Face Value – Domino Brooches

Hi everyone

Oh, it’s warm!!!!! I was crafting yesterday and the paint was drying on my brush!

Today I would like to share with you two domino brooches which I have made for the Crafty Individuals Face Value Challenge. For full details of the challenge and to join in the fun please click on the link above.  Lots of time still left to join in.

In real life, the size of these is just under 2.5 cm x 5 cm.

Florence Langley CI July Face Value Challenge 018ATWM3For my next brooch I used a retired stamp but it was one of my favorites so I wanted to include it.

Florence Langley CI July Face Value Challenge 027AWM3I made both of these in the same way.
To make them
Stamp the image onto the domino using Staz-On.
Color the image using felt pens.
Apply one to two coats of spray fixative.
Apply one to two coats of Mod Podge.
Edge the dominos with gold pen to finish.

Crafty Individuals Stamps Used:  First Brooch.  CI 394  “No Guarantee Without The Stamp”  I love this stamp.  She is so pretty.

That’s all from me today but I will be back soon with more projects for the challenge. I hope you can join in the fun.

Take care, Happy Stamping Florence x

    Fabulous PF and so tiny I wouldn’t be able to see the domino am so blind let alone colour in and to perfection. You must have one steady hand to edge it so beautifully in gold, the stamps are divine btw.

    So beautiful!
    Florence, when I use Mod Podge as a sealer or top coat I get a stickiness after it has dried, how do you avoid that? So far I haven’t discovered the perfect top coat which is a nuisance in my life lol.

      Hi Lynne, I haven’t had that problem with Mod Podge. I normally put two thin coats on a project. Some times there is stick if the coat is two thick and has not dried properly (in my humble opinion). You could spray the sticky surface with a spray fixative. That will take any stick away. I have used this on gel medium and it works fine for that purpose. The only problem is that if you have used a sealing medium which gives a gloss finish the spray fixative may dull the surface.
