Yeah I see exactly what you mean (and Leeby). I had a bit of trouble working out what contrast to go for, because one version just looked too artificial, but at the same time I see that it needs to stand out a bit more.
I was going to do a bit more work on this one, and I think I might try the two layers thing
I can see where you're coming from. I did consider using it, but I didn't want to over work it. Although, looking at it again, I think I might give it a go. I think I was focusing more on the contrast, and trying to work out how far to go!
