TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the fantastic artwork of
Keith Garvey.
I used two different tubes
that had close ups.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE. 

SCRAPKIT: Fallen by Black Widow Creationz.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used: the King & Queen font.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels,
transpartent background.

Open Frame1.
Place in upper left corner of canvas.
Duplicate this layer.
Place in lower right corner.

Open one of your Close Up tubes.
Place in front of the second frame.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Click Luminosity.
In the upper right corner of the Layer Palette,
Set the Opacity to 80%.
Open Lightening5 and 2.
Place over your tube to your liking.

Open the other Close Up tube.
Place in front of the first frame.
Repeat the steps for Luminosity & Opacity
that you used on your other Close Up tube.
Duplicate Lightening2 layer.
Open Lightening1.
Place the lightening over your second CU tube.

Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.
I used these elements:
Corset2, resize to 75%
Boot2, duplicate.
Flower2, resize to 50%
Skull1, resize to 80%
Flip Horizontally.
Bottle1, resize to 75%
Mask1, resize to 50%
Hat1, resize to 50%
Flower1, resize to 35%
BrokenHalo1, duplicate

Open your regular size tube.
Place to your liking.

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
Lightening layers
Close Up tube layers
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color fa0505.
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Outer Glow


(color decdcd)


Make another new layer.
I used the same font for both the name & word art.
Type the words
And You Test Me..
I used the color Black.
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss
Use the same settings for these as you did for the name.

Now with this layer highlighted,
Right click in the Layer Palette.
Choose Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again.
Click Rasterize Type.
Now you will add another Stroke
and an Outer Glow.



Make one more new layer.
Type the word: Why
I used the color fa0505.
I used Bevel & Emboss and Stroke.
Use the settings above marked *.

With Why layer highlighted,
Repeat the steps for:
Convert to Smart Object
Rasterize Type
Now put the same text effects on this as
you did for: And You Test Me..
These are marked above with **.

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:
Why, Save as PSD
Why1, 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! ♥
