Domino Art

Dec 8, 2011

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.

It’s nice to see you all “Lik­ing” the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion by Lisa M. Pace Face­book Page. When you “Like” the page you auto­mat­i­cal­ly get updat­ed when I post or add a new pho­to. This makes it easy to stay up to date on all the hap­pen­ings of my new stamp line, get inspired with inspi­ra­tion from the Design Team and see what oth­ers are cre­at­ing with their Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion stamp sets. Each month, I’ll always have some sort of give­away or RAK so come help get this snow­ball of fun rolling.
