This is the base:-

Yellows Saturation +34
Blues Saturation +23

The coloring is done :) The following is for the text ♥


The font that I used is called Eight Fifteen. You can pick any font you want =) Be creative!

1) Write whatever you want and then go to Blending option > Outer Glow. Set it according to this to have the outer glow effect =]

2) For the stripes behind the writing, go to custom shape tool and pick this stripes. Remember to drag this below the font layer :)!

3) Drag both of the layers to below the first hue/saturation layer.

And you're done! :D
