Timber, this is a fun tut and the results can be cool but, I didn't pick a very attractive color palette for this one.
I am posting my results anyway, LOL.  I guess it will work for fall.
The color palette I selected is called It's Raining Love by TVR.  Why is your palette so much more colorful?  Mine started out with more color.  The tut is well-written and very different from others I have tried.
I got lost at:
5. gaussian blur=25; copy selection; select none; hide the palette layer;
I have never copied something and waited so long to paste it.  LOL, I kept trying
to read ahead and see where to paste it. 
When I did the gaussian blur at 25, it made almost my whole palette look golden brown.
I don't know if I did something wrong or not but, I definitely want to try it again with other colors.
Other than my wanting to do what I've done before and not follow directions, it is wonderful!   
Thanks for writinng it for us.

Thank you for testing the tutorial and for your feedback, Judy!

I've taken a look at the palette that you chose, It's Raining Love, and if you compare the size of the bands of color between the It's Raining Love palette and the Pungent palette then you will see how narrow the bands of color are on the It's Raining Love palette.

The It's Raining Love palette is one of those palettes that will need some selection adjustments in order to make a comparable text fill.

I used the It's Raining Love palette for my tag below and I'll share the adjustments that I made.  For the Custom Selection, I used 80 for the bottom value rather than 395.  I noticed the first four bands of color were uniform in width, so I used that same width for the green area and adjusted the selection to take that into account.

For the blur step, I used blur=8 instead of blur=25 (blur=25 is too much blur for such a small selection).  So depending on what color palette you choose and the width of the color bands, you'll have to make adjustments to the custom selection and the blur.  Instead of using blendmode=multiply, I used blendmode=burn for the outline layer.  The rest of the steps are the same.  It's a pretty palette and it makes a pretty tag!


For the Copy Selection step, you are copying the blurred palette selection to the Clipboard where it "sits" until you paste it.  I know it seems like a long time until you get to the point of pasting the copied selection, but it stays in the Clipboard until or unless you copy something else.  This is the first time that I've ever waited so long to paste a selection but it worked, so I wrote it that way.  It's just something new to scramble your marbles LOL.

Thanks for the info, timber.  I tried it again with much better results.
I am going to try the It's Raining love palette again with your tips.
For this try, I used the palette Deck Chair and the blur of 15.
I will definitely play some more!

I really enjoy this tut, though I was confused. I ended up having to do it differently but I think I managed to get the same or similar effect. (^_^) 

I tried it with Pungent//Mocking Bird & also Seafom//VNF-Buttermilk. Not too thrilled with the Seafoam one. Might be too on the light side. Will have to play around with it some more. Both are color enhanced and saved with Optimized Octree, Error Diffusion.
Okay, so I was confused right from the beginning. Had to reread it to finally get it (that is on my part lol). When it came to selections thing with palette on as new layer, that had me with a big ? lol I did the selections numbers and it just selected a white long strip of the "white" part of the canvas.

So what I ended up doing was keeping palette off the canvas and just selecting an area with the selections tool. I blurred it as suggested and kept it in clipboard. 

When I got to step 9, I was looking for create "Selection From Vector" but there is only "Selection From Vector Object". So I figured that is what is meant and did that. 

In step 12, my text vector layer is at top (all others are below it as raster). So I thought it did not look right with the thick white border "text" and no effects showing. I realized that I may have done some layering process wrong and moved my top (text vector w/ white 4.5 stroke) to the bottom - hiding the background of white. 

After doing that, everything looked good (^_~) I have never tried some of the process explained in this challenge, so that played a major part in my confusion

Here is a different look using the same settings. Only the gradient I used did not look good with the coconut ice glass. I did some other tweaking, which I would have to try and get that into notes to post lol But I did enhance the color like 3 or 4 times on name. Added the Sparkles 4 times. Dup name layer in whole (with ds and all) so the drop shadow looks darker. The goth girl I found in a PB account. I used the font Starstruck at 95 pt.
