Distressed Pincushion Jar-ALMOST FAIL

In my recent obsession with distressed jars/glass I tried a project that almost ended up in FAIL...
After my distressed masons turned out  so amazingly nice, I wanted to give this new project a new twist and figured out that, instead of using black spray paint as an underlay I could use other colours. The result? not so fabulous as I expected, but,  you know what? It is very cute!

Problem is: the cute little jar has raised fruit patterns on the glass, and I was expecting to highlight those in cute colours after sanding the top layer.
One can hardy see the fruit patterns, but hey, we can see the colours underneath and in the end I like the (cute) result! 

Pink and green first
Then yellow
I made the cushion the same way as in here 
Distressed with 100 grit sandpaper
awww..I CAN see pink, can you?? (please say YES!!)

ok, ALMOST fail, but yet cute, what do you think??
