Spider Halloween Altered Domino Decoration

This is my second project using the “proper” dominoes I found in a charity shop and just like the first time, stamping directly on the blank side is not as easy as it sounds, as I found that the stamp slid and subsequently smudged.  If I want to use a stamped design on a domino again, I will stamp on paper first and then glue the design onto the domino.

I used Jet Black StazOn ink for the stamping. I’m afraid I can’t remember the make the stamp.

When the ink was dry I added a few tiny silver stars and clusters of three dots here and there and then applied a good layer of Ranger Glossy Accents on top, leaving it to set for 24hrs before adding two googly eyes.

I think the orange and purple ribbon will add the spark of color that it needs. I do like that spider--especially his googly eyes!
