Forever Dark DT share for our July Challenge!

Howzit Dominians!
We've had some unfortunate setbacks to our Forever Dark Challenge blog that launched with our 1st Challenge in June but we're back without much of a hiccup.  Nothing else has changed besides our blog name, from Forever Dark Challenges to Forever Dark 2 and new challenges still start on the 1st Tuesday of every month!

Now for our July Challenge #2 Anything Goes!   
We have THREE fabulous sponsors this month and it was a pleasure to get to create with the images they provided us with!  Thank you so much sponsors!

  I'm sharing two projects over on my LeighSBDesigns blog as well today featuring Kenny K and Lacy Sunshine so I hope you'll pop on over to see them :0)

Here's my 3rd Forever Dark DT project featuring the digi stamp called Raven the Dom by Limited Runs!  I couldn't resist making an altered Doublecross Domino pendant with this gorgeous girl.

I adjusted Raven in Photoshop CS6 to fit the size of a Doublecross Domino but somehow still managed to cut off her feet, oops, that's what happens when you're creating in the early hours of the morning! I printed her out onto regular printer paper and coloured her with Copic markers.  I then made a decal with her by first cutting the image to the size of the domino and I then applied two coats of DecoArt Triple Thick glaze to the design.  Once the glaze was dry I applied water to the back of the image and gently rubbed away the paper to leave behind a semi-translucent image which I was then able to adhere to the surface of the domino with Triple Thick glaze.  Decals are a fun way to use digi stamps on dominoes and avoid that "paper stuck down" look.  I turned her into a pendant and adhered a jewelry dual pin and bail to the back and hung it on purple suede cord.


I hope all my projects today have inspired you and I'll see you over at Forever Dark Challenges!

Alice in Wonderland Push Pins set - AIW Blog Hop!

Howzit Dominoians and Happy 4th of July!

Most of you know how much I love Alice in Wonderland and my passion for AIW goes hand in hand with my passion for altered game art.  When I was invited to participate in an Alice in Wonderland blog hop to celebrate the 150th Birthday of the Book hosted by Suzi Baker McKensie I could not resist!  I wasn't sure if I was going to get the blog roll in time before I'm away from my computer for a while so more names could have been added to the blog roll already but Suzi kindly let me still play and provided the blog roll early enough for me to add at least a partial list to my post!  Thx Suzi for your understanding and letting me still play!

Alice in Wonderland illustration stamps available at Lost Coast Designs, we have a whole category dedicated to Alice so stop by and check them all out!

Today we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, and what better way to do that, than to share lots of creative projects inspired by this wonderful story.

Not only will you see lots of amazing artwork today, but you can also win prizes from the following amazing companies;







Prize winners will be selected from Random blogs throughout the hop using Random.org to select each winner.  In order to be eligible for a prize you must visit all stops on the hop and leave a comment. The prize draws will be open until July 18th, with winners announced on July 20th.

Today I'm sharing a set of altered Bendomino "Alice in Wonderland" Push Pins.  I love using Bendominoes for my Alice projects, which are curved dominoes, coz the quirkiness of their shape ties in so nicely with the quirkiness of the entire Wonderland story!

The Alice in Wonderland illustration stamps I used are available at Lost Coast Designs.  We have a whole category dedicated to Alice so stop by and check them all out!


I used the tri-colour Pearlescent Brilliance ink pad called Tiramisu to create the variegated background on the surface of all 4 Bendominoes and heat set before stamping the Lost Coast Designs Wonderland images with black Archival ink and then heat set again.  Each Bendomino was edged with a broad point metallic liquid gold DecoColor paint pen and Tim Holtz paper tape with a script design, cut in half to fit, was applied around the sides.  I used Judikins Diamond Glaze to seal the design and the sides of all the Bendominoes and adhered flat topped metal push pins to the backs with E6000 glue.

I look forward to hopping to see your fabulous AIW inspired projects but I'm away from my computer for a bit and will comment on them all as soon as I can!  Thank you for visiting with me today and for leaving me some love!  Your next stop is Claudia!
