Three Textures

Hello everyone lovely ATCs last week it was quite a tricky challenge with the colour restriction. Thank you for your kind comments.
we have a great challenge for you this week something to get your teeth into. We are asking for 3 textures to be used on just about anything you like. I have altered a little key cabinet. I painted it with a clay acrylic paint and then washed it over with a sand and also dabbed on the sides to look like texture. The front has been stamped with text and lines in sepia and has had crackle accents applied in small areas. The inset front has texture paste mixed with gold paint applied. The inside of the cabinet has been stained with a mica spray and a embossed piece of card inset and what a shock a little mouse has got into the cabinet LOL Well it hasn't been opened for years. The keys themselves have been cut from card and heat embossed in distressed walnut to look worn and then rubbed with metallic, I also rubbed metallic into the cabinet. What will you do.
Thank you for your visit to my blog and your lovely supportive comments, much appreciated. Do stop by to see what Janet and Chrissie have made. Hugs Sandra x
