♥Rudolphina (Simple Siggy) PTU♥

**This tutorial was written & posted by Ditzy Dezigns on November 7th 2011**
***Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & completely unintentional!!***

Here is what we will be making : 
**I wanted to make a simple signature tutorial for those of you who are just starting out either making siggies, or using plugins. This is a very simple tutorial, using a few cute elements, that work for someone who is just learning. If you have any questions do not hesitate to email me @ aditzymemory@yahoo.com OR message me on facebook Ditzy Dezigns**

Supplies Needed :
Paint Shop Pro X4 (Any version should work)
Scrapkit - Rudolphina By Tamie @ Addictive Pleasures 
Or it is available @ her store Dreams N Digital

Plugins Used :
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass (Optional)
Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow (Optional)

Fonts Used :
Hiruko 
Honey Script

Elements Used :
Reindeer 2
Reindeer
Tree
Ribbon2
Present
Hat

Lets Begin :

Start by opening a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas. (Don't worry you will crop it at the end of the tutorial, this just gives you room to work with)

Now open your Tree element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. Now using your Move tool position your Tree element to the left side of your canvas.
Now go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen

Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow
**You are welcome to use my settings below or your own**

Then click Ok.

Now open your Mouse2 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50%. Using your Move tool - position your Mouse 2 element on the left side of your canvas on place it on top of your Tree element.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings, click Ok)

Now open your Reindeer element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 35%. Using your Move tool - position your Reindeer element to the left side of your canvas & place it in front of your Mouse2 element. 
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings as before, click Ok)

Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your Reindeer layer - then click Duplicate. Now using your Move tool, move your duplicated Reindeer element so that it is positioned right next to the original Reindeer element. (See my tag for reference if needed)

Now activate your Text tool - set your font, size & color settings.
For the name I used :
Font : Hiruko
Size : 225 Pixels (This will depend on the length of your name)
Background Color : #C5241C
Foreground Color : Set to nul

Type out your name. Then click Apply. Now position your name so that it is lined up next to your elements on the left.
Go to your layers pallet - move your Name layer down so that it is under all of your element layers. (It should be the 2nd layer from the bottom once you move it down)

Now right click on your Name layer - click Convert To Raster Layer.
Now go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 4000 - then click Gradient Glow -
**Again you are welcome to use my settings below or your own**

Then click Color Tab :


Now click Ok.

Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow. (Use the exact same settings you have used through out this tutorial)

Now activate your Magic Wand tool - click inside each letter in your name until all letters have the "Marching Ants" around them.

Now go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then click Glass -
**Again you are welcome to use my settings below or your own**


Then click Ok.

Now keeping your letters selected, go to Adjust - click Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise
**You can use the same settings as I did, or your own**


Then click Ok.

Now go to Selections & click Select None.

Now you will want to add any phrase you would like on your signature. I used the phrase "Happy Holiday's"
The settings I used are :
Font : Honey Script
Size : 72 Pixels
Background Color : #000000
Foreground Color : Set to nul

Once you have your phrase positioned to your liking, go to your layers pallet - right click on your Phrase layer - then click Convert To Raster Layer. 
Then go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 4000 - then click Gradient Glow.
**These settings are different from the ones we used above so make sure you check them**


Now click your Color Tab -


Then click Ok.
Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow (Same settings as before, click Ok)

Now open your Hat element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 35%. Using your Move Tool position your Hat element to your liking on one of the letters in your name. I choose to use the last letter.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (same settings as before)

Now open your Present element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 45%. Using your Move tool position your Present element to the right end of your name.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings as before)

Now open your Ribbon 2 element - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 80%. Then go to Image - click Free Rotate - set it to Left 90.00 & click Ok.

Now using your Move Tool - position your Ribbon 2 element so that it is center on your name. (See my tag for reference if needed)

Now go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen
Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow (Same settings as before, click Ok)

Now go to your layers pallet - then move your Ribbon2 layer down so that it is under the following layers :
Tree 
Mouse2
Reindeer (both layers)
Present

Now once you have all of your elements, name & phrase where you like it, go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Visible.
Now activate your Crop Tool - crop off any access canvas that you did not use.

Now you may or may not need or want to re-size your tag - this all depends on where you will be using it and what your signature sizes are allowed to be.

If you do re-size your tag, make sure that with your layers all merged that you apply one final Sharpen to your tag.

Now save your tag as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!!
