Altered childrens Dominoes


I found a box of wooden children dominoes in a charity shop, well you know how it is I thought they were just right to alter, well I had them quite some time and done nothing at all with them so decided to have a little play.
The picture on the right shows the front of the dominoes before altering









The backs of the dominoes before altering







                                                                             I painted the dominoes with acrylic paints ((yellow ochre)I then stamped script in black archival ink over the top of paint both back and front. I then added embellishments. I have yet to add the ribbons I will use them to hang from my craft bag but they could be necklaces, brooches, key rings, bag bling, mobiles and many more things      
I also had a go altering some dressmakers pins I have altered and used these before, they are fab additions to cards and scrapbook layouts
