Lets begin with the final result of this tutorial, so we will get an idea about what we are going to create next.
Create a new document. In layer panel create a new layer, ‘Layer 1’ and fill it with any color. Right click on ‘Layer 1’ and select blending options. Apply gradient effect with the settings as shown below.
All some flower and you can download it here image. Rename the layer as ‘Flower’ and position it above ‘Layer 1’.
Note: if you can use your own flower also much more creative you are.
Step 3 Right click on ‘Flower’ layer and choose ‘Duplicate layer’ to make a copy of flower layer. Apply Gaussian blur effect, (filter &go to blur then gaussian blur) to this layer. Keep the radius as 5.7 pixel. Next, move the ‘Flower copy’ layer below ‘Flower’ laye.
Now comes the fun part, applying flames effect to the flower image! Using smudge tool spread the edges of the leaves.
See image for your understanding
Step 5 For the background flame effect, take any fire image which is suitable for your flower image. Here I have used fire flame to make it as a shadow and smoke behind the flowers. Download here is the fire flame image. Rename the layer as ‘Flame’. Using smudge tool spread the edges of the flames, repeat this process until you see the following result.
Then move the ‘Flame’ layer below ‘Flower copy’ layer. Change the layer style to 'Lighten' and set the opacity to 20%.
The result be like this.
Step 6 Now we are coming very close to the ultimate burning flower effect. Take any fire image and cut the flames from it and keep this ‘Flames’ layer below ‘Flower copy’ layer. Move those cut flames to the suitable area of the flower image and blend the flames with flower image using smudge tool. Please see below images to understand this process better. Repeat step 6 for all the areas of flower image where you want the flames to come out.
Step 7 this is the final step. Well go back to our first flower which is on the top of the copy layer. Just right click on that layer and give it as a Gradient overlay in white color
There you go, a stunning fire effect is ready! Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
