This is pretty simple.

before I teach you how to make it, here's what we're doing to make:

:AddNewLayer: Open an image first with the size of 400x400

1. Use the rounded rectangle tool and make something like this. (Remember, change the primary colour to black, and secondary colour to white first)

2. Use the rounded rectangle tool and make something like this. But this time, change it to draw filled shape with outline.

3. Then draw something like this. Change it to draw filled shape first. And change filled type to Dark downward diagonal.

4. Next, Zoom Blur(effects>Blur>Zoom blur) it. Make it like this.

5. Pencil Sketch(Effects>Artistic>Pencil Sketch) it. Full settings.

6. :AddNewLayer: Add a new layer. Make it above the layer you jsut did Pencil Sketch on.

7. Do a Mandelbrot Fractal(Effects>Render>Mandelbrot Fractal). Make it like this.

8. Do a Splinter(Effects>Blur>Splinter). Make it like this.

9. Do a Zoom blur. Make it Zoom amount 51 again.

10. Next change the layer you just did zoom Blur on to the blending mode Difference. Do that by clicking F4. It will look some what of a firey effect.

11. On the layer below the firey effect. Do a splinter like this.

12. Merge the 1st layer down. So now, you only ahve 1 layer to work with.

13. Do some Curves.(Adjustments>Curves) Set to Luminosity. I did it like that.

14. :AddNewLayer: Add a new layer. Make it above the layer you just did Curves on.

15. Fill the wholve canvas blur with the Paint Bucket. (Hex: 0026FF) Remember to change it to Solid Colour. You can also use some other colours. But remember to use dark ones. However, don't use Black or white!

16. Now, add some Noise(Effects>Noise>Add Noise). Intensity 100, Colour Saturation 0 and Coverage to 100. after that, repeat that for 2 times. It should look like that afterward.

17. Do a Motion Blur.(Effects>Blur>Motion Blur). Set Angle to 25, and Distance to 40.

18. On the layer you did the motion blur on. Do some Clouds(Effects>Render>Clouds). Remember to change the colour to black. And change the blending mode to Colour Burn.

19. Change that layer's blending mode(press F4) to anything. Although I suggest Addictive, Colour Dodge, Reflect, Overlay, Difference, Negation, Lighten or Screen. The one I did below is Screen.

20. Done! :D
