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

SCRAPKIT:  Pretty Rock Girl by Pimp'd Designz.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Edwardian Script ITC

I used Photoshop for this tut.
We're gonna play with a mask.
Don't worry.
It's easy!

Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 600x600, transparent background.

Open pd-mask.
Center on canvas.
Open pd-pp-09.
Place below mask.
Highlight your mask layer.
Press the CTRL key on your keyboard.
While holding that key down
Click the mask icon in the layer palette.
(Not the “eye”, you want to click the actual
icon that is a picture of your mask.)
You should see 'marching ants.'
Now highlight your paper layer.
Click the mask button at the bottom of your layer palette.
(This is a square with a circle inside it.)
Mask your mask layer invisible.

Now open pd-frame-06.
Place this behind your new mask.
Open pd-wire.
Resize to 90%.
Center on mask layer.
Open pd-frame-02.
Resize to 75%
Rotate to your liking.
You can use my tag as a guide.

Open your tube.
Duplicate it and hide one layer.
(You will use this layer later.)
Position your tube inside frame-02.
Erase your tube where covers the frame
except for the skirt.
So you would erase the top half of your tube
and the legs that cover the frame.

Open ps-keys.
Resize to 80%.
Position this how you like.
Again, you can use my tag as a guide.

Open ps-music-notes.
Center so it lines up with frame-06.

Open pd-frame-01.
Center at bottom of canvas.
We are going to work inside this frame now.
Open pd-city.
Resize to 30%.
Duplicate this layer.
Flip Horizontally.
Position both these layers
in the two center squares of the frame.
It's ok it they overlap.
We'll fix that now.
Highlight the frame layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click inside the left center square of the frame.
Highlight the city that is in that square.
Go up to your toolbar.
Click Select.
Now click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.
Highlight your frame layer again.
Grab your magic wand.
Click inside the right center square of the frame.
Highlight the city that is in that square.
Go up to your toolbar.
Click Select.
Now click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Unhide your second tube layer.
Duplicate this.
Hide one of these layers.
We'll use it later.
Place your tube behind frame-01.
Position your tube's face
to show in the left corner of the frame.
Highlight frame-01 layer.
Grab the magic wand.
Click inside the left square.
Highlight the tube layer that shows in that square.
Go to Select.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Duplicate the tube layer you just worked with.
Flip it Horizontally.
Place it in the right corner of frame-01.
We're done working on the inside of this frame.

Open pd-barbwire.
Resize to 85%.
Center on the top of frame-01.
Open pd-border-01.
Resize to 60%.
Center this at the bottom of frame-01.

Open your hidden tube layer.
Place this behind everything inside frame-01.
Flip Horizontally.
Position where you like.
I place this over to the right of the siggy.
Duplicate this layer and hide it.
We'll use the hidden layer in a minute.
With the tube layer highlighted
Erase any portion of the tube
that shows below frame-01 layer.

Now unhide the last tube layer.
Place this over to the left
behind frame-01.
You may need to resize your tube to fit.
It will depend on the tube you are using
how much you will resize it.
Play around til it looks good.

Open pd-kiss-01.
Resize to 40%.
Place in upper right corner.
Open pd-heart-01.
Resize to 30%.
Place in upper right corner.
Open pd-wa-01.
Resize to 50%.
Again, place in upper right corner.
On this layer
I placed a Stroke, Outside, 3
color ea11f2.

I used no drop shadows on this taggie.

Make a new layer.
In the font of your choice,
Type the word “Me”.
I used the color fab2ef
with a Stroke, Black, Outside, 3.
Position this in upper right corner
next to pd-wa-01.

Make another new layer.
Type your name.
I used the same settings as the word “Me”.
Center on the top of frame-01.

One last thing to do:
Open pd-light-02.
Resize to 50%.
Place this behind all layers.
Duplicate it three times.
Move each of these layers
toward the outer corners on your sig.
This will soften the look of your taggie.

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!

♥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! ♥
