Simon Says - show some texture

This week, the Simon Says DT are asking us to show texture.

I was sitting in the office this afternoon and an idea for this just came to me. Looking back at the DT entries, it is very like Sarah's - sorry, I was obviously subconsciously influenced - but I had honestly forgotten!

Took a piece of cardboard packaging and tore the surface randomly.  Added some Terra paste in various places, and some colours of Paperartsy Fresco paint (Old Gold, Mocha Mousse and London Night, with some Honey Dew mixed and splodged together!

Added some 'perfect fx' flakes fromUS Artquest - don't think I've ever used this before, to the painted terra paste.

Found some embroidered fabric in my stash and stuck it to a piece of tissue wrap (can't get a good picture in artificial light with the flash, will try again tomorrow in daylight)

Made a hanger from some fibres tied together and stapled to the cardboard with Tim's tiny attacher.

Added some skeleton leaves and some flowers from my stash
Stamped Dina Wakley's 'Lonely Girl' on a piece of thin white card, tore her out and edged it with old paper and antique linen distress.

As always, Simon Says is offering a gift voucher to one random winner, so good luck!
