"Universal Language" Game ART Trinket Box - Lost Coast Portal to Creativity NUMBERS Challenge!

Howzit Dominioans!
Boy oh boy has Blogger being playing games today!  But looks like I managed to kick the gremlin out so here's my DT post for today!

I made this altered game art trinket box for our current Challenge - #13 Numbers over on our new Event Challenge Blog called Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!  Do stop by if you haven't yet because you're missing out on all our Grand Opening Celebrations with loads of prizes up for grabs!

I had a ball creating this piece and used the following Lost Coast Designs stamps:
 Time FliesATC Misc 7 Set and Numbers Border

  I used 4 standard size dominoes, a playing card, a real die and 4 dice beads to create this fun piece.
I coated the top surfaces of all 4 dominoes with Brilliance Pearlescent Cosmic Copper and a touch of Pearlescent Crimson Copper and heat set the ink.  I stamped two of the dominoes with different portions of the Time Flies image with the face and the other two with portions of the measuring tape ATC stamp.  I left the edges of the dominoes white and stamped those with the Numbers border stamp.  All stamping was done black Archival Ink and heat set before sealing with Judikins Diamond Glaze and then assembled.  I used a fancy playing card for clever little insert piece.  It's actually a very tall and narrow playing card which I had to cut down to size in the middle and re-attach.  I had hand wrote the Universal Language quote with black Sharpie marker on the card face and stamped more numbers on the back.  The large dice was a adhered to playing card insert and the dice bead added to the base once I added a base cut from black cardstock.

 Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

D'ART Guest Designer: "Steampunk" Altered Domino accessories set!

Howzit Dominoians!
You are all in for a fabulous Guest Designer tutorial today!
Please join me in welcoming back An English Lady with Part 2 of one of her favourite techniques, clay stamping!

 In the 1st part "Roses" altered domino punk style jewelry AEL created a punk themed accessory set out of dominoes by stamping into clay using a positive stamp.  She also provided you with a step by step tutorial detailing how to take the technique further.  Check it out if you missed it!

For this 2nd part she has created a Steampunk accessory set using a negative stamp.  She increased the depth of stamping on one of the dominoes, to add drama to the piece and added metal embellishments and wire (to draw the eye in). These changes are very quick and easy to make. AEL has included a quick step by step tutorial for today's project and you can see the 3 main types of impressions on the "Roses" tutorial HERE!

For this project AEL created a Steampunk look using Docrafts' Looking Glasses Urban Stamp. As an English Lady she loves to support British Companies, which create good quality products and best of all these are available in the States too.

Please click on each photo to enlarge and follow along with her tutorial!
We would love to see your projects using the clay technique too so feel free to share links to your projects in the comments of this post!

both of her fabulous projects are on display in this photo
Thank you for visiting DominoART today!

Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop with Smeared and Smudged!

Howzit Dominoians!
Welcome to the 2nd of my blogs playing in this year's Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop hosted by the fabulous Smeared and Smudged team!  Thanks so much for hopping with us today!

a peek at my entire S.A.D collection
Here's the blog roll to keep you going and if you stopped by here first then start the hop at the beginning on Black Dragon's blog, you do not want to miss all the fangtastic skullie eye candy being shared today!

 Here's my 2nd Smeared and Smudged DT project for today - an Amazonian Amulet found in the clutches of a doomed treasure hunter!
Doublecross Domino "Amazonian Amulet"
I used one of Smeared Ink's feathered skull rubber stamps from their Fringe set on this one.
I stamped the wooden Doublecross domino with black Archival Ink, heat set the image and then coloured the design with Sharpie markers in my signature Sharpie Domino Queen technique.  I then added a red and gold tear drop sticker jewel to the feathered head piece.  To complete the necklace I wired wrapped the domino a few times with thin black craft wire with the skull charm attached and added the bail by twisting the wire on one of the passes round.  The skull charm was silver toned so I coloured it with a brown Sharpie to give it a more aged gold tone and then added the brown suede cord necklace to complete the look.
