TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Keith Garvey.

and get a license  HERE.

SCRAPKIT:  Sweet Dreams or Beautiful Nightmares

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Delilah.
I used Photoshop for this tut.
Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 700x700.
Transparent background.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement of elements.

Open paper19.
Resize to 90%.
Center on canvas.

Open Mask6.
You'll see three layers in Mask6.
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.

Resize your new mask to your liking.
I grabbed a soft edged eraser
and erased around the edges a bit
to soften the look.

Open element45.
Resize to 75%.
Open element3.
Place toward the bottom of your moon.
Open element32.
Place this so your clouds look layered.
Open element38.
Place toward lower left of tag.
Open frame7.
Center at bottom of siggy.

Use my tag as a guide for placement of these elements:
element22, resize to 75%, flip Horizontally
element53, resize to 50%
element5, resize to 75%
element7, resize to 50%

Open your tube.
Resize to fit tag.

I placed these elements on top of my tube:
element31, resize to 65%
I duplicated this layer twice
and placed the feathers at bottom of tag.
element2, resize to 65%
Duplicate this layer 2 times.
Place with black feathers.
element8, resize to 50%, flip Horizontally
element11, resize to 75%
element36, resize to 45%
I placed an Outer Glow on element14.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on
the mask layer or element14.

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color ffdcdd.
Stroke, Outside, 2, Black.
I also used a drop shadow
Outer Glow
and Bevel and Emboss.

For Satin
I used these settings:

Click OK.

These are settings I used for Bevel & Emboss:

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! ♥
