It seems like ages since I last posted anything. I spent last week painting a box, my first project for Carries gifts, only to strip it all off again. Not a happy bunny! I repainted it last night and in between coats I made a little domino book. I have wanted to have a go at one of these for ages
I have seen a few of these around but I was so inspired to have a go when I saw Alison’s (The Crafty Trog) book here. Thanks Alison you are always an inspiration.
I cut a strip of card 4 1/2 cms x 28 cms. Rubbed some D. inks all over it and then randomly stamped. The images bled a bit because the card is naff! lol and I didn’t wait for the base ink to dry but I quite like the effect. I then scored the card every 2 cms.
I glued the stamped strip to another piece of fancy paper and trimmed the corners.
For the dominos. I coloured them with staz-on and stamped the ferns again using staze-on. I used two little pieces of paper to cover one side of each of the dominos and then attached the concertina strip.
A tip that Freddie gave me years ago. If you are drilling onto a shiny surface pop a bit of masking tape over it. It stops the drill bit slipping and is easier to mark where you want the holes.
I was quite pleased with my first attempt. Will definately be making some more of these. They are so much fun.
Stamps used Crafty Individuals – meadow flowers.
