Edit 11/1/14: I didn't realize how many people were interested in using this, so I updated the design to have stronger colors and I removed the ugly, uneven gradient effect that I tried to give it years ago haha Thank you for those who used the old one and I hope you find this new version is just as or even more appealing than before. c:
If you wish to use this, please read the rules below:
Rules Please or comment before use. No credit needs to be given to me on your page, just please do not claim this background as your own work. You may edit or change anything on here to your heart's content.
Cuz I've always wanted a custom box background like this. ;v; I might edit it later though. I still don't know what it looks like on my page yet until I actually use it, so I might come back and make it darker or lighter, etc, depending on what it looks like.
Oh, and anyone can use it! You don't have to give credit, but if you do, I appreciate it. ouo
hey! i just wanted to let you know that you don't need to credit me. i personally don't care. i've also been asked "whats the code?" a few times. i'm not sure what that means but, if you already know how to put backgrounds in your custom boxes then just copy and paste the image URL and put it where your old background URL was. its simple, just look up a tutorial if you don't know.
I didn't post this as a Custom Box BG before because I posted it as an expirament for me to try well what can I say, it worked! So here goes
If you're a Premium member you can use this in the background of your "Custom" boxes [link] This will show you how The trick that worked for me is under the "Direct link to image location" what you need to do is right click the image and then click "copy image location" and then paste it into the "direct link to image location"
