Altered Dominoes

Now I have been a good girl and finished most of my unfinished jobs I am taking part in new challenges! So first off is a Domino Book Swap. I have never altered a domino, let alone made a book from one! First hurdle was no dominoes but two lovely ladies from UKStampers sent me a few each to practice on. They look oriental to me so first I used my alcohol inks for the background. Then I stamped and embossed the fish and the edges with gold. Lastly I covered it with crackle Glossy Accents.

This one I tried something else; still alcohol inks for the BG but then I stamped chinese symbols on it before adding the image of the lady and the coin. This time I edged with a gold/red embossing powder and used UTEE to cover it all.

So after my experiments I think I prefer the glossy accents finish to the UTEE. Now I have to post my domino book to the recipient. Once she has it I will show you what I did.
