TUBE OF CHOICE: I used the beautiful artwork of
Angelica Sellers.
This tube is called Crystal.
You must have a license to use this art.
You can find this art and get your license HERE.

SCRAPKIT: Aurelica by Angelica Sellers.
You can find it HERE.

MASK: Mask17 by Savage SWAK.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Bickham Script Two.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
In this tut we'll make several layers sparkle.
If you don't wish to animate, just skip the steps marked *BLUE*
Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

Open a canvas 800x800 pixels.
Transparent background.
If you are animating,
Flood fill with the color of your choice.

Open paper02.
Go to the upper right corner of your Layer Palette.
In the box next to Opacity,
type in 65.
Hit Enter on your keyboard.

Now we'll make the frame.
Open element20.
Resize this to 35% in Height only.
Leave Width as is.
Move this to bottom of taggie.
Duplicate this layer.
Move this layer to top of tag.
Rotate 90% CW (clockwise).
Move to left of siggy.
Move to right side of tag.
With this layer still highlighted,
Right click in the Layer Palette.
In the menu that pops up,
Click Merge Down.
Do this two more times
until all the element20 layers
are merged into one layer.
Duplicate this layer.

Open your tube.
Center on canvas.
Duplicate this layer.
Hide the duplicated layer for now.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the edges of this tube layer.

Open element03.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.
Resize to 35%.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
In the tool bar at the top of your screen,
find the word Opacity.
In the box next to this,
type in 44.
Now erase the stem and leaves of the rose.
This gives it a softer look.

Move element03 layer under your tube layer.
Again, grab a soft edged eraser.
With the rose layer highlighted,
Erase over your tubes fingers.
Move your rose layer back on top
of your tube layer.
It should now look like she is holding the rose.

Open element07.
Resize to 70%.
Duplicate this layer.
Open Mask17.
You'll see four layers in Mask17.
Only move the layer called Sav_WAmask17
onto your siggy.
Go to the tool bar at the top of your screen.
Click Layer.
Layer Style.
Color Overlay.
I used color: edd0d3
Now place a Stroke on this layer.
I used:
Inside, 1, color: cd4e78

Now unhide your duplicated tube layer.
Move this layer up in your Layer Palette
so it's on top of your mask layer.
Resize to 30%.
Place to your liking.

These are the elements I used:
element34, resize to 50%
Duplicate this layer.
element 22, resize to 25%
Duplicate this layer.
Flip Horizontally.

Open element 56.
Resize to 50%
Grab your Magic Wand.
Hold your Shift key down
and click on the pink area repeatedly
until all the pink has the marching ants around it.
Let go of the Shift key.
Now go to Edit in your tool bar at the top of your screen.
Click Copy.
Back to Edit.
Click Paste.
I named these pink area1 and 2.
Highlight element56 layer again.
Repeat the Magic Wand steps
inside the pink area.
Go to Edit in the top tool bar.
Click Cut.
Now the pink area is gone.

Continue with these elements:
element06, resize to 25%
element21, resize to 25%
Duplicate this layer.
element50, resize to 20%
element67, resize to 65%

Highlight element21 layer.
Looking at the dove layer, element76,
Grab an eraser
and erase where the dove's feet are.
Move the duplicated element21 layer
on top of the dove, element67.
It will look like the dove is holding the branch.

We'll make some layers sparkle now.
Do the steps below for each of the following layers:
element 20, 70, and pink area layers

Highlight the first layer of element20.
Go to Filter in your tool bar.
Click Noise.
Click Add Noise.
Set Amount to 8%
Check the box called Guassian.
Check the Monochromatic box.
Hit OK.
Highlight the first layer of element70.
Go back to Filter.
Click Add Noise.
(This will be the first thing listed in the drop down menu
and will automatically repeat your Noise settings.)
Highlight the first layer of pink area.
Add Noise.

For each of the second layers,
Repeat Noise steps above using these settings:
Check the box called Uniform.
Set Amount to 12%.
Keep Monochromatic checked.
Hit OK.

Place a drop shadow on all your layers except:
first tube layer
pink area layers

I used color 704565 for my drop shadows.

Resize the siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name on the taggie.
I used color edcdd0.
Now place a Stroke:
Stroke, Center, 2, color cc6fa1
I also used:
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.

If you don't want to animate, Save as PNG.
(If you want to maintain your layers
Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.

In the Layer Palette,
Hide the second layers of:
pink area

Open the Animation Window.
Set the time for .2
Show all the rest of the layers in the first frame.
Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame.

Highlight the second animation frame.
Go over to your Layer Palette.
Leave everything as is except:
Hide the first layers of:
pink area
Unhide the second layers.

Now go back to your animation window.

Click Play.
If you like what you see...

Save as PSD. Then Save for Web & Devises.

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! ♥
