Step 28

Create a new layer called "smoke." Choose the Brush Tool, open the Brush panel and load your smoke brushes (see Step 13 if you forgot how.) Select the "Sampled Brush 3" and click once over the candle flame. To see the names of the brushes, hover your mouse over the thumbnail and wait a moment for the tooltip to appear.

Step 29

Click "File > Place" and choose the playing cards image. Scale it down a bit and then drag the layer below the "alice" group. Add a mask to the layer and brush over some of the cards to thin them out.

Set the layer mode to Linear Burn when finished.

Save your PSD. You have a completed composite, but it still doesn't quite have the right mood. The next several steps will walk you through how to use a few techniques to adjust the lighting and tone of the finished image.

Hold down the Shift key and select all of your layers in the Layer panel. Click "Layer > New > Group from Layers" and name it "Composite." Right-click the group and choose "Duplicate Group." Right-click the group copy and choose "Merge Group." Set the merged layer mode to "Screen" and reduce the Opacity to 60%.
