Duplicate this layer and then with the Warp transform tool, try to change its shape like this:
Then merge (Cmd/Ctrl+E) both the layers and name it ‘ivy 1’.
Now create a new layer below the ivy, name it ‘shadow’. We will now paint some subtle shadows using a soft, black brush with Opacity – 15% and Flow –12% under the ivy.
To create some lighting and shadows for it, I applied an Inner Shadow and Drop shadow layer style.
To remove the drop shadow effect from the unwanted parts, right-click on the ivy layer and select ‘Create Layers’.
And then erase the shadows from the part shown below using a layer mask:
Reduce the Drop Shadow layer’s Opacity to 75%.
I created a Levels adjustment on the ivy and applied the following changes on the Blues channel to give it a bit of light bluish color.
Create a second Levels adjustment to brighten the darken leaves of the ivy. Fill its layer mask with colour black and using a soft white brush, bring back the effect on the dark leaves.
Desaturate the leaves by adding a Hue/saturation layer.
I added some contrast by applying some shadow and lighting.
So create two layers of Levels adjustment, one for lighting and the other for shadows.
Then fill their layer masks with black and with foreground colour set to white, brush on it to reveal back the result from the areas shown below;
Group the ivy and its adjustment together and name it ‘Ivy1’.
To add further lighting effect on the ivy, create a new layer above the group and set it as a clipping mask. Pick soft colour #bda95d and paint along the edges of the ivy where the light is coming from. Set the brush’s opacity – 26% and flow – 20%.
Change the blend mode to Color Dodge – 100%.
Extract the ivy 2 from the background. Copy a part of them and place it on the side of the bottle:
Continue adding the ivies on the bottle using the same method. I used 9 layers for this effect:
Group the ivies layers and name it ‘Ivy 2”. Use Hue/Saturation to desaturate the ivies:
I used two Curves adjustment layers to add more contrast and match the lightness of the ivies with the rest.
