I used 2 standard Double 6, brand new straight out of the tin, dominoes for this project and coloured them using my signature Sharpie Domino Queen technique!  Check out all my Sharpie Tutorials on my Blog and also on my website, Velvet Paw Creations, for more info on how to do my technique.  I'm still in the middle of re-designing my entire website so some links aren't ready yet but you'll find some of those tutorials on my blog too!

Stamp just the Moon portion of the Free Parking rubber stamp onto both dominoes with Ancient Page Coal Black dye ink.  Then stamp the Cat on one domino and the dog on the other and heat set the ink with an embossing tool, I'm a huge fan of the Heat It embossing tool.

Colour both dominoes with Sharpie markers, most of them are from the newest Limited Edition set called 80's Glam.  I used Orange, Leg Warmer Orange, Banana Clip Yellow, Jellie Pink and Argyle Green on the cat and Stingray and Valley Girl Violet on the sky and touched up some of the stamped image with a Black sharpie.

 I used Orange, Leg Warmer Orange and Slate Grey on the sky.  Stingray, Valley Girl Violet and Argyle Green on the Witch Hat.  Brown, Coconut and Jellie Pink on the dog.  I coloured the sides of the both dominoes with a Black Sharpie oil-based paint pen and added silver metallic touches to both with an extra-fine point paint pen.  I then sealed both dominoes with a coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze.  I embellished the dominoes with a decorative brad at this point so that they would adhere to the dominoes as the glaze dried.  I used the Fleur De Lis on the dog and the Flourish on the cat.  Both are brads and I just cut off the brad arms.

Thanks for joining us for Day 1 of 31 Days of Halloween!
Stop by tomorrow to see what Pilar F has cooked up in her cauldron for you ;0)



  1. These are just gorgeous! I really love them. Using the ATC as a base is a great idea. I can see doing something like this on a tag as a way to give someone a decorative domino pin. TFS


  2. Love your kitty and dog ATC cards layout and colours used.
