Dominos v2.0

I told you last week that I'd be back with more altered dominoes for the domino challenge over at Third Coast Creative Coterie Challenge Blog, so here they are.

This time I stamped the images onto cardstock, colored them with Copic markerss, adhered the stamped, colored cardstock to the dominoes with gel medium. When it was dry, I sanded off the excess paper from the edges of the dominos. They were heat emboss with clear embossing powder and a layer of Glossy Accents was added to them. Then they were left overnight to cure completely.

When that was done, I colored the edges of the dominoes with Pentel Metallic pen. Ultra-stinky E6000 was used to adhere large pewter beads to the top of the dominoes to act as bales.

The dominoes were left in the garage for a few days to become dry and less stinky. When I could deal with them, I added leather cording and took the photos of the necklaces posed on a black office chair. If you look closely, you can see the cat fur on the chair. How exciting!

I should mention that I used a rub-on from Wordsworth/Rubber Soul for "dance" on the dancer domino. I also used metallic pens by Pentel on the sides of the dominoes.

The stamps that I used were Wise Old Wizard Small (DT-114-D) from Third Coast's Early Spring '07 supplement and Chile Ristra (AP-184-G) from Third Coast's Summer '05 supplement.

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Kathi, thanks for my giggle of the day! (BTW, I can't see the cat hair--but then, my vision isn't what it used to be.)
    These are really cool--all the time and the work were worth it! Especially love the old owl wizard! :^)

  2. Love it... hair and all! Great idea... might have to steal it (hehe)

  3. I was looking forward to seeing more of these - they look so darn good!!! Not sure I've got the patience to wait inbetween the stages :)

  4. Very cool technique and love how they've turned out!
