A Spot of Color with Dominoes and Alcohol Ink
In a nut shell you apply one alcohol ink to the back of an unprepared domino using a felt applicator. Continue adding different color inks until the domino is covered and the desired look is achieved. Due to the thickness of these dominoes I also applied the alcohol inks to the sides. It is messy creating so I did wear rubber gloves for some of the inking.
I also stamped and embossed my dominoes. If you are not embossing I would recommend using a black permanent ink pad. I used my Versa Fine - Onyx Black pad (because I wanted as much fine detail as possible) and clear embossing powder. Since my stamped image on each card is embossed I also wanted the dominoes to be embossed.
To adhere the dominoes to your project you can use glue or double-sided mounting tape. I added background papers that matched the colors of the inks I used on the dominoes to enhance the pop of color on each card.
