Creepmas is the second best holiday of the year (after Hallowe'en) and the team has made some great projects for your viewing pleasure as we take part in this awesome hop organised by The Smeared and Smudged community. Today is Smeared Ink day and in honour of that, I (Lady B) have used stamps from the "Dark Holidaze" rubber set and the "Voodoo" rubber set designed by Rick St Dennis and sold exclusively by Smeared Ink. Great News! You can now buy Rick's rubber sets as digi sets and digi singles in the Smeared Ink shop!
I decided to make Domino Ornaments for my Creepmas Tree. This was my first attempt at colouring Dominoes and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. By the time I got the hang of it, I ran out of Dominoes. I'm definitely going to play with this medium more in the future! I just need to get some fine tipped sharpies first :). Feel free to click on the pics below to enlarge them.
My dominoes were stamped with Jet Black Staz-On ink. I inked the stamp and had it face up on my craft table then I carefully pressed the domino on the portion of the stamp I wanted to use. I heat set the ink then sealed the dominoes with DecoArt Media Matte Medium. Next I coloured the dominoes with my Copic Markers. I found that if you seal each layer, you can continue to add colour without swiping off the first layer of colour applied. I also used some DecoArt Paper Effects. I LOVE this stuff! It comes with an optional super fine tip for the tiniest dots and thinnest dimensional paint lines ever! I added ribbon on the sides of my dominoes and sealed the dominoes with Diamond Glaze. I took the pics before adding the glaze so the shine wouldn't interfere with the photos.
I will be entering my ornaments into the Smudgy Antics ATG challenge.
