Halloween Themed Domino Book

Hi!  Lady B here to show you a little domino book I recently made.  I used Rick St. Dennis MFa's "Common Grave digi" and his "Voodoo" stamp set.  I used Versa Mark embossing ink, Zing embossing powder in black, Copic markers, DecoArt Paper Effects (which is a fine tipped dimensional paint suitable for paper) and DecoArt Liquid Glass.  Click the images below to enlarge.

This is a picture of the book closed.  The ribbon tie keeps the book shut.  I added Zing embossing powder to the sides of the dominoes and heat set for shiny and durable opaque edges.

This is one of the images that shows when the book is closed.

This is the second image that shows when the book is closed.  I used some of the Paper Effects on this one.

This picture shows the open book and the backside of the accordian book.   I added bead spacers for feet.  DecoArt Liquid Glass was added to the top of the dominoes to seal them and give a nice sheen.

Here is the inside view of the book.  I used Rick's "Morte Common Grave" stamp and coloured the images with Copic markers.  I used silicone household glue to adhere the paper and ribbon to the dominoes.

Here is the open book standing.  The domino fronts were coloured with Copic markers.
Thanks for Looking!

RSD August Progressive Challenge Part 2 Team B

Morning all
How is everyone? Enjoying your summer still? I bet the kids can't wait to get back to school now, and they probably aren't the only ones wanting the new term to begin. Some of you will be celebrating the results of exams, some maybe not. Some of your offspring will be off to college or university. Here's wishing everyone gets what they desire.

Have you been watching the news that's been told in our facebook group? Rick has produced yet another book. This time it's colouring books for adults, available from an Amazon website near you. Just do a search for Rick St Dennis in the Amazon site and see what pops up.
Rick is also selling 100 limited edition copies of this first one, "The Day of the Dead", from his Zibbet store.
Each hand signed and numbered copy will also feature a hand coloured section AND a little hand done sketch so your book will be a special one of a kind memento commemorating the first of Rick's colouring books.
Book number two is well under way as well - Rhinestones, Furs and Feathers - this will be a little spicy in a Parisian way according to the man himself.
Get on over to facebook for the news as it breaks and there's a freebie colouring page to be downloaded for your personal enjoyment as well.

Onto this month's Progressive challenge......
Using the specified image "Helen's August Mouse" we'd love to see your projects linked to Mr Linky so that we can come visit your blog. Those of you that took part in the first part in July should have had your free copy by now. For those that missed out - you can still buy her from the store.
Team B is hosting this last part and they have produced some wonderful pieces to inspire. Go to the Sparkle and Glitter Blog to see their makes

Pictured below is my make for the challenge:

I printed the mouse onto Copic X-Press-IT blending card and coloured her with copic markers.  I then scanned her to my pc and added her to my quirky scene.  I used digital elements and papers from Holliewood Studios "Ode to a Muse 2" and "Once Upon a Time" digital scrap kits.
Thanks for Looking!
