I used the concrete finish and the moss finish. I love how it looks like it was made with's textured too! Then I added the moss to the edges. There's a light green and a bright green...they look so perfect together. I love the 2 step painting technique! I made a little arched door out of polymer clay. It doesn't open, just glued to the side to look cute. We got
