TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Keith Garvey.
I used two different tubes,
One was a Close Up.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find Keith's art
and get a license  HERE. 

SCRAPKIT: Break Me by Pimp'd Designz. 
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used ChopinScript.
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 pp02.
Center on canvas.

Open frame01.
Place off center.
We will build our tag around this.
With this layer highlighted
Grab your magic wand.
Click inside the rectangle part of frame.
Highlight your paper layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
In the drop down menu,
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Choose Deselect.

Open your Close Up tube.
Place this inside frame.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the drop down arrow next to the word Normal.
Select Screen.
Leave Opacity set at 100%.
(That's in the upper right corner of your Layer Palette.)

Behind the paper layer I used these elements.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.
clock, resize to 75%
flower02, resize to 75%
Flip this layer Horizontally.
charm, resize to 75%

On top of the frame layer
I used these elements:
feather, resize to 50%
Flip Verticaly.
Duplicate this layer.
Flip Horizontally.
leaf, resize to 75%
butterfly, resize to 35%
candles, resize to 75%

Open your regular size tube.
Place next to frame.

Open wordart01.
Resize to 90%.
Place at bottom of tag.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on
the wordart.

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color c8c8c8.
With this layer highlighted
Right click in the Layer Palette.
In the menu that appears
Choose Rasterize Layer.
Now go up to Filter in your tool bar.
Select Noise.
Add Noise.
Type in 20%.
Use Uniform.
I then placed a Stroke on this layer.
Stroke, Inside, 2, color 464141.

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! ♥
