I'm also over the moon right now and I just have to share heehee!  I received my complimentary issue of Just Steampunk Vol 2 yesterday and all 6 of my creations I submitted have been published, WOOHOOOOOOO!
You can find 2 of my DominoART necklaces on page 27 featuring Third Coast stamps, plus my two Fine Art self portraits featuring Blockheads Paper Arts stamps on page 99 and two cards featuring Third Coast stamps on page 99 too!  I'm tickled pink right now, LOL ;0)

Now for my Day 31 creation!

Perfectly fitting for today's finale is my 'Clockwork Queen of Halloween' altered Doublecross domino necklace!

The image is called Halloween Queen VB-299-P by Third Coast Rubber Stamps.

I used a wooden Doublecross domino for this pendant and drilled a hole in the top edge so I could screw in a tiny brass eye-screw.  Sorry guys, this game has been discontinued for many years now but keep your eyes peeled at garage sales coz you just never know!  The image was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink and coloured with a combination of Sharpie markers and Adirondack Alcohol pens:  Black, Burgundy and Pink Lemonade Sharpies, Rust, Slate, Butterscotch and Stream Alcohol pens.  Metallic copper, silver and gold details were added to the image with Letraset markers.

The domino was edged with a metallic copper paint pen and all 4 sides of the domino were pounced onto a Brilliance Mineral tri-colour ink pad.  I deliberately allowed the imperfections in the wood game piece to show through, which you can see in the photo below.  The top of the dagger looked like a heart so I added a jeweled heart sticker and then sealed the entire piece with Judikins Diamond Glaze.  She'd totally work for an Alice in Wonderland themed project don't you think!  While the glaze was still wet I adhered the large silver clockwork key (Bead Landing, Found Objects Charms) to the bottom of the domino.

I completed the project with various charms (Bead Landing, Found Objects) added to chain which I attached to the clockwork key holes.  I screwed in the tiny eye screw and threaded a chain through it and also embellished the top with a brass cog gear from SkyBluePink.  The cog gear on the charm chains is also from SkyBluePink too.

Stay tuned for my post tomorrow announcing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of  
31 Days of Halloween 2012
and don't forget you can now sign up for DominoART's 24 Days of Christmas Festival which starts Dec 1!

Happy Trick or Treating!  Beware all that goes bump in the night ;0)

Domino Hugs!
