Then, bring the layer that is invisible wiht ur render all the way to the top and make it visible by pressin the eye again.

duplicate the layer and go to filter>>gaussian blur
put around 5-10 radius and den put the layer as overlay. if that loox too dark try color dodge or soft light. or u can just go down through all the styles of layers until it loox good.

i used soft light and lowered the opacity to bout 40%
den i duplicated the layer and used motion blur and put it on colordodge with the opacity as 30%
heres mine so far

i started brushin round the render on a new layer with white and put it on overlay. then i used a black brush and did the same to blend in the render a bit more.
den add ur text and if u want a border make a new layer
the 3px border is the common one.
after u make a new layer press ctrl+a
it should select the layer
den go to edit>>stroke
put it to 3px and choose to color to whatever u want
and press ok then go to edit>>stroke again and where it says normal, put it to clear. put it to 2px and press ok
then go to edit>>stroke again and put 1px and change the clear to normal and put the color as the one that u first used for the 3px stroke.

u can add more effects to it
heres what i ended up with
