Kobato. Tutorial

I was particually happy with the result of this icon, so I thought I'd share

How to go from this to

Step 1:
Crop the image to you liking (+remember to hold the SHIFT key while cropping, it preserves the original dimensions+)
Duplicate the layer (CTRL+J)
Set the layer mode to Overlay


Step 2:
Add a fill layer, solid color #fee7ae (Layer>New Fill Layer>Solid Color...)
Set the layer mode to Multiply at 60%

It's a bit too much, but we'll fix that in the next step

Step 3:
Add another fill layer, solid color #f1b2ff (Layer>New Fill Layer>Solid Color...)
Set the layer mode to Soft Light at 70%

Better, but not quite done

Step 4:
Add another fill layer, solid color #c0fff8(Layer>New Fill Layer>Solid Color...)
Set the layer mode to Color Burn at 100%


Step 5:
+It is important fo the effect that the folowing layers of the folowing steps are all beneath the fill color layers+

Use this pattern by 77 words and drag it to the bottom layer


Step 6:
I cropped this texture by unknow (tell me!)  until I was left with just the flowers. Rotate it and paste the flowers in a new layer above the flower pattern layer. Drag it to the left of the image


Step 7:
Make a new layer (CTRL+SHIFT+N)
Use the rectangular marquee tool to create a small white box.
Use this brush to make a small dotted line. I picked a light pink from the image with the color picker tool


Step 8:
Make a new layer (CTRL+SHIFT+N)
Use the rectangular marquee tool to create a white box.
This will be your text box


Step 9:

Use the type tool and type "Kobato". I used JaneAusten, 14pt, in the same color as the brush of step 8
Double Click the type layer and choose Stroke, color white, 2px


Step 10:
Use the type tool and type "let me heal you". I used Century gothic, 8pt, in the same color as the brush of step 8


Step 11:
Use this texture by myrasis
Set it to Screen 100%


And your done! =D
