Congratulations, you did!

In this tutorial, you learned how to create a texture using three simple Photoshop filters. Then we made it transparent by reflecting its boundaries. Next, we created two layer styles using the previously created texture. So we recorded an action to make the whole process automatic. And finally, you learned how to customize the colors of the final result.

I hope you have learned something useful with this tutorial. Feel free to leave your comments and results below.
