How to go from this  to this  

Made in PSP7, extrememly simple, and extremely translateable. Involves Adjusment Layers and Raster Layers.

This is my first shot at a tutorial...eek

1. Take your base, crop it to 100x100 (I did 98x98 because I wanted to add a border to it, but you don't have to.)

2. Duplicate your base and set it to Screen at 100%. If it looks a little bright, don't worry about it, it gets better.

3. Make a new Raster layer and set it to exclusion, then flood fill it with #000080 at 36% opacity.

4. Make a new raster layer and set it to (color) burn. Flood fill it with #40FFFF at 100%.

5. Duplicate your base and drag it to the top, set it to softlight at 30%.

6. Go to Layers>>New Adjustment Layer>>Hue/Saturation/Lightness and set the Saturation to 10.

7. Make a new raster layer. Flood fill it with #000080 and set it to exclusion at 15%.

And voila! You're done :) If your image looks a little to bright, you can go back and lower the opacity of that first screen layer in step two. Feel free to add brushes or text, I added some text.
