Domino amulet

Craft packages ordered =0, craft packages received =0

OK, I’ll be honest, I’m spinning this holiday thing out now! I know myself too well and thought that I’d schedule a post for Saturday even though I should be home by then. This is a little altered domino amulet/charm that would make a lovely alternative to a card and you could choose the words and image so they are appropriate for the recipient:

I’ve chosen a lovely image from the Gecko Galz pre-Raphalite jewels set which are new out this month. The image hasn’t photographed very well and is much nicer in reality.

I simply adhered the image to a domino using Modpodge and then applied a thin coat of crackle glaze over top. Originally I used a thicker coat of glossy accents but this didn’t let the beauty of the image shine through so I started again!

I decorated the front of the domino with a chit chat sticker, some pearls and a scrap of crochet lace. Around the head I used little blue seed beads and some mica flakes. The wings, gold Dresden scraps, were stuck under the image before the glaze was applied.

I added additional Chit-Chat stickers around the sides of the domino.

I attached some gold wire, with a blue bead added, to make a hanger. Some wisps of gold thread and some gold stars were the finishing touches.

I thought I might also add a little magnetic strip to the back too.

  1. I hope that you are home safe and sound Mrs B. As much as I love your altered domino pieces, I had to smirk at your cheeky additional scheduled post.

    Enjoy your additional holiday day.
