involves: Selective Coloring, Color Balance, Hue/Saturation

Go from: to:

Please comment and tell if it's easily understood and etc. ^_^




First all, as usual. Duplicate the original layer and keep it aside.
Sharpen the image.
Duplicate original layer again, set to Screen 100%.
Duplicate original layer again, set to Screen 40%. Change the opacity accordingly.
-->

Now, let's bring out the reds a little.
Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance...
Make sure Preserve Luminosity is ticked.
Midtones: +33, -10, +24
Shadows: -27, -5, +51
Highlights: 0, 0, 0
Set to Color 35%

Next; Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Color...
Method: Relative
Reds: -100, +23, +55
Yellows: -81, 0, +45
Neutrals: +100, 0, -30, -11
Set this layer to Color 100%

Next make a new fill layer, #A2FAFF, set to Soft Light 20%.


Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Color...
Method: Relative
Reds: -100, +23, +57
Yellows: -87, 0, +40
Neutrals: +100, 0, -25, -12
Set to Soft Light 30%

Now, this next step is optional. It depends whether or not your icon currently has enough colour or not.
Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation...
Bring the Saturation up to about +30

Now we need another fill layer, #FFE8A2. Soft Light, 20%.
Now we need another fill layer, #FFE8A2. Color Burn, 15%


Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Color...
Reds: -100, 0, +28
Yellows: -100, 0, +100
Neutrals: -25, 0, +21
Dada..


Now, you can leave it like this or add a texture. ^_^
I used this texture by...I don't know who. Apparently the folder I saved it to doesn't have a credit on the front. Sorry. If you made this please tell me.
Just set it to Screen, 100%. You may like to use Lighten at 100% instead.

And...you're finished!


Your final layers palette should look like:
