Week 3 of D'ART Challenge #11 + "50 Shades of GREEN" Blog Hop!

Happy Friday the 13th Dominoians!
WOW, I can't believe we're now entering the 3rd week of

DominoART Challenge #11
Harlequin Diamonds
and is 
Any Game Goes!

I challenge you to incorporate the Harlequin Diamond pattern into any altered game piece(s) of your choice...that means dominoes, playing cards, jigsaw pieces, etc, all are fair game!

I'm back today to inspire you to join in DominoART's current challenge (link up HERE) as well as to encourage to you to participate in the Lost Coast Designs "50 Shades of GREEN" Reader's progressive blog hop that kicked off with a bang on Wednesday March 11th!  The blog hop roll is below my green and harlequin themed project today so get hopping and then make sure to read all the deets on how to participate over at Lost Coaster's Review!  Combine both themes in your altered game art and play in both events, how fun is that!!! ;0)

Domino ATC

I used Lost Coast Designs "Manga Goth With Socks"
and the music stamp from ATC Misc 7 Set.

The domino I used is slightly thinner than a standard one and therefore not as heavy and this one was from my The Simpsons stash so had pix of the characters instead of pips.  the Manga girl was stamped with Jet Black StazOn and coloured with a combination of Sharpies, Alchohol Pens and metallic green details in shades of green.  The shoulder detailing on her dress look like octopus tentacles and her necklace is a sand dollar (which I covered with a tiny green pearlescent pearl) so I was inspired to create the sentiment with my vintage Dymo label maker on green tape and added the fish bead too.

The ATC is actually a scrap from my making my 3 ATCs I shared in the blog hop on Wednesday which you'll see when you start hopping or click here!  The background is a mish-mash of inks and I grunged it up even more by stenciling the harlequin diamond pattern in 2 sizes with Forest Moss Distress Ink.  I then stamped the LCD music ATC background in black Archival Ink and I used the same stencil to draw in the diamond pattern on the domino too.  I coloured the sides of the domino black and added the harlequin diamond washi tape (Recollections) to the sides and cut a strip in half to add some to the front too.  The domino is sealed with Judikins Diamond Glaze and adhered to the ATC with E6000.  The ATC edges were distressed and stained with a metallic green permanent marker.

This is the "50 Shades of GREEN" blog hop roll!

Have a great weekend!
