DominoART Challenge #4: Week 4 of Any Game Goes!

Welcome to Week 4 of
 DominoART Challenge #4 - Any Game Goes
Any Game and Any Theme!
Sponsored by Blockheads Paper Arts!

For Challenge #4 you have complete freedom to pull out all the stops and do whatever you want!  Alter any game and use whatever imagery you want.  You MUST use a real game piece of some kind in your creations for example:  jigsaw puzzles, dominoes, dice, playing cards, checkers, chess pieces, Monopoly money, Bingo cards, etc!  If its a game then you can alter it!

Oops, I made a mistake with the end date for this challenge...it will close June 19 instead of the 26th!

 Blockheads Paper Arts is giving you a choice of any of their QUARTER Sheet Rubber Stamps sets!  A fabulous prize indeed!

I don't have a new project to share with you for this last week of challenge #4 because my precious kitty, Cassi, passed away on Saturday June 8 :0( She was my baby and I'm heart broken and miss her with every fiber of my being :0( So I'm sharing one of my past domino creations instead.

This is my Ancient Stone technique for dominoes! 
  I developed this faux finish for dominoes back in 2003 on my DominoART Yahoo Group while I was experimenting with ways to create a faux Scrimshaw technique for dominoes.  It's probably fair to say it's a semi-faux technique coz it does involve clay ;0)  It looks like it could be a hard one but it actually isn't and the worst part is waiting for it to dry so you might want to make a lot in one sitting for semi-instant gratification!  For more info you can see my original post on my Leigh S-B Designs blog!
