ABC Friday--Altered Dominoes

My duties today as Trendsetter of the week at TSG are to share a project that is Anything But a Card.  I have been itching to try out the altered domino technique so this was the perfect excuse.
This is a really fun craft.  I don't play with my alcohol inks often but they are so beautiful on these dominoes.
For this one I used the beautiful rose image in the "You Are Loved" set.  I inked the domino with the alcohol inks first and then stamped the image in Stazon on some tissue paper.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and then used some Claudine Helmuth Multi medium to attach it to the domino.  I heat embossed all the sides and slightly on the edges of the front with gold embossing powder.  The whole image was covered in Glossy Accents and then sprinkled with a few gold microbeads.

This domino was also alcohol inked.  I used Timber Brown Stazon to stamp one of the branch images from the "Give Thanks" set.  I added some Vintage Photo Distress Stickles on the leaves and popped on a couple of pearl flowers from Making Memories.  I attached Scoretape around all the edges of the domino and then covered them in silver microbeads.  I added Silver Stickles around the edge and covered the whole image with Crackle Accents.

The third domino was inked and stamped with the cat tails image from the "Lucky Duck" set.  Once stamped I used my Copic colorless blender pen to remove the ink from parts of the image.  The sides of this domino were also embossed in gold

This trio will make some mice magnets for my refrigerator and I imagine they will be getting some more company since this was so much fun.
Back tomorrow with my final Trendsetter of the week project, Stampbook Saturday.
