Day 2 - GIU girl - Dominoes
stamps used: Unity stamps
supplies: dominoes, Colorbox chalk inks, Brilliance black ink, glitter, beads, black cord/thick bakers twine, key rings, charms, glossy accents
Welcome back for day 2 of my GIU girl week.
Today I will be mixing it up a bit by not making any cards ... yes, you heard me no cards today. Today we are playing with dominoes. I took ordinary dominoes added some inks, stamped on them ... made them into necklaces and key ring holders. The main thing to remember is to use a permanent ink and heat set after each color or the color will smear and rub off. After all the ink is dry I stamped the image with Brilliance black ink which also needs to be heat set to become permanent. Don't forget to also add color to the sides and back. Once you are satisfied with the color and stamping ... squirt on some glossy accents and spread it all over the domino. I just used my finger to do this step but if you don't want to use your finger you can use a sponge. Now is the time to add glitter or charms to your stamped domino ... the glitter or charms will glue to domino because of the glossy accents. The glossy accents has to dry on it's own which can take anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours depending how thick it is applied. Did I forget to mention that my dominoes have holes drilled in them in order to thread the black cording for the necklaces and key rings. Just for a little added something, something I wrapped some thick baker's twine around half of the key ring plus added a few beads to the necklaces.
