I had the idea to emboss silk velvet using the texture plates, but instead of running it through my machine, I used a steam iron to set the fibers. Then I inked over the raised areas to create a stronger pattern. I embellished the medallion with a Vintage Swarovski crystal - which was the perfect color and bling.
I die cut several metallic fabrics, which would normally fray, but I backed them with Vellum first, before running it through my Grand Caliber, and it did great!
I'm off to work on my final two projects!
