The Grass Textured Social Icon Set has been created by Richie Thimmaiah, from RichWorks exclusively for Speckyboy Design Magazine readers and are free to use for both your personal and commercial projects but may not be modified, sold or redistributed.
The icons are packaged with 3 different sizes to suit your needs: 256px, 128px and 64px.
When creating these icons, he used a grass brush tool from the default brush set in Adobe Photoshop CS3 and created an outer boundary, he then pasted the individual logos of social networking sites and then carefully used the same strokes on each icon to achieve the unique result you can see below.
The base image that has been used to create this effect can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bannedwidth/2557905790/.
