Apply a Bevel & Emboss and Inner Shadow layer style on it:
Then create a new layer under the bottom ivy layer, we will now paint some shadows. Take a soft black brush of Opacity – 23% and Flow – 21% and paint the shadows, if you feel it’s too dark, bring down the opacity of the layer to 65%.
Group both these layers together and name it ‘Bottom ivy’.
I added a Hue/Saturation and Color Balance to match them with the rest.
After that, I added two Levels adjustment to darken the ivies:
Then finally add a Curves layer to darken some part of the ivies even more:
Using the same ivy 2 stock, keep adding on the bottle, along the edges and some on the bottom part as well. This is my result:
Group all of them together and name it ‘Bottom ivy 2’.
Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to reduce its saturation.
Create a Levels adjustment to add contrast and darken the ivies.
Add another Levels layer to darken some parts even more:
After that apply a Curves layer to brighten the left side of the ivy:
To make some light effects, I created a new layer in clipping mask for the above group.
With colour #e2dabd, paint over the part of the ivy on the left. Keep the brush’s opacity very low, about 26%. Change the blend mode to Overlay – 100%.
Create more lighting by applying an Inner Shadow layer style for the whole group.
Then by right clicking on the layer style, select ‘Create layer’ and using a layer mask, erase the inner shadow effect from the unwanted parts where it must be dark.
Now create a layer below the ‘bottom ivy’ group. Load the Tendrils brushes, and with the colour # 2c3e26, paint some tendrils under all the ivies to give some effects of dried ivies. I used 11 layers for this effect.
Finally, group all these ivies group together, and then create a new layer above, in clipping mask. This is to recreate the light of the water and night sky falling on the ivies.
So on the first layer using a soft brush of 35% opacity, paint with colour #679db8 over the ivies as shown below:
Then change the blend mode to Color Dodge – 32%.
