Dominoes are a fun substrate to use in any of your mixed media work. You can turn them into a piece of jewelry, you can use them as a focal image on a greeting card, or as a fun embellishment on a mixed media canvas.
Here is is quick video tutorial for this fun little domino, which I turned into a necklace. I will also show you a fun technique for turning it into a piece of faux rusted metal. Again, the same techniques can be used for decorating your dominoes for any project. So have fun with them and enjoy.
I also made a quick and easy matching card to give to someone special, along with the necklace.
I simply stamped the angel image onto a piece of print paper with black archival ink.Then I used Caran d'ache Neocolor II water soluble crayons to partially color the image.
I used a straight edge ruler to tear around the image, leaving a bit of distress edging, which I highlight with a white pigment ink pad, for a shabby look. Then I adhered the image to a blue card. Simple!
