TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the beautiful artwork of
Angelica Sellers.
I used two different tubes:
Petra and Snow Flower Trees.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Winter Dreams by Angelica Sellers.
You can find it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Bickham Script Two.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 800x800 pixels.
Transparent background.

Open paper 10.
Center on canvas.

Open paper 14.
Center on canvas.
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 Lighten.
Leave Opacity at 100%.

Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase the edges of both paper layers
to create a soft look.

Open Petra tube.
Duplicate this layer.
Resize the duplicated tube to 45%.
Place just a tad offside center of taggie.

Highlight the first Petra tube layer.
Flip Horizontally.
Go to the upper left corner of your Layer Palette.
Click the down arrow.
Click Screen.
Leave Opacity at 100%.
Place this layer a little off to the right side.

Open element 08.
Open element 06.
Place 06 directly over 08.

Move your first Petra tube layer
so her face is inside the frames.

Highlight element 08 layer.
Grab your Magic Wand.
Click inside 08 frame layer.
Highlight your first Petra tube layer.
Go to your tool bar at the top of your screen.
Click on Select.
Click Inverse.
Hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Go back to Select.
Click Deselect.

Highlight your element 08 layer.
Grab the Magic Wand.
Again, click inside the frame.
Highlight your paper 14 layer.
Go to Edit in your tool bar at the top of your screen.
Click Cut.

Open Snow Flower Trees:
bunny 01, resize to 40%
Flip Horizontally
bunny 02, resize to 35%
Place these on top of your duplicated Petra tube.

bunny 01 layer:
Use an eraser to erase the parts of the bunnie
that overlap her right leg.
bunny 02 layer:
User eraser and erase the parts of the bunnie
behind her boot.
I also erased a little on his head
so it looks like Petra has her hand on his head.

Open Snow Flower Trees border 01.
Place this at the bottom of your taggie.
I did not resize this.
Just play with it until you like the position of it.

Now we'll finish building our tag.
Everything will be placed on top of element 06
and under your duplicated Petra tube layer.
So if you highlight element 06 layer now,
the elements you add will be in the right place
for your siggy and will end up
under your duplicated Petra tube.

Elements I used:
element 65, resize to 70%
Duplicate and Flip Horizontally.
Element 15
Use element 15 layers to frame your tag
on the left and right sides.
element 46
element 28, resize to 30%
element 32, resize to 20%
element 27, resize to 30%
element 26, resize to 50%
element 64, resize to 25%
Rotate to your liking.
element 20

Place a drop shadow on all your layers except:
tube layers in center of tag
paper layers
first Petra layer
element 15
Resize the siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name on the taggie.
I used color 9c5687.
I used Stroke:
Outside, 2, color eda5ff.
Drop Shadow
Outer Glow

Bevel & Emboss
Shadow Mode color: 5a217f

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.

If you want to maintain your layers
Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.
Save as PNG.

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