Blog Hop - Club Scrap's Crewel & Unusual kit

Crewel & Unusual Blog Hop!!

Today I am working with Club Scrap's Crewel & Unusual kit.  I decided to make some fridge magnets out of dominos.  I found a ginormous bag of dominoes at the 2nd hand store.  These could be a great item to leave around when I travel as "Abandoned Art".  I love to leave Art goodies when I travel to different towns, I include my email and occasionally get a response which is always fun to find out who found my goodies!!

Sharpies (in lots of colors)
Stazon Ink (black)
White paint pen (optional)
Clear protective spray or Glossy accents (optional)
 1.  Get some dominoes.  These ones are white with a flat perfect artist surface on the back of them.
 2.  Use various shades of sharpies and color the domino.  I started by doing each end and then the center color, then I would overlap the colors and blend them together:
 Here is the assortment of different color patterns I did:
 3.  I then used a 'script' image (ClubScrap Homestead kit) and stamped onto the colored backgrounds:
 4.  Rubberstamp main images (ClubScrap Crewel & Unusual kit) as shown:

 5.  Optional step: Add highlights using white paint pen:
 6. If you want, you can protect your art by spraying with clear acrylic protective overcoat or use glossy accents, let dry.

7.  Adhere magnets to back of domino art:
