It's Spring! Time for greens and purples and lots of white . . .
When the original image could use a little more definition, I've learned that it's OK to cheat and add in a few touches of your own. In this case, the leaves on the die cut were looking a little flat: too much broad, uninterrupted surface. So I put in a few dots and sketchy lines to suggest veining. As subtle as it is, it made all the difference.
Over the years, I've been amazed at how many times a few dots have saved the day. Tiny and therefore non-threatening, dots are easy to add even if you're a little timid about your drawing skills.
