Game Pieces

CC Swaps is running a swap using game pieces; any type can be used. The only game pieces I have are dominoes, so that is what I decided to use.

I covered a domino with 3 different colors of pearl embossing powder and heated it. I then added an image from http://paperflowers1.blogspot.com/ , covered the whole piece with clear embossing powder and embossed it. I had some old jewllery so took one and painted it silver with a bic marker and added it along with a cuttlebug embossed piece.

To be honest I had no idea what to do with the domino at that point and almost considered removing myself from the swap. Then the lightbulb went on-I remembered that I had made an ATC background with plumbers tape, embossed in the Cuttlebug and alcohol inks applied, which coordinated well with the colours in the domino.

I decided to make a notebook for the swap. I took some volcanic ash cardstock and cut it to size for the front and back covers. I embossed Magenta swirl stamps with silver embossing powder, then attached the ATC background and domino. I cut down some lined pages to fit inside and put the whole thing together using my Bind-it-All. It's too bad that shiny or glittery objects don't show well in pictures, as the AI's on the plumbers tape are really pretty.
