TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the awesome artwork of
Verymany found at Pics For Design.
This tube came with a Close Up.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Tech Savvy Collab.
This is a set of five kits (PTU).
The designers include:
Designs by Sarah
Pimp'd Designz
PolkaDot Scraps
Schnegge's Scraps
TK Dezigns
You can find it HERE.


I used Photoshop for this tut.

Because we're using 5 different kits,
I will refer to the elements like this:
sb-*** = Designs by Sarah kit
pd-*** = Pimp'd Designz kit
PDS-*** = PolkaDot Scraps kit
schn-***=Schnegge's Scraps
tk-*** = TK Dezigns kit

Open a canvas, 700x700 pixels.

Open pd-print02.
Resize to 75%
Place in upper left corner of canvas.
Duplicate this layer.
Flip Horizontally.
Place in upper right corner of canvas.

Open sb-frame1.
Open PDS-frame3.
Rotate this slightly.
Place over sb-frame1.

Open and place these elements:

Highlight your PDS-laptop layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the laptop screen.
Highlight sb-frame1 layer.
Go to Edit in your tool bar.
Click Cut.
Highlight the laptop layer again.
Grab the Magic Wand.
Click inside the laptop screen.
Highlight PDS-frame3.
Go to Edit.
Click Cut.

Now we'll work with the tubes.
Open your close up tube.
Place this behind sb-frame1
and on top of pd-print02.
Move over to the inside left of sb-frame1.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.
Duplicate this layer twice.
Hide layers 2 & 3 for now.
With your first CU tube layer highlighted,
Grab an eraser.
Erase all of the tube layer that goes outside
the inside part of sb-frame1.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow next to the word Normal.
In the drop down menu,
Click Luminosity.
Leave Opacity set at 100%.
Duplicate this layer.
With the duplicated layer highlighted,
Go to the down arrow again.
This time, in the drop down menu,
Click Soft Light.
Opacity: 100%

Open your regular size tube.
Place this on top of PDS-laptop.
You may need to resize your tube.
I resized mine to 85%.
Position where you like.

Back to the CU tube layers.
Highlight the second CU layer.
Place this to the right inside of sb-frame1.
This will overlap the CU tube layer
you just did.
Position to your liking.
Grab an eraser.
Erase all parts of this tube that go
outside the outer part of sb-frame1.
Go to the down arrow in your Layer Palette.
In the drop down menu,
Click Screen.
Opacity: 100%

Highlight your third CU tube layer.
Position this inside the laptop screen.
I flipped this layer Horizontally.
When you have this layer
positioned where you like,
Highlight the laptop layer in the Layer Palette.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside the laptop screen.
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.
Go to the down arrow in your Layer Palette.
In the drop down menu,
Click Luminosity.
Leave Opacity at 100%.

Finish your tag with these elements:
sb-ribbon2, resize to 65%
pd-swirl, resize to 50%
schn-flowerclip, resize to 40%
sb-facebook icon

Place a drop shadow on all layers except:
CU tube layers
pd-print02 layers

Resize the tag to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name on the taggie.
I used color 3cbcc2.
I used:
Stroke, Outside, 2, color 11627c
Drop Shadow
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 PSD, then PNG.

I hope you had fun with this tut
and that you can use this technique
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! ♥
