TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome art of
Sweet Pinup.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Ur Mine by Black Widow Creationz.
This is part of a store collab at Inspirations of Scrapsfriends.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Beachman Script.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.

Open PP4.
Center on canvas.

Open PP5.
Center on canvas.
Go to the upper left corner of the Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
Click Screen in the drop down menu.
Leave Opacity set at 100%.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges.

Highlight PP4 layer.
With the same eraser,
erase around the edges.
It doesn't have to be a perfect match
with PP5 layer.

Use my tag as a guide for placement
of elements.
I used these:
EL9, resize to 35%
EL8, resize to 35%
EL5, resize to 75%
Duplicate this layer.
EL20, resize to 50%
EL19, resize to 35%
EL7, resize to 45%
EL2, resize to 65%

Open your tube.
Depending on the size of your tube,
you may need to resize it to fit.
I resize my tube to 35%.
Duplicate your tube layer.
Hide one layer.
Place the unhidden layer behind EL12 layer.
Center this inside the snow globe, EL10.
Now highlight EL10 layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Unhide your other tube.
Place her behind EL16 layer.
Move your duplicated EL5 layer
on top of this tube layer.
Grab an eraser.
Erase parts of the ribbon
to allow your tube's body to show.
Use my tag as a guide.

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
paper layers
tube inside EL10
EL5 duplicate layer
Resize your siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color dcbcff
Stroke: Outside, 2, color ffdef3.
I also used:
Drop Shadow

Outer Glow

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 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:
I Heart You, Save as PSD
I Heart You1, 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! ♥
