MWLW New Release~ Steampunk Mini Canvas

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

I'm here to share a card I made for

Today, we have a picture perfect new release with Young Lady Penelope

How awesome is this steampunk image?

I made a lil' mini canvas and tried a different technique of coloring different shades of browns on tissue paper. 
I started by priming my canvas with Gesso and then coloring with Black acrylic paint. Used Tim Holtz Harlequin Stencill for some texture; by applying a thin coat of Gel Medium, I was able to keep it white against my sprays. :o) I then sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang and Heidi Swapp sprays. Using a bit of gesso again, I achieved the background color I wanted.  

I printed the image onto tissue paper and colored with different shades of Browns in SN Markers and applied it with Gel Medium to my canvas.
I think if I did this again, I'd use a heavier paper for contrast. But still liked the aged look it lent to my canvas.

I used steampunk images from the internet and added some Metal Corners. I finished with Gear die cuts from Memory box which I embossed with Copper, gold and Champagne EP's. 
 The key is from my stash, which I sprayed with Tim Holtz Copper Spray. 

Hope you like my take on a mini steampunk canvas.
