Domino swap

I used a bamboo tile for this swap, coloured with Alcohol ink, edged with silver Krylon pen and stamped with part of a stamp from Our Daily Bread Design set called Birds and Butterfly labels. Finished with a touch of silver glitter and varnished the domino so it could be used as a pendant. Added some beads to finish. 


See side bar for video with all the beautiful altered dominos in the swap

I had trouble getting a good photo that showed the blue glittery material I covered the mask card with and the shimmery pink paper round the eyes, but I hope you get a feel of how it looks in real life. Pop over to Cardmaking Paradise to see lots more ways to decorate this template.

My style.

Not really sure i have a specific style as I love making all kinds of cards/projects but this is what i'm entering for the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this week, does it show who I really am ............well i'll let you decide!

Crafty Individuals background paper, stamped text with gold gel pen to highlight, as has parts of the bodice. Flower made from paper i used when spraying glimmermist on something, punched scallop circles sprayed with water and scrunched up . When dry layered and added gold button to centre.

No ink ...........

That makes a change. Its been a while since I made a card and didn't have inky fingers. Lovely Dufex fairy decoupage on dry embossed mats and layers with some die cut corners as embellishments and a ribbon to finish.
