Snowman Domino Pins




This last week at my group meeting we played with dominoes. I haven't really stamped on them before so it was more like "what not to do when stamping with dominoes"! In all the dominoes I sanded them first and then colored them all with watercolor pencils and an aqua painter.
In the first picture I covered the domino with crystal effects. The color really faded once the crystal effects were on. Mine is old, so I don't know if that is why is dried a little discolored too. The domino didn't look white anymore.
In the second picture I didn't use crystal effects I just sprayed the domino to seal it with a matte spray. Of course I sprayed too close and the image smeared a bit (I do that EVERY time!)

The last picture I like the best (besides the air bubbles). I covered it with Arlene's clear tacky glue and let it dry.
It was fun to see what worked best. Leave me a comment and let me know what you use on your dominoes! Thanks! Have a great weekend! :)

What a fabulous pin idea. I love wearing pins so I might just have to get my dominos out.
