TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Jose Cano.
I used two Close Up tubes.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find Jose's art
and get a license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Biker Babe Collab
by Designs by Sarah
and TK Designs.

MASK: Mask3 by Savage SWAK.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used CocktailShaker.
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 sb-pp10.
Center on canvas.
Open sb-pp9.
Center on canvas.

You'll do these next steps for the mask
on both layers of paper.
Do one paper at a time.
Open Mask3.
You'll see three layers in Mask3.
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.
Now you can delete the gray mask layer.
You should have both pp9 & 10 masked now.

Highlight sb-pp9.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Click Lighten.

Open sb-frame3.
Place at bottom of canvas.

Open sb-frame2.
Place toward right of canvas.

Open tk-rideitpaper.
Resize to 70%.
Place behind sb-frame2.
Center inside frame.

Highlight sb-frame2 layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside frame.
Highlight tk-rideitpaper layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Open tk-frame fenced.
Place to your liking.

Open sb-motorcycle1.
Resize to 75%.
Center in front of tk-frame fenced.

Open your regular sized tube.
Position where you like.

Use my tag as a guide for placement of these elements:
tk-paperskull pink, resize to 20%
tk-noDS, resize to 40%
tk-epoxytribal blue, resize to 35%
sb-flame1, resize to 75%
Flip Horizontally.
sb-skull1, resize to 35%

Open your Close Up tubes.
Place these behind tk-frame fenced.
Arrange them to your liking inside the frame.

For each tube layer, do this:
Highlight tk-frame fenced layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.
Highlight your tube layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit Delete on your key board.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.
Now all three close up tube layers
should be neatly inside the frame.

Duplicate each of these three tube layers.
For the first layer of each tube, do this:
Highlight the first tube layer.
Go to Image in your tool bar.
Choose Adjustments.
Black & White.
Use the default settings.
Click Ok.
Do this for the first layers of your
Close Up tubes.

Now we'll work on the second layers
of your Close Up tubes.

For each of these,
we will use different settings in your Layer Palette.
For one layer:
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Choose Pin Light.

For another layer:
Upper left corner.
Click down arrow.
Soft Light.

For the third layer:
Leave set at Normal.
Go to the upper right corner of your Layer Palette.
You will see Opacity.
Set this to 45%.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on:
Close Up tube layers
paper or mask layers

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used Black.
Stroke, Outside, 3, color db6ac2.
I also used a drop shadow
and Bevel & Emboss.
These are the settings I used
for Bevel & Emboss.

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! ♥
