Another challenge is on at the BrakeFast Club. The challenge this week is to make a project other than a card. I love making altered items, so this was an excellent time for me to make this cute little altered domino. I am really into altering dominoes for some strange reason the last few months. I made a bunch a couple months ago for a craft show and realized how easy they were to do and now I'm hooked.
Image: Sun & Stars - I Brake for Digis
Paper: Wausau Exact Index 110# cardstock
Tools & Embellishments: Copic & Sharpie markers, Iridescent medium (Windsor & Newton), plastic domino game piece, Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
I printed the image out on white card stock 1" x 2" then coloured it with copic & sharpie markers. I painted on a little iridescent medium on the sun & stars to give them a little sparkle (doesn't show up very well in the picture. Once everything was dry, I glued the image to the smooth side of the domino. Since the image had square corners and the domino has rounded corners, I just saturated the corners with white glue and shaped them to the domino. After the glue dried, I used a black sharpie and coloured the sides of the domino (mine are white) so that it matched the image better. After I was sure everything was dry (I let it sit overnight), I coated it with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Mod Podge Dimensional Magic is a clear coating just like crystal effects, but you can get it at Walmart. I did a product review on this stuff in this post if you're interested in reading it. Once I get a flat back bail for it, I will adhere that to the back and run a chain so I can wear it as a necklace.
You should get in on this challenge. It really is a lot of fun. You should also try making an altered domino if you haven't yet. They're fairly inexpensive. I found mine in the cheap bins at Michaels with a bunch of kids toys. I paid $3 for a set. If you want to use the same image I used, you can find it here in the IBFD shop.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
Talk to you later...
