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

SCRAPKIT:  Midsummer Night's Dream Collab.
This is 3 PTU kits combined in one bundle.
Designers are:
Cora's Creations
Designs by Sarah
TammyKat Designs
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Bickham Script Two.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Because we're using 3 different kits,
I will refer to the elements like this:
cc-*** = Cora's Creations kit
sb-*** = Designs by Sarah kit
tk-*** = TK Dezigns kit

Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 700x700.
Transparent background.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement of elements.

Open tk-sparklepaper3.
Center on canvas.

Open tk-acrylicframe-purple.
Rotate at an angle and place toward the left.
Open tk-acrylicframe-pink.
Rotate this and place toward right.

Open sb-paper4.
Highlight tk-acrylicframe-pink layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click on inside of pink frame.
Highlight sb-paper4 layer.
Go to Select in your toolbar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

I used these elements for the taggie:
tk-moon2 cutouts, flip Horizontally.
sb-fairydust, resize to 50%, place in lower left.
Duplicate dust and place in upper right corner.
sb-vinewithflowers, resize to 50%
Duplicate vine, flip Horizontally.
tk-meshcandle-purple, resize to 50%
cc-stars, resize to 50%
Duplicate, flip Horizontally.
cc-flower 02
cc-heart 01
cc-flower 05, resize to 50%

After placing all elements on tag,
Open your tube.
Place her where you like.
You can use my tag as a guide.

Highlight tk-sparklepaper3.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges of your siggy
to create a soft look.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on
fairydust, paper, or meshcandle layers.
On meshcandle layer,
I placed an Outer Glow.
Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color: b9f6ff
Stroke, Outside, 2, color 0404fd.
I also used Bevel & Emboss.

Use the settings above.
Click Ok.

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! ♥
