TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Keith Garvey.
This tube came with a Close Up.
You must have a license to use his art.
You can find Keith's art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT:  BYOK: THE BIG CHILL @ Pimp My Tags w/ Scraps
This is a bundle put together by:
Designs by Sarah
Pimp'd Designz
PolkaDot Scraps
TK Dezigns
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Champange.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Because there are 4 different designers
I will refer to the elements like this:
sb-*** = Designs by Sarah
pd-*** = Pimp'd Designz
PDS-*** = PolkaDot Scraps
tk-*** = TK Dezigns

Let's have some fun!
Open pd-pp 01
Resize to 90%

Open pd-mask 01.
Resize to 95%.
Place this on top of your paper.
With the mask 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 black mask layer.

Now we'll use four alphas.
Resize all of them to 25%
Place them at the bottom of the mask
so it reads SNOW.
Use my tag as a guide.
Open these alphas:
PDS-S snowalpha
PDS-N snowalpha
PDS-O snowalpha
PDS-W snowalpha
Place a drop shadow on each letter.

Open tk-clusterframe4

Open your Close Up tube.
Move this behind clusterframe4 layer.
Place to your liking.
Highlight clusterframe4 layer.
Grab your Magic Eraser.
Click inside the clusterframe.

Highlight your CU tube layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.
Now go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Click Overlay.

Open sb-splat1
Resize to 30%

Open sb-flower2
Resize to 25%

Open sb-flower1
Resize to 20%

Open your regular sized tube.
Place to your liking.

I used these elements for the rest of the taggie:
tk-snowflake pink, resize to 30%
pd-snowflake 03, resize to 30%
PDS-snowflake1, resize to 30%
pd-snowflake 02, resize to 25%
pd-snowflake 01, resize to 25%

I placed drop shadows on all layers except:
Close Up layer
mask layer

Resize the tag to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color 265598
I also added:
Drop Shadow
Stroke: Outside, 2, color d0c4ff

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! ♥
