Fortune Telling Game Designed For Alpha Stamps

The challenge from Alpha Stamps for this piece was to come up with artwork that used dominoes and tiny dice.  I thought about doing a domino book or a piece of jewelry but eventually decided to create a Fortune Telling Game.
The overall height of the piece is 6 ½” high and by 3 ¼” wide.  I built the area holding the dominoes from chipboard.
On one side of the domino is a picture of a tarot card that I colorized using colored pencils and gold paint.  On the opposite side of the domino is the fortune.  The dice acts as the pull.
