TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Barbara Jensen.
The tube I used came with a Close Up.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find Barbara's art and get a license HERE.

SCRAPKIT:  So Hot 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.

MASK: Mask1 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Trinigan FG.

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 cc-paper12.
Center on canvas.

Open Mask1.
You'll see two layers in Mask1.
Only move the layer called Mask
onto your siggy.
Place this on top of your paper.
With this layer highlighted
hold your CTRL key down on your keyboard
and hit your mask icon in the layer palette
at the same time.
You'll see little marching ants now.
Highlight your paper layer.
Click the mask button
(this is a square with a circle in it)
at the bottom of the layer palette.
*You should have two pictures in your paper layer now.
One of your paper and one of the mask.*
Hide your mask layer.
Highlight the paper layer.
Right click in the layer palette.
Hit Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again.
Click Rasterize Layer.
Voila! You have a mask!
Now you can delete the gray mask layer.

Enlarge your new mask to your liking.

Open tk-ribbonframe-shadow.
Place in lower right corner.
Along the bottom of the frame
I used these elements:
sb-flower3, resize to 50%
tk-redflower, resize to 35%
sb-flower4, resize to 25%

Open cc-wa 03, resize to 35%.
Place this over to the bottom left.
Make sure to leave room for your name.

Open sb-wordart2.
Resize to 75%.
Place this in upper right corner.

Use my tag for guidance in placing.
Open cc-wa 02.
Open cc-flair01, resize 50%.
Open sb-swirl2, resize 35%.
Open cc-cherries, resize 50%.

Open your tube.
Place where you like.

Open tk-thisiswhyimhot.
Place in upper left corner.
Open sb-flower2.
Resize to 35%.
Rotate a little so both flowers overlap wordart.
Open cc-flower 02, resize 35%.

Now for your Close Up tube.
Place your close up behind your frame layer
but on top of your mask layer.
Position this how you like.
You can use my tag as a guide.
With this layer highlighted
Go to the upper left corner of the layer palette.
Where you see the word Normal,
there is a drop down arrow next to it.
Click the arrow.
Choose Soft Light.
Leave the Opacity at 100%.
(That's in the upper right corner of the layer palette.)
Ok. Now grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase your Close Up tube where it
extends outside the mask.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on
the mask, sb-wordart2 or Close Up tube layers.
On cc-wa layers,
I placed a drop shadow and stroke.
For tk's thisiswhyimhot wordart,
I used Bevel & Emboss
and Inner Glow.
These are the settings I used:
Bevel & Emboss

Click Ok.

Here's the Inner Glow settings:

Click Ok.
Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used Black.
Stroke, Outside, 2, color ecb5dc.
I also used a drop shadow.

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! ♥
