Variations
Image For this example, I used DSB Flux Bright Noise (settings: 30, Mix) instead of PSP Noise.  The difference is very subtle; it's more of a shimmer than a sparkle. Just substitute Bright Noise for the PSP Noise in steps #27-30.
Image For this example, I hid Image the White layer after hiding the Background layer in step #26 (then continued at step #27 as normal).  Doing this will give a thicker appearance to the gold outline.
Image For this example, I Flood Filled Image the selections of the Gold and Gold2 layers with color #CFAC56 (4th row down and 4th column from the right on the color palette).  I think this one looks like a shiny penny.
Image For this example (which reminds me of sterling silver), I hid Image the Gold layer.  For the Diamond layer, I changed the Angle of the diamond pattern to 180.  For the Gold2 layer, I Flood Filled Image the selection with color #CDCDCD and changed the Blend Mode to Overlay.  I omitted the diamond lightening step (step #25).  When saving this tag, choose Optimized Median Cut (instead of Optimized Octree) on the Colors tab.
Image For this example (which reminds me of white gold), I changed the Blend Mode of the Gold layer to Soft Light (I used the same gold color from step #20).  For the Diamond layer, I changed the Angle of the diamond pattern to 270.  For the Gold2 layer, I Flood Filled Image the selection with color #D4D0C0 and changed the Blend Mode to Overlay.  I omitted the diamond lightening step (step #25).  When saving this tag, choose Optimized Median Cut (instead of Optimized Octree) on the Colors tab.
Image For this example, I hid Image the White layer after hiding the Background layer in step #26 (then continued at step #27 as normal).  All other settings are the same as the tag directly above.  When saving this tag, choose Optimized Median Cut (instead of Optimized Octree) on the Colors tab.
Image Thank you to Vicky B. for coming up with the idea to use a dingbat font for this technique!  For this example.  I used a dingbat font, Ladybug Dings (capital D) size 100.  All other steps of the tutorial are the same.
I'd love to see your results!
