I found a box of “proper” white dominos in a charity shop for £1.99, well, it would have been rude not to buy them. I have seen dominoes used for making pendants and decorations with stunning results before and thought that this would be my opportunity to experiment on a budget.
I started by directly stamping on the domino using StazOn ink, let’s just say it took quite a few attempts to get it right, and the image is still not as crisp as I would have liked. If I were to want to use a stamp on a domino again I am afraid I would create the whole scene on a piece of paper cut to size, which I would then glue to the domino. The StazeOn wouldn’t completely come off the dominos from my unsuccessful stamping attempts, but no doubt I will find ways of covering it up on later projects.
Once successfully stamped I coloured in the image, added the sky with a Sharpie pen, with added silver stars and snow using translucent micro glitter, followed by a good layer of Ranger Glossy Accents.
Once the Glossy Accents was set, I put a narrow strip of silver adhesive foil round the edges of the domino, it went on like a dream! I then drilled two tiny holes at the top and the bottom of the piece to hold two equally tiny eye screws.
I used E6000 glue to help secure and keep the eye screws in place. Using a split ring I attached a snow flake charm to the bottom screw loop. I now need to find some very narrow white or blue ribbon to thread through the top screw, with perhaps a small bow and/or tiny jingle bells, so that it will then be ready to hang on a Christmas Tree or used as a tag on a parcel.
