Each time I use a domino it brings me back to how I acquired them… One day as I was taking Ansley someplace after school when she was around 13 or 14 years old, as we were about to leave the neighborhood I noticed dominoes scattered all over the street. Well, I’m sure you can see where this is going… I immediately stopped the car (thankfully, we live in a quiet neighborhood) and had her jump out to pick up as many as she could out of the road. I just could not stand the thought of these getting ruined by cars driving over them again and again. Well, Ansley was able to pick up all of them and not one car passed down the street. She on the other hand was horrified that I would have her do such a thing because you know… it had nothing to do with her safety it was that one of her friends could have seen her. Anyway, just a funny memory I reflect on each time I use one.
To create your piece of Domino Art, first stamp the lady from my Antiquated Collection ~ Society Lady Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival Ink, then carefully fill in the stamped areas using Alcohol Inks of your choice. I used one of the Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Refillable Pens I filled with Blending Solution and carefully colored in the blank areas of the stamped image.
I gently dabbed the alcohol inks on as too much pressure would make the black stamped image disappear. Most likely should have used Memento Ink since I was using an alcohol based ink to color it in. But I did get this too work beautifully with a gentle touch. So key words today are… very gentle touch or change the ink to Memento.
I have a few drops of my favorite Alcohol Inks dried in a plastic paint palette so all I need to do is dab a bit of the ink onto the pens nib and paint away. I saw this cool trick from this Ranger video. Once I was finished coloring in the stamped areas I accented parts of the image using Diamond Stickles, then set it aside to dry.
