This was a small canvas from a well-known poundstore, which was claimed to be ready primed - but if it was, they hadn't used much primer! Still, I took them at their word, and tried brushos as a background colour. It sank into the canvas with great speed, but after several layers I did eventually get a colour I was satisfied with.
I added some grunge paste through a stencil, then more brusho, and stamped an image from gothic fragments in archival black, which faded to a lovely pale grey on the canvas.
The small images from the mini curiosities set (only as a multibuy on the CB site, can be bought individually via The Craft Channel though) were stamped onto stampboard using versafine black, edges coloured with distress inks.
