PDCC #77

My contribution to the Play Date Cafe challenge is the Green Man, moulded and painted with the lovely Glimmer mists.

I  then used the sun ray embossing folder, in my Cuttle Bug, coloured  with Dissstress Ink 'tattered rose', which looks beige in real light. I used the technique where you use baby wipes and Distress ink refills. Drop one drop of ink onto a folded baby wipe and just swipe.  A lovely result, especially if more than one coloured is used.

 DSST round the edges and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer 'dark bronze lustre'.  You have to be quick with te heat gun on this,as it tend to shrivel in the heat, but, if you are careful, it works well.
