Pine Needles Embossing Folder Stamping

On a whim I bought the Pine Needles embossing folder
by Richard Garay...and I actually used it. Sometimes I buy things and they sit forever!

This is embossing folder stamping technique I used:  Dabbed the twisted citron distress inkpad directly onto the raised side of the embossing folder, spritzed with water, added paper, closed the embossing folder and pressed it down with my hands. 
The ink was transferred to the paper in a distressed look.  
I did NOT run it through my Cuttlebug. 
Since I was in a hurry, I used my heat tool to dry it, but you can let it air dry.

Stamps: Michael Strong, Verses Rubber Stamps
Distress inks: twisted citron, wilted violet, fossilized amber, ripe persimmon
SU ink: wild wasabi
