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

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

FONT OF CHOICE: I used BrockScript.

I used Photoshop for this tut.

Open a canvas 800x800 pixels.
Transparent background.
Use my tag as a guide for placement of elements.

In the Paper folder,
open paperjpg10.
Center on canvas.

In the Mask folder,
open mask01 photoshop.
I placed this in the lower left corner.
Duplicate this layer.
Move the second layer to
the upper right corner of your canvas.
With this layer highlighted,
Right click in the Layer Palette.
In the menu that appears
Click Merge Down.
You should now have only one mask layer.

With the mask layer highlighted,
Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard.
Now click the mask icon in your Layer Palette.
You should see marching ants on your tag.
Let go of the Ctrl key.
Highlight your paper layer.
Look at the bottom of your Layer Palette.
You'll see a little square with a circle in it.
Click that.
You paper layer now has two icons in it.
Hide your black mask layer.
And there's your mask!
With your new mask layer highlighted,
Right click in the Layer Palette.
Click on Convert to Smart Object.
Right click again.
Click on Raterize Layer.
Your mask is done.
You can delete the black mask layer if you wish.

These are the elements I used.
Use my tag as a guide for placement.
element 51
element41, resize to 35%
Flip this layer Horizontally
element28, resize to 35%
element25, resize to 50%
element24, resize to 40%
element11, resize to 25%
Duplicate this layer.
Hide the second layer.
element01, resize to 25%

Open your tube.
I used fairy02, resized to 25%.
Position this layer below element01
and both element11 layers
in the Layer Palette.

To make it look like your tube is holding the key:
Highlight the duplicated element11 layer.
Grab a small eraser.
Erase where her thumb is only.
Now move the duplicated element11 layer
above your tube in the Layer Palette.
Viola! She's holding the key!
Keep both element11 layers visible.
There will not be a drop shadow on the duplicated layer,
but will be on the original one.
This prevents over shadowing on the key.

Place a drop shadow on all your layers except:
paper mask layer
element11, duplicated layer

Resize the siggy to your liking.

Make a new layer.
Type your name on the taggie.
I used color db46a2
Now place a Stroke:
Stroke, Outside, 2, color fba8d7
I also used:
Bevel & Emboss

I also used a Drop Shadow and Outer Glow.
Drop Shadow

Outer Glow

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.

Always Save as PSD first.
Then you can save it as a PNG.

I hope you had fun with this tut
and that you can use the different techniques
in other taggies you create!

*This tut was created by me, Redneck Tuts by Savage.

♥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! ♥
