TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the seductive artwork of
Robert Alvarado.
I used two different tubes by Robert.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

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

MASK: Mask1 and Mask8 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag them HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Font for Erin.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.

Open Paper8.
Center on canvas.

You'll do these next steps for the masks
on both layers of paper.
Do one paper at a time.
Open Mask1.
You'll see three layers in Mask1.
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.

Open pp7.
Center on canvas.
Open Mask8.
Repeat the steps above.
You should have both pp8 & 7 masked now.

Open pp3.
Center on canvas.
Open EL11, resize to 75%
With EL11 highlighted,
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.
Hold your mouse down
and click inside the outer part of the frame.
Whatever parts you click now
will be filled in with pp3.
Choose whichever parts you want filled.
When you're done clicking,
let go of the mouse.

Highlight pp3 layer.
Go up to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Open one of your tubes.
Place her between EL11 & pp3 layers.
Center her inside the frame, EL11.
When you have her where you'd like, do this:
Highlight EL11 layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.
Highlight your tube layer.
Go to Select.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.
Now duplicate your tube layer.

Highlight your first tube layer.
Go to Image in your tool bar.
Find Adjustments.
Click Black & White.
Use the default settings.
Click OK.

Highlight your second tube layer.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Click Pin Light in the drop down menu.
In the upper right corner of the Layer Palette,
Set Opacity to 45%.

Open EL24.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement.
Open EL14, resize to 50%

Open your second tube of choice.
Position her where you like inside EL14.

Duplicate EL14 layer.
Move this layer on top of the tube you just opened.
Grab an eraser.
To make it look like she's coming out of the frame,
Erase this frame, EL14
where it covers the parts you want to stand out.
Use my tag as a guide.

I used these elements on the taggie:
EL7, resize to 65%
EL34, resize to 35%
EL5, resize to 65%
Duplicate this layer
EL25, resize to 40%
EL8, resize to 35%
EL9, resize to 45%
Flip Horizontally

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
masks layers
tubes inside EL11 frame
EL24 duplicate layer
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color b7070b.
Stroke: Outside, 3, color d5cdcd.
Place a Drop Shadow on this.

Make another new layer.
Use the same effects as you did your name.

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:
Bite Me, Save as PSD
Bite Me1, 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
and that you can use these techniques
in other taggies you create!

♥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! ♥
