Domino Flower pin

domino pin 1.21.2012
It has been snowing since I got up this morning and so I decided I would sit at my desk and play with some of my art supplies.  I have been staring at a big box of domino's. In the box I found large, medium, small and wooden double cross domino's that I hadn't used in a very long time. You can view some of the my domino pieces that I created in the past on my picture trail site.Domino art
I inked up my domino with Adirondack Butterscotch ink, heat set it with the heat gun, and then stamped an Acey Duecy stamp with permanent black ink. I stamped the portion of the domino I wanted to use, and again I heat set the ink.
I decided to make another burlap/dryer sheet flower as the base for my pin. After making the flower, I glued my rubber stamped domino onto the flower with Tacky Glue.

I then drizzled glue onto the fabric and around the domino, and I sprinkled on Topaz Treasure Beads, small hole less gold beads, and tiny seed beads to add some Pizzazz and sparkle to finish the piece.

Dear Elaine,

What a pleasure to welcome you at my blog earlier today! :)

Here in Munich, we also had snow this morning, but then it melted away. Now there's a storm howling outside -- it almost sounds frightening...

Your domino pin looks just lovely -- thanks so much for sharing your latest project!

Elaine, you are very creative! To use the things you did, and come up with something so lovely is a talent. Your use of dryer sheets is genius, plus I'm sure it smells good. Very pretty!
