The scans just don't do the embossed velvet justice. I thought that was going to be the case, and it is. This dragon fly was on an irridescent velvet. The main color was a dark red. When the light caught the velvet, it glowed with a green color. The embossing melted(?) away the red and left the green, which was a perfect color for the dragonfly. I had picked this piece of velvet because it was the right size with no regard to the color. It was my first try. I'm hooked. I'm trying to get some more rayon/acetate velvet on ebay or elsewhere for cheap.
I played with the image in Photoshop, and you can see the details a little better now.
