Day 24: Llorona - Day of the Dead Domino Coaster by Leigh S-B!

Welcome to Day 24 of DominoART's 
annual 31 Days of Halloween Scarefest 
and blog hop presented by Smeared Ink!

why is there a skunk in my photo you ask...well, her name is Mouette, she's French you see and you know how the folk down in New Orleans enjoy celebrating the dead!
 My Wicked Players and I are still going strong in DominoART's 5th 31 DOH scarefest and this spooktacular blog hop brought to us by Smeared Ink!  If you've been hopping with us from the beginning then you arrived here via Sue and your next stop is Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  It's not too late to join the fun if you just stopped by for the first time today, all the hop info can be found on Terra's blog.  There's lots of sponsor prizes to be won each and every day!  The Smeared Ink Blog Hop roll is over there in my right hand side bar if you'd like to join the fun! 

It's me again, Leigh S-B, and I'm back today to share another one of my altered domino coasters.  This time I've got a very colourful Day of the Dead coaster featuring one of Smeared Ink's Llorona rubber stamps and the border stamp from the Autumn's Pencil Zentangle inspired rubber stamp set I designed for Smeared Ink. 

Autumn's Pencil is unavailable from SI at the moment but if you're interested in adding my stamp set to your collection then please contact me ;0)

Supplies used
Smeared Ink - Llorona rubber stamp
Leigh S-B Designs (SI) - Autumn's Pencil
8 standard size white dominoes
Sharpie markers
StazOn Jet Black ink
Judikins Diamond Glaze
Cork Coaster - Michaels
E6000 adhesive

The dominoes were stamped with StazOn ink and coloured with Sharpie markers in my signature Sharpie Domino Queen style.  The dominoes are adhered together with Judikins Diamond Glaze and then adhered to the cork coaster with E6000 adhesive.  The sides of the dominoes are coloured with black Sharpie.  The entire coaster is sealed with Judikins Diamond Glaze for a glass-like finish (done after the photos were taken to avoid the glare in my pix).

  1. Love the stained glass look to it.

  2. Love the design and vibrant colours!

  3. OMG!!! I have to try and make one of these. She looks so gorgeous with your fab zentangled border and your coloring is amazing! LOve, love, LOVE! xxD

  4. Gorgeous coaster, but you know I'm really just here for your dolls.
    Mouette is wonderful!!! I may have to look into that layaway thing...

    1. LOL, you're under their spell now Glow! Resistance is futile! My friend's Mouette is quite a character, she's a hat stealer and runs off with Evie's hats and orders more on the web if you don't keep an eye on her at all times ;0) So beware, Mouettes are trouble ;0) bwahahahahha!

  5. Another fabulous coaster! Love how you've combined the Llorona stamp with the Autumn's Pencil border--I would never have thought to put those two together, but they look great.

  6. OOH, another fantastic piece, I would love to see how you create these, absolutely gorgeous, full colors and love that border!

  7. Beautiful.
    Love the bright colors.
    I have to find some dominoes.
