Adventure is worthwhile in itself.

Today I have my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and this week I am showcasing one of my favourite sets Charles and Amelia.
I wanted to create something a little different so opted for a canvas this week full of rusty texture and dimension.
My focal image from the Charles and Amelia stamp set has been stamped onto white card and coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then flicked with water to age. I then adhered my focal image to my canvas.
This picture shows the fabulous textures and amazing crackle along with the touches of Mega-Flakes added randomly around the canvas.
I have included step by steps for this canvas on my blog.
I have also added a Prima Marketing embellishment to the top of my monocle along with a Remnant Rub for added interest.
I have also included a few rusted mini sprockets which again have been rusted and aged.
The focal image from the Artistic Outpost Charles and Amelia stamp set has been encased behind a vintage monocle and I have added a Remnant Rub to the top and aged a little with a touch of Rust Alcohol Ink.
I stamped the sentiment "Adventure is worthwhile in itself" from the Charles and Amelia stamp set, stamped onto white card with Black Archival Ink and coloured around the edges with paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
