Day 11 Glass Powder Sgraffito Challenge

Sketch a vegetable in black glass powder.  The only vegetables left in the fridge are onions, scallion, potatoes and cabbage.  Can you tell it's time to go shopping?  I chose to re-create a savoy cabbage leaf in both positive and negative pics.  The positive, where I removed glass to form the stem and veins took about a minute.  I did try to use the leaf as a stamp, but I couldn't get a clean print.  The negative, took like ten minutes to complete.  It was hard to create the pattern randomly, but within the vein pattern.

Here's my cabbage.  I tried cutting different cross sections to see the different shapes but wasn't feeling any of them.
