For the longest time I’ve wanted to do something with dominos. Holly in the Marie Antoinette group is hosting a domino book swap so I thought here is my chance. To help us, she provided a great tutorial and a couple of examples. It’s a one for one swap so I make one and receive one in return. I just loved making this book and it will not be my last (I actually made two so I could have on to keep).
Front Domino – I painted the domino with silver alcohol ink then stamped the front domino using black Staz-On ink. I added rub-ons and embellishments.
Back Domino – I painted the domino with silver alcohol ink and added rub-ons and the silver fleur-de-lis.
Side - I edged each of the dominos with silver and black trim. The book is tied together with lace ribbon. I added feet to the bottom of each domino.
Inside – The inside is made of accordion folded cardstock that I decorated with various papers, images and rub-ons. This was the biggest challenge for me because you can’t use bulky embellishments.
