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

SCRAPKIT: Candied by PolkaDot Scraps. 
You can find it HERE.

MASK: Mask14 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
Let's have some fun!
Open a new canvas, 700x700.
Transparent background.
Use my taggie as a guide for placement of elements.

Open paper2.
Center on canvas.
Resize to 90%

Open Mask14.
You'll see three layers in Mask14.
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.
Resize your new mask to your liking.

I used these elements:
strawberry, resize to 45%
Duplicate this layer.
Flip Horizontally.
button, resize to 50%
popscicle, resize to 50%
I erased a little bit of ribbon4
that covered frame4.
icecream, resize to 40%
flower3, resize to 65%
cupcake, resize to 40%
cookie, resize to 35%
ribbon6, resize to 65%
Flip this Horizontally and Vertically.

Open your tube.
You may have to resize your tube.
I resized mine to 30%.
Place to your liking.

Open wa.
I placed a Stroke on this.
Outside, 3, White.

Place a drop shadow on all layers
except the mask/paper layer.

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Now we'll work on the word art.
I ended up with five layers.
This way, I can place the words where I like.
Use my tag as a guide for the text.
Type the words you wish to use.
*When you have the text the way you want,
Right click on the top layer of text
in the Layer Palette.
When the menu pops up,
Click on Rasterize Type.
Do this for each layer.
Go back to the top layer of text.
Right click again.
This time click Merge Down.
Do this for each text layer
until all five layers are merged into one.*
(We will repeat the steps marked * for your name.)

Now for your name.
You will need one layer for each letter
in your name.
Position the letters underneath each other.
Use my tag as a guide.
Repeat the steps above marked with *.

Ok. Now we'll do the text effects.
For these, go to Layer in your tool bar.
Then go to Layer Style.
For the word art:
Color Overlay, color de4181
Stroke, Outside, 3, White
Bevel & Emboss

Drop Shadow

For Your Name:
Color Overlay, color fdd1e3
Stroke, Outside, 3, color d30771
Same settings for Bevel & Emboss as above.
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 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! ♥
