The velvet is very shiny so it was extremely hard to photograph. The purple color is more varied and darker than here and has spots of pink and blue on it too. I stitched parts of the background with my sewing machine and parts by hand. I wanted to see if they both worked as well and they do.
This close up shows how raised it is. The panne velvet had a stretch in one direction so I think that is why it has raised so well. I had fun with this lesson and will probably do some more. Next time I will probably buy the silk velvet because it looks so luxurious and intriguing.
