its translatable. I hope somebody finds this useful.
This won't work for every icon, obviously. If you have a somewhat bright (outside works well) base with some reds and yellows in it, it should work pretty well.
Step 1. Crop/resize/sharpen if you like. Here's my base.
Step 2. Duplicate the background layer and set to screen. Merge.
Step 3. Set this color #340147 to exclusion 100%
Step 4. Set this color #e2ddf7 to color burn 39%
Step 5. Duplicate your base/screen merged layer and bring it to the top. Set it to soft light.
This is what you have
Step 6. Set this color #89ebfa to saturation 32%
Step 7. Set this color #f6ede3 to Mulitply 100%
Step 8. Go to Layer>new adjustment layer>color balance. These are my settings:
Step 9: Set this color #020435 to Exclusion at 76%
Step 10: Duplicate Multiply layer from Step 7, bring to the top and change opacity to 59%. This is what you have now:
Step 11: I didn't like how dull it looked so I decided to increase the contrast. Go to Layer>new adjustment layer>brightness/contrast. Increase the contrast to +21.
Step 12: Another color balance layer. These are my settings:
Midtones: and change the opacity to 50%
