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

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

SUPPLES: This is the animated ribbon & word art.
These supplies are for Personal Use ONLY.
You can snag it HERE.

FONT OF CHOICE: I used Copper Alt Caps Expert.

I used Photoshop for this tut.
In this tut we'll use some premade animation.
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 paper19.

In the photomasks folder,
Open mask01Photoshop.

With the mask01 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 paper19 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.

Duplicate your new mask layer.
Place both layers to your liking.

Open your tube.
Place over to the right.
Grab a soft edged eraser.
Erase around the bottom edges to create a soft look.

We will now build our tag on top of the masks layers
and under the tube layer.
Highlight the second mask layer.
We will place our elements on top of this.
Make sure the tube stays at the top of the Layer Palette.

These are the elements I used.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.

element50, resize to 50%
element47, resize to 25%
Flip this layer Vertically.
element11, resize to 50%
element48, resize to 45%
element49, resize to 25%
element12, resize to 35%
resize this layer to 50%Wide, 65%High

Open your Wordart
resize this to 50%Wide, 60%High
I used some effects on the wordart.
Color Overlay, color: 6c2637
Stroke, Outside, 1, color: dedede
Outer Glow
Drop Shadow
Bevel & Emboss
*Highlight Mode: Screen, color fbdfdf
Shadow Mode: Multiply, color 672434*

Continue with these elements:
element51, resize to 45%

Open AngelicaSbling46 in your supplies.
You will see four layers.
Place all four layers onto your taggie.
Place them directly on top of each other on your tag.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.

Place a drop shadow on all your layers except:
AngelicaSbling46 layers

Resize the siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name on the taggie.
I used color 6c2637
I used the same effects as the wordart.

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 all layers of AngelicaSbling46
except the first layer.

Open the Animation Window.
Set the time for .2
Show all the rest of the layers in your tag.
Click the square button, next to the trash can,
in the animation window.
This will duplicate the first animation frame.
Do this two more times.
You should now have four animation frames.

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

Now go back to your animation window.
Highlight the third animation frame.
Go over to your Layer Palette.
Leave everything as is except:
Hide the second layer of bling.
Unhide the third bling layer.

Back to your animation window again.
Highlight the fourth animation frame.
Go over to your Layer Palette.
Leave everything as is except:
Hide the third layer of bling.
Unhide the fourth bling layer.

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! ♥
