Designing a Diving Wallpaper

Then, as always, set blend mode to Overlay, and opacity to 40-60%. The water drop is ready!

Go
  
to Filters menu - Distort - Spherize, and apply the filter. Adjust % to your liking (60-70 may be enough).

Switch to Eraser (E), select large soft brush, and remove bottom part of image.
 
Diving - making of - Step 56

Now, select all (Ctrl-A), copy (Ctrl-C), close document, paste into our artwork document, and set blend mode to Overlay!
