Domino preparation: Lightly sand a white domino until the sheen is gone. Add Gesso (white) to the top and sides. When dry, apply color with chalks. Colors used were Oranges, yellows in the middle area, dark brown and black for the border. “Mimbreno Dancer” is stamped on the domino with black Brilliance ink. On the sides of the domino stamp the words, “Apache” and “Mimbres” using alphabet stamps were stamped. On the ends, “AND” was stamped. Heat set the words and apply Crystal Lacquer to the top and sides. It takes several hours to lacquer the top and all the sides. A hole can be drilled in the domino before preparing it to be stamped. They can also be sealed with Krylon spray, Future Floor Finish or Diamond Glaze. Art by Lee Ann Atencio.
“Golf Ball Santa with Border” is stamped twice on white glossy card stock using a black Memories pad and both are colored with watercolor markers, coloring one hat red and one hat green. The border of the stamped image is removed with scissors. Diamond Glaze is applied to the golf ball area to give a raised and rounded look to the ball. White Liquid Applique is applied to the trim of the hats and tassels, then heated to puff. A little color is placed on the tassels to match the hats. Glue is applied to the trim on the hat and white flock is applied with tweezers. These two pieces are layered over scrapbook paper, then white and green card stock. Card by Thalia Sledge.
