03.
Center on canvas.
Open Frame04.
Center on top of Frame03.
Put an Outer Glow on this layer.
(Doing this will help you see it as you build your tag.)
Open Fan.
Resize to 30%.
Place behind Frame03.
Use my tag as a a guide for placement.

Open Bow2.
Resize to 75%.
Place on top of Frame04.
Open Boot.
Place over to the right of the frames.
Open your tube.
Duplicate it and hide one layer for now.
Resize ONE tube layer to 50%.
Place where you like.
To make her look like she's leaning on the boot:
Duplicate the tube layer that you reduced to 50%.
Place this layer behind the boot.
Highlight the other 50% tube layer.
Erase your tube where her legs are covering up the boot.
(Don't worry about any mistakes in erasing.
That's why you have a tube layer under the boot.)

Open Barbedwire.
Place this behind your top 50% tube layer
and on top of the boot.
See that?
It looks like the barbed wire is wrapped around the tube.
Cool, huh? LOL!

Behind the boot and on top of the frames
I used these elements:
Black Lace Corset
Resize 40%.
Ruffle Ribbon
Resize to 75%.

Duplicate this layer and hide one layer for later.
Resize ONE layer to 10%.
Duplicate the 10% layer and resize to 80%.
You now have three flower2 layers:
One hidden at original size.
One at 10%.
And that layer duplicated and resized to 80%.
(The different sizes gives it a more unique look.)

Resize 40%.
Resize 45%, Flip Horizontally.

Open Feather(2).
Place behind boot and rotate just a little.
Open Feather.
Rotate this slighty and place on top of feather(2).
Go to the rectangle box in the upper left corner of your layer palette.
It should say Normal.
Click on the down arrow.
When a window pops up,
Click on Soft Light.
Leave Opacity at 100%.
(That's right next to the rectangle box you just clicked.)
Now duplicate your Feather layer.
Flip this Horizontally.
Move this over so it's behind the Corset.
Go back up to that rectangle box.
Click the down arrow.
Select Normal.
Set Opacity to 65%.

Ok. Remember that tube layer you hid?
We're gonna play with it now. LOL!
Unhide the tube and move it down the layer palette.
Place it under Frame03.
No need to resize.
Position her face to your liking.
Now highlight Frame03 layer.
Grab your magic wand and click inside the circle frame.
Highlight tube layer.
Go to your toolbar and click Select.
Choose Inverse and click.
Hit the Delete button on your keyboard.
Go back to Select and click Deselect.
Duplicate the tube layer you just did.
With the duplicated tube layer still highlighted:
Go to your toolbar.
Click Image.
When a drop down menu shows up,
Go to Adjustments.
Another drop down menu will appear.
Find Black & White and click it.
Now you will only see the black & white tube layer.
That's ok.
Still on this layer,
Grab an eraser.
Erase the black & white tube's hair.
Look at that!

Open Sparkles.
I placed this on top of everything
except the top 50% tube layer.
Position where you like.
I placed this in the lower left corner.
Then I duplicated it,
Flipped it Horizontally
and placed it in the upper right corner.

Now go grab the Flower2 layer you hid.
Move this down behind everything.
Resize to 25%.
Move over to upper left corner.
Duplicate this layer.
I flipped this Vertically.
Move it over to upper right corner.

Now for drop shadows.
We're gonna do this the easy way.
Go to your 50% tube layer that's UNDER the boot.
Place a drop shadow.
While this layer is highlighted,
Right Click.
Select Copy Layer Style from the menu that shows up.
Go to the layer you want a drop shadow on and
Just highlight the layer and Right Click.
Select Paste Layer Style
then do go on to the next layer.
Easy Peasy...
Put your drop shadow on these layers:
Flower2 (all these layers)
Ruffle Ribbon

Some of the layers blend in together because they are so dark.
To make them stand out,
I placed an Outer Glow and Drop Shadow on them.
Once you apply these effects to one layer,
You can Right Click
Copy Layer Style
and then Paste Layer Style on the other layers.
These are the layers I did this too:
Rose 1
Black Lace Corset

Make a new layer on top of all layers.
Type the name you want in the font you want.
I used Black, Stroke, 3, Outside, feb4e8.

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.

Save as PSD to maintain layers.
Then save as PNG, remembering to use a number behind your sig title.
I hope you had fun with this tut!

  1. Gorgeous tut, thank you for sharing your talents. Jean.


♥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! ♥
