TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fantastic artwork of
Amberly Berendson.
This is a PTU tube.
The tube I used came with many layers.
I used one main tube and
three smaller ones.
You must have a license to use Amberly's art.
You can find her art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Halloween Treats (Taggers Size) by Rieka Rafita.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Very Assy.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.
Transparent background.

Open Paper4.
Center on canvas.

Open Frame3.
Place a little toward the left
on the canvas.
With this layer highlighted,
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.

Highlight Paper4 layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Choose Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Open Bow2.
Resize to 80%.
Place on upper left corner of Frame3.

Open your main tube.
Place to your liking.
I placed my other three tubes
after all the elements were in place.

I used these elements:
CandyCorn1, resize to 35%
Ribbon1, resize to 75%
Ribbon3, resize to 50%
Duplicate this layer.
Bow1, resize to 35%
Duplicate this layer.
Wegwieser, resize to 50%
Wordart1, resize to 25%
Duplicate this layer.
Wordart3, resize to 25%
I placed all three layers of Wordart1 & 3
on the Wegwieser.
Cupcake1, resize to 50%
PumpkinFace2, resize to 35%
PaperBag, resize to 35%
Spider1, resize to 35%
FankieCorn2, resize to 50%
Ghost, resize to 50%
Wordart2, resize to 90%

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
Wordart1 & 3 layers
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name,
one letter at a time.
Place each letter where you like.
When you are done,
Merge all the letters together.
Go to your last letter layer.
Highlight it.
Right click in your Layer Palette.
Choose Merge Down.
Repeat this until all your letters are one layer.
I used color feb93b.
Stroke: Outside, 3, Black.
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 PNG.
(If you want to maintain your layers
Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.
When doing both these steps
It is important to change the title of the tag.
When I Save as PSD,
I always name the tag what I want.
Then, when saving as a PNG,
I add the number 1 behind the name of the tag.
Like this:
Too Cute, Save as PSD
Too Cute1, Save as PNG
Otherwise, your PNG will overwrite your PSD
Merging your tag into one layer only.)

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! ♥
