I am entering this for a challenge on Arty Girlz Challenge Blog this weeks' challenge is Blue.
I have altered a child's wooden domino.
First I primed it - then I painted on a lovely metallic blue paint, sandpapered it, painted on Gesso, sandpapered that - then painted on a top coat of metallic blue again - with the aim of giving it a distressed look.
When dry I stamped a Paper Artsy image onto it. I embossed the little boys hat with black embossing powder so too part of his cloak - to add definition and texture.
Around the edge of the domino I used textured paste to make a 'frame' then added different embossing colours - including gold, silver, distressed blue and clear embossing.
The sides and the back have had several coats of metallic blue paint too.
I drilled a hole through the top for a silver wire 'hanger loop'
The domino is a lot smaller than this photo! He looks lovely under a light.
