Exotic 'Game Art' Trinket Box - "50 Shades of GREEN" Lost Coast Designs Readers Blog Hop Giveaway! Starts Today!

 "50 Shades of GREEN"

The hop will close at NOON PST on March 30th and the winner announced on March 31st and some Honourable Mention blog badges are up for grabs too!

 I'm sharing 4 projects today, one here and the other over on LeighSBDesigns, to get you in the mood and inspire you to join the fun ;0)
 My mixed game piece trinket box features Lost Coast Designs medium and a portion of the large sized Owl from the Owl set and portions of the large Feathers rubber stamp.

 I used 4 standard sized white Dominoes for the sides, a Chekit game piece for the lid with a dice (or "die" which is grammatically correct for a single "dice") as the lid stopper!

The game pieces were all treated with Lettuce and Meadow Alcohol Inks and the images stamped with black Archival Ink.   Metallic green permanent ink was applied to the edges of all the game pieces and sealed with a coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze, except for the dice which was sealed with a few coats of Krylon Artist's Workable Fixative.

The beads I used for the lid handle and box feet were all coloured with metallic green permanet ink and the box base was cut from black cardstock.  All the box components were assembled with Judikins Diamond Glaze and E6000 adhesive.  Green pearlescent half pearls were added to complete the trinket box.

Thank you for hopping with me today, I hope I've inspired you to get out all your green supplies and join the fun by participating in our blog hop!  The blog hop roll Inlinkz collection is below!  So off you hop and see what fabulous Shades of Green projects await you!

    This hop is going to be so much fun,
are you excited to get stamping?

May the luck of the Leprechauns be with you!
Domino Hugs!
