Hello my friends...I have been away at the "cottage" but I just wanted to show you what I have been up to since I returned home.
I am making domino necklaces for my mom and sisters. They turned out toooo cute!
(Ignore all the smiley faces, it is something we sisters started after our brother passed away..he loved them, so we carry on).

Here's what you need to do:

Take a domino and pat it with a felt pad that has been dotted with Copic refill ink or you can use TH alcohol inkers. Let dry (about 3 minutes). Stamp your image on tissue paper with Stazon or Versafine ink.
Coat the dry domino with Mod Podge and while it is still tacky, apply your stamped tissue paper. Be careful...it is tissue paper after all, pat out any air bubbles, trim the tissue paper so it just wraps over the edge of the domino.
Now coat the top and sides of domino with Mod Podge again. Let dry! I know you want to touch it, but don't...it will leave finger prints.
After the domino is dry, apply really good double sided tape to the sides at the top edge. Add a barrel bead or a jewelry bail to the top center. Now roll all sides in Martha Stewart glass beads. This is where I found out that not all glass beads are equal. Trust me...go for the Martha Stewart beads. Add embellishments such as faux pearls.
Now lay the domino flat and start "icing" the stamped area with Glossy Accents. Put just a touch of the Glossy Accents around the barrel bead also...you want that part of the necklace to be strong.
Let dry!  Let dry!  Let dry!
(I know you want to test it, but remember what I said about the fingerprints...walk away, go do laundry, the dishes, something). Do not test it for 12 hours.
Add cord or pretty ribbon and you have a beautiful necklace to keep or give as a gift.
Have fun!
