you can see al the details on Nuvovelt
I tryed some things I have never used befor
but I was not happy with the result
And today I was shopping for an other challenge

So it is useful for me
Playing and looking for more Ideas I just added some wool and some silk on the Lamifix and run it under the embellisher
what you see is the backside it is very soft and
the plastic gifs it a nice shine
