Grungy Canvas for Creative Embellishments

Hi all.  I am up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with a grungy canvas.  I used a paper transfer technique for the base of my canvas.  My favorite part was that the corset was a part of the transfer.  With a little stitching, inking, shading and some trim it pops off the page.  Lots of stamping and inking in the background.  I made a mold of the faucet handle and the rusted the resin so the piece is super light. 

I used the large gears as a back drop behind my image.  I just love them. I rusted the gears and then added patina paint to the top.  I used Modern Masters Iron Paint and Rusting Solution for all the rust.  It works great on chipboard. 
For the embellishment cluster atthebottom, Included flowers, molded pieces, fussy cut images, and an awesome chipboard feather.  Oh my these feathers are so detailed, I just love.  I used varying colors of paint and then heat embossed until it bubbled.  I love the texture it gives. 

Supplies Used:
 large gears
