Add some Metal for TioT

It's time for a new Challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time it's 'Add some Metal'  as usual it's up to you what you make and how you interpret this, as long as we can see some metal.
I decided on a canvas with some metal embellishments.  After a coat of Gesso, I dry brushed it with mix of PaperArtsy Snowflake and Taupe, then embossing paste through the TH Gothic stencil and also TWC script stencils. I dry brushed on a little more Taupe around the edges just to shabby it up a bit.  My flowers were all hand made in different shades so I gave them a thin coat of Gesso as I wanted some paler colour to show through. and as a contrast I coloured the leaves with Peeled paint and Forest moss DIs.  The wooden embellishments and chipboard letters were Gessoed and then distressed with Frayed Burlap before highlighting with Bronze gilding wax.  The pen nib and little washers were rusted with Alcohol inks and wax.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the details.
I am entering this at:

Can you believe I have never made a canvas Avril. I own lots of different sized canvases but just haven't got around to using any of them.

Love this one and it has totally given me inspiration so I just might have a go soon.

Whoopee another project to add to the list that should keep me going for a while.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x
