dont recall all the steps, but one of the first was to run the 32 band gray and darken some things. then a screen blend over the original and copy merge to new layer. there was a curves in over the top of that somewhere and a hue/sat, both to bring out the reds mostly. after that it was mostly hand painting in the drip.

Not quite a fabric, but...

...you did motivate me to do a stitch. Click on this link for it (381K; doesn't look good if compressed to fit here).
