Plugins:

Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow

Filters Unlimited / Tile & Mirror

Nik Software - Color Efex pro 3.0 / Bi Color User Defined

Tip: If you do not have Nik's software you can make a gradient for step, 8,9 10  with the colors in those staps.  Angle 0, repeats 0. In step 9 and 10 you have to check invert instead of changing the colors. If you do them on a separate layer you could also play with the layer opacity

 

Preparations:

Copy the selection files to the selection folder of PSP

Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, it will be imported automatically

Open the Brush in PSP and export as custom brush ( File - Export - Custom Brush)

 

Used Colors

Foregroundcolor: #797d7e

Backgroundcolor: #bec1c1

Other: #ffffff,  #000000, #3e78b3, #863d0e, #f9d8c8, #f0af96

Note: If you are using colors of your own start with the grey ones, you will change the colors later with the Nik's filter
