ATC Inspired by Tim's 2008 Day 3 Tag

This is inspired by Tim Holtz's 2008 Day 3 Tag. The main thing he did was print a photo on sticky back canvas for the background. 
I had some canvas sheets that can go through the printer, and I printed out this door image on the canvas. Then inked the edges with black Distress ink.
 The other technique that caught my fancy was covering metal objects with paper, coloring it and distressing it. I choose a key hole charm and covered it with matte gel, then dictionary paper.
 When the gel dried, sanded the edges.
 Colored it with Distress inks.
 Decided to sand some more, and sprayed with a mister of blue re-inker and perfect pearls.
 Adhered the printed canvas to black card stock. Attached key hole with silver brads, and made a fancy door knob with small charm and silver brad. Adhered key to top and phrase from dictionary page to edge of canvas.
