Altered dominoes

I have been having a go at altering dominoes in a 3D way. Before I had only put them on to ATCs. The top one is in the form of a concertina book, titled Women. Most of them are Da Vinci women, and are stamped in purple/blues to tone with the backing paper. The back is done with alcohol inks, and the front stamped with Stazon





The two boxes have domino bases, and tops. They have card sides, which I have painted with acrylic paint, and added metal tape, accent beads, beads and lace Both tops have shrink plastic oblongs, also painted with metal acrylic paints, and heated. The silver one has a bead handle. I wish I had put one on the bronze one now. All this because the craft drill I bought didn't work. I had to find different ways to attach things. Good ol' UHU














The bronze one also has some copper waste on, kindly given to me by Cindy. This box looks much better than my picture shows. The colours are very rich, and shiny.
