Texture ATC

The challenge at Tuesday Taggers this week is 'Texture'. The main background is a piece of an old paper plate that I had used to mix up paints and mediums - when it all dried it left some interesting textures and colours. I added a splodge of 'Magic Metal' gold embossing powder and stamped into it using a piece of patterned rubber. The textured paper flower has been run through the cuttlebug using the 'Tiny Bubbles' folder to give it a bit more depth and then lightly covered with metallic rub-on to lift the embossing further. A piece of string, some gluey beads and a clay face - and that's pretty much it. Once I had put the beads around the face, it reminded me of a historical figure.... so I added the little cross and called it 'The Maiden'. The filigree circle just seemed to finish it off.
