When I first started doing this, I was really into bright colors, like yellow. I wanted to do something fun with the I heart Acupuncture stuff. So I tried this. Today, I'd work harder at getting the needles really clear. I didn't use software to put them in the pin cushion--just adding the background and wording. Originally I worked with a little branch coming up as if it were growing to make the heart flower shaped, but it was too much. Also my husband thought it looked a bit too much like the plant in Little Shop of Horrors, and I had to admit he was right!
