Steampunk Canvas

Good evening fellow crafters, I'm here tonight to bring you my latest DT creation for Memory Maze. I wanted to do something a bit different yet again and chose to go wild with this SteamPunk themed canvas.

Steam Punk Canvas

So I started off by preparing this 8"x8" canvas with white Gesso, then before it dried I quickly sprinkled over some Silver Opal embossing powder. When it was heated up, it gave a great melted metal look.
Next I used a MM Brick stencil and Modelling Paste with Gold embossing powder coating it. I loved the look of it bubbling when it was being heat dried. Added that extra special Steampunk feel.
I added a little bit of colour to the base with some Distress Inks. And topped it off with a few dashes of Barn Door ink to compliment the chipboard piece that will be featured in the middle of the canvas.
Now it was onto colouring the chipboard pieces. Again, I covered some Cogs in the Silver Opal powder and the centre Steampunk piece with Distress Powder.
Special mention to my awesome VersaMark watermark ink pad.. It has lasted me at least 6 years so far and I have only just re-inked it tonight. I probably didn't need to be just yet, but when I was going through some draws finding Steampunk goodie ideas, I found the re-inker bottle. So while still fresh in my mind... lol..
So the final touches were to hot glue everything down! I added some extra cogs to the other corners. I have used the Silver Opal powder again and two distress inks to softly colour them.
Embellished with plenty of Steampunk themed goodies like; train, key, clock, pins etc..
