  1. I love that Kim made her own StoneHenge (misspelled) with these lovely little dominoes!! The tragic card and banners and gargoyles are just perfect!! Love it and want it!!lol

  2. Fab use of the tea bags. Mini D's are perfect fit for this Alter. Love the images and what is that material all around the bottom?? Wonderful embellies and killer details.

    1. Sorry, I forgot to add that to the recipe. I made a mix up of UTEE, tea dye distress embossing powder, distress glitter and glossy accents. Mixed it up & applied along the base. I found the technique from Tim Holtz 12 Tags 2014, July.

  3. Wonderful altered domino project....love everything about it!
