TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Arthur Crowe.
The tube I used came with 2 Close Ups.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this tube and get a license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Dead Sexy by TK Designs. 
You can find it HERE.

MASK: Mask1 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Tumbler.
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 paper7.
Center on canvas.

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.
Resize your new mask to your liking.

I used these elements:
I duplicated this layer.
Then I resized one layer to 80%
and the other layer to 50%.
Duplicate these layers again so you have:
two layers at 80%
three layers at 50%
Place to your liking.

Continue with these elements:
frame6, resize to 85%
Duplicate this layer.
Resize to 50%
heart3, resize to 50%
bow2, resize to 35%
Duplicate this layer.
Hide the duplicate layer for now.

Now we'll work with our tubes
then finish the taggie
with wordart1 from the kit.

Open your largest Close Up tube.
Move your CU tube under frame3
but on top of fence.
Place to your liking.
I only wanted her face to show
so I used a soft edged eraser
and erased the rest of her.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the drop down arrow next to the word Normal.
Choose Screen.
Leave the Opacity set to 100%.

Open the next sized Close Up tube.
This should be right under frame3 layer
but on top of the tube layer you just worked with.
Duplicate this layer.
I flipped one layer Horizontally.
Place both these layers to your liking.
We'll work with one tube layer at a time.
Hide the one you are not working with for now.

Let's start with the tube layer inside frame3.
Place so you can see her face inside the frame.

Highlight frame3 layer.
Grab your magic wand.
Click inside the frame.

Highlight your tube layer.
Go to the toolbar at the top of your screen.
Click Select.
In the drop down meun,
Choose Inverse.
Now hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
With your tube layer still highlighted,
Go to the drop down arrow again
in the upper left corner of the Layer Palette.
Click the arrow.
Select Luminosity.
Leave Opacity set at 100%.
Duplicate this layer.

Highlight the duplicated tube layer.
Go back to the down arrow.
Click it.
Select Screen.
Opacity 100%

Unhide the other tube layer.
Move and place to your liking.
I placed mine on top of 3hearts.
Once I got her where I liked,
I used a soft edged eraser
and erased all but her face.
When you're happy with placement,
Go to the down arrow in the Layer Palette.
Click it.
Choose Lighten.
Opacity 100%

Open your regular sized tube.
Place to your liking.
I centered this tube inside the collar.
I also used an Outer Glow on her.
color: ffbeec

Here's how you make it look like she's standing in it:
Remember you duplicated the collar layer?
Time to unhide it.
Move it on top of your regular sized tube.
Erase the collar where it covers her leg & body.

Open wordart1.
Resize to 35%.
Place an Outer Glow
and Drop Shadow on this.
Duplicate this layer 3 times.
Place each layer to your liking.

Place a drop shadow on your layers.
I did not place a drop shadow on:
paper/mask layer
splat2 layers
duplicate collar layer
tube layers

Resize your taggie to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name.
I used Black.
Stroke: Outside, 2, color b02988
Drop Shadow
Outer Glow, color ffe3f3

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! ♥
