Altered Dominoes


A while ago I visited Ink Stains
and was delighted with all the treasures
that were being created there.
I found the details of how to make a Dominoe
accordian book and since then Ive gone on to make
many for myself and my family and as small gifts for friends.
But i had stopped there , so I thought it was time to
have a little play at altering somemore dominoes
and using them for other things .

I got myself some nice new clean felt , a selection of inks
and a new box of dominoes.

Its as easy in that all you do is drop a couple of drops of ink onto the dominoe
and using the ink blending tool with some felt attached to it, blot the dominoe
and the colour emerges
Then stamp on an image, I used versamark at first and it didnt dry so I used black embossing powder and a heat gun to the first batch, then i used black stazon with the next lot and they dried brilliantly. Although I love the embossing I found I lost a little detail in those ones , the image wasnt as sharp.
It wasnt long before i was addicted
and pretty soon I had used up the whole box of dominoes
Even making a 6 tile set which will go into a frame

Ive got a great selection now of dominoes ready to add to projects. Im delighted
with the colours and patturns I love them, needless to say ive been out and bought
more dominoes to make more.

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment its always appriciated .
