simple tutorial.

made in photoshop cs2, translatable.

1. take your base and duplicate it. set duplication to lighten.
2. new layer, fill with 4fc1b7, and set to color burn then the opacity to 35-45%. mine was set to 43%
3. new layer, fill with a5fb8c, set to color, and then the opacity to something low like 25%
4. new layer, fill with f946c4, set to soft light, 19%, or something low like that
5. new layer, fill with f98e58 set to soft light, 20% or so
6. new layer, fill with 06042d set to soft light, 100%

7. now for the text. if you want text, i set mine to georgia, size 7.5pt and the spacing is 75.
8. i set my text to really tiny so it looks like dots and wrote random messages to make the dot affect.

it should look similar to that
send your finished icons if youd like

mess around with the opacities to make the icon to your liking
