Day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween - 'One Spooky Evening' Square Domino Ornament by Leigh S-B

 Happy Day 14 of Halloween!

Today I'm sharing a hanging ornament I made from a Square Domino.  These dominoes are awesome game pieces coz they're double the width of a single standard sized domino.  But unfortunately the manufacturer of the Square doms has discontinued them so I apologize for getting you all excited if this is the first time you're seeing them!!  Booo!  Booo!  Booo to the people who used to make them!


SUPPLIES
Square Domino that you just might be lucky to find some where!
Rubber Stamp by PSX
Ancient Page dye ink pads:  Coal Black
Sharpie markers:  Yellow, Red, Orange, Purple, Brown
Silver Paint Pen
Judikins Diamond Glaze
Black Sharpie
Bat and pumpkin confetti
Black ribbon
Black fiber and cotton
Heat It embossing gun

For this project you're going to need a Square domino straight from the tin but if you can't get your hands on some then try playing with two dominoes glued together!  No surface preparation is needed because you're going to be using my 'Sharpie Domino Queen' Technique for all the colouring!  Stamp the image onto the domino with Coal Black Ancient Page dye ink and heat set.  Use Sharpies to colour in the entire design but use an extra-fine metallic silver paint pen on the moon.  Edge and colour the sides of the domino with a broad point metallic paint pen and seal the surface and the sides with a coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze.  While the glaze is drying cut a length of black fiber and a length of black cotton.  Thread the confetti bats and pumpkins onto the cotton and tie it onto the fiber at about the center mark.  Form a loop on one of the black fiber and tie a knot.  Apply a thin line of Diamond Glaze all around the sides of the domino and wrap the fiber around it.  Secure the other end at the top of the domino at the base of the loop with more glaze and let it dry.  Cut a length of black ribbon and tie a bow around the loop base and this will also help secure the glued end in place.
