"Air" DominoART necklace for Week 2 of the TCCC#3 Altered Dominoes Challenge!

Greetings fellow Dominoians!

Last week I shared my "Earth" DominoART necklace and today I'm excited to show you the "Air" pendant I made for week 2 of the Altered Dominoes challenge over at the Third Coast Creative Challenges blog I coordinate!  Come and join the fun for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Third Coast Rubber Stamps!

The Air Fairy LS-003-T by Third Coast Rubber Stamps is a beauty!

One way to turn a domino into a pendant is to drill a hole through the top section from side to side with a Dremel.  Ink up the stamp with Jet Black StazOn ink and take the domino to the stamp so you've got more control over placement and it also helps prevent smudging the image.  Heat set the ink with a Heat It tool for a few seconds or longer.  Be careful, the domino will get very hot!

I coloured the image using my signature 'Sharpie Domino Queen' technique with Sharpie markers in the following colours: 
Skin:  Almond, Pink Lemonade with a touch of Sky Blue for eyeshadow
Hair: Sky Blue and Rain Shower
Dress:  Blue Ice and Ocean Blue  
Background: Blue and Navy
Metallic accents:  Metallic Silver Promarker

It's also fun to decorate the back of the domino too.  I stamped more of the fairy's dress on this one and coloured the entire surface with a combination of Blue Ice and Ocean Blue.  Then colour the sides of the domino with a combination of Blue and Navy.  Spray the entire domino with a couple of light mistings of Krylon Artist's Workable Fixative then apply Judikins Diamond Glaze for a glass-like finish.  Adhere a tiny Swarovski crystal to the center of her hair piece and a larger crystal to the center of her bodice jewelry while the glaze is still wet or you can glue it on after with a small dab of glaze once the glaze has hardened.

Cut a 16" length of silver tone snake chain and thread three 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads onto it followed by the domino pendant and then another 3 beads.  I used four clear and two indicolite crystal beads on this piece.  Complete the necklace with a clasp and this beauty is ready to wear!

I hope I've inspired you to get out those dominoes and make your own awesome pendants!   Don't forget to come and enter the TCCC#3:  Altered Dominoes challenge over at Third Coast Creative Challenge Blog!!
