Create a Peeling Sticker in an Instant (Exclusive tutorial)
Greetings my designer friend. I know you must be pumped up after reading the title because we all love stickers don't we? Today I'm going to show you how to create a cool peeling sticker in like 10 seconds. Sounds awesome isn't it so let's get started.
Let's get our beloved Photoshop open. Create a new document you decide the size of it. Take ellipse tool out (U) and draw a nice and neat circle in any size you want.
Now this is the fun part. Bring up the layer style pallet of the circle you drew by simply double clicking on the layer in the layer pallet or right click and go to the blending options in order to do this. After you bring that up apply this following effects. When it come to this part the gradient is totally optional you can change it up to your needs or you can just go with a single color that's your choice. The stroke size depends on the size of your circle just make sure you get a nice sticker line to it that's what it's about. Here's what I'm using.
Now you should have something like this. I have changed my background color to black so you can have good look of the stroke.
Since we are creating a peeling sticker it's time to create the peel. Take out the rectangle Marquee Tool(M) and draw a selection box on top of the circle as show in the picture below.
Now we are going to do a little trick. In order to do that you got to hide the background layer first and after you have done that go to edit and copy merged (ctrl+shift+C).Now do this really carefully after you have copied it before pasting it again you have to cut that selected part off from you circle. Since you still have that selection just press delete and that will do the job. After you have done that you can go to edit and paste (ctrl+v) what we copied before.
It's time to give the peels it deserved look. Select the new peel layer and go to edit Transform and flip vertical. Place it on the cut of our big circle and select both layer and rotate them to the side to give it a neat look.
It's time to add the final effects to spice up out sticker. Select our peel on the layer pallet and apply the following gradient effect to it.
Heres What you sould have so far
Time to make our sticker bit more stylish. We are going to add a shadow for out peel for that we have to duplicate the peel layer and give it a black color overlay using the blending options. Make sure you place that layer below our original peel layer. Now go to filter and blur-Gaussian Blur and apply the following.
After you apply the blur Bring the shadow layers opacity down to around 40% and place the shadow below the original peel you can change the alignment of the shadow to your choice. After you are finish with that you should have something like this.
So fill you sticker with anything you want here's something I came up with
There you go. This sticker designs can be really handy sometimes hope you all liked it
