Decorative illustration - domino lamp

 
To pop an object from background to foreground a shadow can be used.

Here is my shadow on a new separate layer. It was created with reflected black to transparency gradient with a little bit of Gaussian blur.

I will crop the image now.

To pop the object even more I will use a Quick mask and use a rounded REVERSE type black to white gradient with blending more set to PIN light.

And here what I’ve got.

Tap Q once again to exit the Q mask mode.

Add a color by adjusting the main layer (the one that has the colored object) with Saturation.

Do not deselect the selection you got from the Qmask manipulations.

Next Step:

Now we got to make the object to look like some kind of lamp. Select the
  
lasso tool with these settings.

Make a selection.

Overlay the selection with black to whit gradient in this direction.

Now remember that shadow we have on the separate layer. Make a copy; Go to layer styles and make a White color overlay.

We got glow (or light) instead of a shadow now.

I’ve made several copies of the lights and drop them on the edges of the object.

Final steps:

Make such kind of selection using lasso tool.

Make a new layer. Overlay the selected with white to transparency layer or just fill it with pure white color.

Drop an inner shadow using a layer styles.
