My First Domino Book

I decided to play along with challenge #1 at Domino ART.  
The challenge was to make a domino book using Freebies from Rick St. Dennis MFA that were drawn specifically for a domino book.  He is also the sponsor of Domino Art's first challenge.  The time frame for the freebies has passed, but you can still purchase the images here.

Supplies:

2 white standard dominoes
Copic Markers
Random ribbon from my stash

Following Monique's tutorial, I printed and cut my image sheets to size and colored the cute little images with copic markers.  I sponged shaded lilac distress ink in the blank areas of my paper and then scored my paper to make the accordion folds.  Next I adhered my two colored image sheets together so I had images on both the front and the back.  I added little "V" shaped cuts at the top and bottom of each fold line and outlined the edges with the silver sharpie marker. (I forgot to mention I colored the blank side of my dominoes with alcohol inks) I attached the ribbon and my paper to the dominoes using glossy accents and when dry I coated the tops with clear UTEE to give a hard, high shine, protective coating.  To add a little more zing, I edged the dominoes with Zing embossing powder in silver.

Here are the pics.  I really need to make a photo light box.









I am entering this challenge just for fun as I am on Rick's EDT and would rather non-EDT members win the prizes.

Cheers!
