Red and Black

is this weeks theme over on the Tando creative blog - there have been some gorgeous pieces and today its my turn to share this canvas:-

the base is an atc sized canvas which I painted with London bus paperartsy fresco paint then I added black dress paint to the edges….I also painted a Tando small compass and a small key with black dress paint and a heart with the london bus.  Once dry I added a layer of Ranger crackle glass to the compass and key, and when fully dry I rubbed over the pieces with red treasure gold to hi-light the cracks.  The heart was triple embossed with clear utee.  On the edges I added some black washi tape and added distress inks to some white tape to make it red!  The edges of the canvas had some treasure gold rubbed into them to finish it all off.
