Now change blending mode of this layer to Multiply.
Awesome! I think, crack texture itself is too flatty. For fixing this, create new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N, Layer > New > Layer..., or shortcut), and pick 1px soft brush. Draw some strokes on the edges of crack.
You'll create particles on skin - your work will be more dynamic. Create new layer. Pick Clone Stamp Tool (S). Set any kind of debris/particles brush or use Photoshop preset brush - Rough Round Bristle. Click by holding alt, where it's marked. Then, click on her skin. Play with it as you want.
Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N, Layer > New > Layer..., or shortcut). Do the same as in 52 step, but use bigger brush. Also, you can change brush to any kind with particles/debris/dust, for better effect.
At new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N, Layer > New > Layer..., or shortcut). Repeat step 53. Use bigger brush. Then, from top menu choose Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur.
For creating sparks just create new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N, Layer > New > Layer..., or shortcut) and draw randomly some dots and small strokes. Use hard, round brush (with pressure size) - 15px, orange. Small arrows will guide you! :)
Give some glow! Click with RMB on created layer. Go to blending options and check "Outer glow".
Again, dynamics. From top menu click Filter > Blur > Motion blur. Sparks will be looks like flying around! :).
Place "Hanging branches" stock in the left corner of your picture.
In my desired photo manipulation, branches should be at the first plan. For make it, click Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur, then set it as is shown.
As you can see, stock image is too bright. Fix it by adding Adjustment layer with Hue/Saturation. Then, after setting, click on it with RMB, and choose "Create clipping mask".
I'll also fix Brightness/Contrast on this layer. Add adjustment layer with Brightness/Contrast. Then, after setting, click on it with RMB, and choose "Create clipping mask".
Now add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N, Layer > New > Layer..., or shortcut), click on it with RMB, and choose "Create clipping mask". Pick huge, soft brush. Draw strokes near doors - where lights goes.
You should decrease created layer opacity to 5%.
So far, so good :). You'll duplicate group of layers. By holding ctrl mark "Hanging branches" and all layers above. Then, drag and drop it on New layer symbol.
From duplicated layer, delete light on branches - drag and drop it to trash icon.
Transform duplicated "Hanging branches" as shown.
In your color case set #ff9100 color as primary. Then add adjustment layer with Gradient fill (shortcut or Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Gradient Fill).
Change blending mode of this layer to Soft light. Decrease opacity to 20%. It will make glow around.
At the end, add adjustment layer with Color/Balance (shortcut or Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color/Balance). Set it as is shown. You can freely play with this settings, so you can get other results! :).
