"Autumn's Pencil" Doublecross Domino Bookmarker - Smeared Ink DT

Happy Sunday!
I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far!  Today I'm sharing my Smeared Ink DT inspiration project I posted over at our Smudgy Antics challenge blog yesterday!

 At the beginning of February I shared my Daily Planner featuring Smeared Ink's Grandmaster chess set digis on the cover and today here's the Doublecross Domino bookmarker I made for my planner!  This time I used the tall and narrow stamp from my Autumn's Pencil rubber stamp set I designed for Smeared Ink.

 Before I started stamping I hand screwed the brass eye screws into both ends of the wooden Doublecross domino (a game that's been discontinued for many years now).  Then stamped the image onto the front and sides with Jet Black StazOn ink and heat set before colouring the design with Sharpie markers.  I'd normally apply a varnish or Judikins Diamond Glaze at this point to protect the domino but I did that after I took the photos, the glare from the glaze makes it tricky to get good pix!  I made the jewelry dangle and included a tiny black domino bead to complete my piece, I just love those beads!  I threaded a length of black sheer ribbon through the top loop and adhered it to the back page of my daily planner and it works and looks great too!  Here's a closer look at the details!

 Don't forget you've got DominoART's first challenge of the year to enter, #10 Hearts plus it's an Any Game Goes and also come and join us at Smudgy Antics for our always Anything Goes challenges too!
