Tons of texture challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar

(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday DT post)

This week's challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar is tons of texture - I loved this one!!  You need to use at least two different types of texture on your creation and this is what I came up with...



I couldn't tell you where I bought my texture from - it's all recycled stuff that I found rooting around!  But as you can see, there's some sort of hessian for the background and the raffia (probably from a bouquet of flowers) wrapped around the matting.

This was so fun to make - I hope you get a chance to play too!  The other DT cards are at their best so get your shot of inspiration here!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Granola papers
Stamps: TGF Creeper Crew collection 1
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink in Antique Linen 
Accents: raffia and hessian
Tools: Nestabilities star dies, Tim Holtz distressing tool
