A key ingredient

I started off with the other plaque that had been painted using crackle medium. Then came the saying that I found online which was perfect for a key that I had picked up as an impulse buy at Michaels a long time ago.


I coated the entire plaque with mod podge and then laid down the piece of burlap. To keep the burlap from fraying I covered the top of it with more mod podge. I had intended to hot glue the key down after everything had dried but in the mean time I had just laid the key down to see how I liked it. Later when I went back to glue the key on I discovered that it did the job itself. The mod podge  surprisingly created a pretty strong bond.

Awww...the only thing is, like yesterday's plaque, is there a way to soften/blend in the cut-out words to the background?
