TUBE OF CHOICE: I used an Exclusive Jose Cano tube.
It was a bonus tube with purchase
for a limited time.
It came with a Close Up layer.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

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

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Chigger.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Open a canvas 700x700 pixels.
Transparent background.

Open PP10.
Center on canvas.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges.

Open EL31.
Open EL29.
Place directly on top of EL31.
Resize to 90%.
Open EL30.
Place directly on top of EL31.
Resize to 80%.

Open PP7.
Center on canvas.
Move behind all frame layers.

Highlight EL30 layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.
Highlight PP7 layer.
Go to Select in your tool bar.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Choose Deselect.

Use my tag as a guide for placement
of these elements.
I used these:
EL16, resize to 35%
EL11, resize to 50%

Open your regular sized tube.
Place to your liking.

Continue with these elements:
EL45, resize to 45%
Flip this 90 degrees Counter Clockwise(CCW)
EL39, resize to 40%
EL21, resize to 35%
EL37, resize to 80%
Duplicate this and flip Horizontally.
EL36, resize to 25%
EL2, resize to 45%
EL35, resize to 50%
EL33, resize to 35%
Duplicate this layer.

Open your Close Up tube.
Place this behind EL30 layer.
(Your purple frame)
Center inside to your liking.
I flipped mine Horizontally.

Highlight EL30 layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the frame.
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.

With your CU tube layer still highlighted,
Go to the upper left corner of the Layer Palette.
Click the drop down arrow next to the word Normal.
When the menu appears,
Click Luminosity.
Leave the Opacity set at 100%.

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

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used color ff67d4
I didn't use any effects on the 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:
Sweetly Toxic, Save as PSD
Sweetly Toxic1, 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! ♥
