Domino Wall Art


16 Dominos
Gold ink: Brilliance
Copper ink: Brilliance
Black ink: Stazon
All rubberstamps: Club Scrap
Glue: Crafter’s Pick
Black acrylic paint
Mat board
Heat gun


1. Ink edges and the back (flat) side of 8 Dominoes in gold ink and 8 Dominos in copper ink. You will need to heat set each side as you ink it to set the ink and make it dry.
2. Once ink is dry, arrange your dominos as shown in diagram.
3. Choose your rubberstamps and stamp images and sentiments with black Stazon ink, let dry.
4. Ink top edges of each domino to sort of “frame” the words and images. You can do this either direct-to-pad or using a sponge for a softer look. Let dry.
5. Cut a piece of mat board just under 5in x 5in. Paint the center of the mat board black. Let dry.
6. Apply glue to mat board all around the edges (not in the very center where there will be no domino) and start adhering the dominos to the mat board. I also put a bit of glue on the edges of the dominoes to ensure they would hold together (especially on those few dominos that hang over the edge of the mat board).
7. Glue hanger to back of mat board, let dry.

Finished wall hanging is approximately 7in x 7in.

Good luck and have fun!!
