o8. Add Texture

*I've rotated the texture around, so it won't be in their faces.

o10. Add Texture

Set to: SCREEN

o11. Add Text
If you'd like to add a text, feel free to. For step o10, it's not really necessarily for a tiny text, because some icons look better off without it. Same with text. But it's up to you really. :P


And you're done! (^-^)b
If you would like the .PSD, feel free to ask for it! ;D This is a pretty long tutorial, ne!
