Dream Time Domino Necklace

This morning when I was down in the basement doing laundry, I started digging around in my craft boxes. I came across a package of the small domino's.  I brought the domino's upstairs and started gathering other items to create an art necklace.
I used one of my Tim Holtz keys, but you could use any old key, or even recycle one of those keys that come thru the mail from car dealers.                                                                                                              
I then took out 2 of my Fresco ink pads that I always color my domino's with, a tube of sepia colored dimensional magic, black ink pad, heat gun, a favorite Stamper's Anonymous rubber stamp and multicolored gold leaf flakes and a ball chain necklace.

I first dabbed on the Fresco inks onto the top and sides of my domino. Set the ink with my heat gun. Then I inked up my rubber stamp and placed my small domino on the section of the stamp that I wanted to use. I chose the clock and writing. Perfect size rectangles for these little domino's. Next, heat set the black ink. I then put a little glue onto the bottom section of the domino that had the writing, and pressed  gold leaf flakes into the glue. When the glue was dry, I covered the top of the domino with a layer of the sepia dimensional magic. When the DM was dry, I glued the domino to the front of my Dreams Key and added the ball chain necklace. I named this necklace Dream Time because the key has Dreams on it and the domino has a clock image. Finished piece is approximately 2 inches long.
