QGIS 3 is The World best cartography software IMHO, AFAIK, and one of the most amazing features in QGIS 3 is layer blending of XYZ tiles whose we’ve been grab from Internet (for free).
If you have QGIS 3 and willing to spare your time about 5 minutes, you may follow this guide.

I think max zoom level for both of connections are 8.
If you can’t see clearly through those pics, see my gist … Copy-Paste it…
After adding those connections, simply add both of them into QGIS by double-click them respectively. Arrange layer into similar to this-following-pic:
which is: Black Marble on top of Blue Marble.
Double-click Black Marble, change its layer style … it’s gaya in Bahasa. If you LOCALES is not in Bahasa, please adjust or see something similar to this pic:
Change layer blending mode into Addition. This is the key action here. Voila … your Black Marble now glowing on top of blue marble like my own map …
