Texture - Simon Monday Challenge

Did someone say TEXTURE?

Oh yeah! Simon said that :-) 
And this is what I love the most. 
This is when I spread my creative wings.

Are you going to join us? 
The theme itself is a good motivation but there is more:

Today I am debuting with texture made with simple tissues which I glued to the tag with Mod podge and sprayed strongly with variety of Distress Spray Stains, applied Distress Stains in dabber and Dypusions White and Black paints. My heat tool had a tought job to dry it all. When the surface was still wet, I applied randomly some Gold Embossing Powder and some white gravel. When I was quite satisfied with my background colors, I just embellished it with some twine, metal details and self made flowers. The flowers were neutral originally but I applied gesso on the petals unevenly and put quite the same colors as for my background. I like the result. I hope it could be an inspiration for you too!
