It really isnt advisable to have a tarp under your tarp or a tarp bigger than your fly under your tent.
When it rains all the water will puddle on the tarp and in heavy rains you will risk getting lots of water sitting under your tent.
I use shade cloth under my tent so if water does get under it it can drain away. You can buy a matting style material similar to the anti slip stuff for under the tarp if you really need it.

When we use our tent, we put down a poly tarp about the size of the tent. Also, shade cloth can be might slippery when damp (if using it as ground matting) so be careful walking on it.
I'm prepared to be educated ;)
