In this tutorial, we will travel back to the basic technique of Stamp Tool (S) and Brush Tool (B) to create dynamic and effective particles on the red cloth as shown below. This technique can be used on any objects that you wish to add more effects on.
Along the way, we will go through the use of blending options, path tool, image adjustment tools, warp tools and other selection techniques.
You will need a nice model picture and a vector graphic for this tutorial.

Open the dancing girl image and duplicate it. Next, mask out the girl using Path Tool (P).
Click on the Add Layer Mask.
Next, use the Brush Tool to remove unwanted effects surrounding the girl so only important areas (such as the ends of the red cloth) will stand out. This will be helpful in creating the effects we are going to achieve later in this tutorial.
Now its the time to enhance the background and to create a more rythmic atmosphere to match the dancing girl.
Open a vector image,

As a final step to enhance the overall image, select the bottom area of the image and set Feather value: 100px. Last but not least, go to Adjustments Layer to improve its Hue & Saturation for a better output.
Good Luck Trying!
