Altered dominos

Yikes! It's been a while since I've posted anything! Sorry about that...The summer has been a little crazy. But I do have a new obsession that I want to share with you: Altered dominos. Yes - dominos. The game that we all had when we were little yet only 1 person I knew actually knew how to play the game. So, I took those game pieces and doctored them up.
My mom, sister and I spent an afternoon making these and had a blast. They are fairly quick to make and super versatile. They can be jewelry, magnets, Christmas ornaments, keychains, scrapbook embellishments, anything really.

Necklace for my Grandma
Necklace for my niece (A is her initial)
Necklace for my other niece
A keychain
Christmas ornament
This one is going to be a necklace once
I add the findings
Some magnets for my mother in law. I got the mini
domino in the dollar section of Target
Another magnet
Another mini magnet
You can use alcohol inks, copics, sharpies, Gold/Silver/Copper leafing pens, StayzOn ink. Almost anything really. The ones below I used alcohol ink, jewelry and scrapbooking embellishments and leafing pens on them. When I had them how I wanted them I sealed it all in with Glossy Accents. Hope you like them!
