If you love to alter game pieces you should visit Leigh's DominoArt, There is a lot of gorgeous inspiration there and there are also challenges.
The challenge running now is all about domino books ( you can still enter this one, see details here),using Rick St. Dennis Easter/Valentine domino kit which is available in Ricks shop for a limited time, and the best part is it is only $ 3.50.
For Those of you who have never tried or need some help there is a tutorial here. Trust me on this, these books are super easy, it's just a bit of coloring,folding and glueing anyone can do this.
Now the greatest part of the news :-), DominoArt blog has its annual celebration in April, and because Rick and Leigh both are Alice fans too. Leigh decided to have a special Alice dominobook challenge which starts March 29th, and Rick made special images for that challenge, but there is more the prizes will be Rick St. Dennis Alice in Wonderland digi's, how awesome it that!!!
But I think you want to see the domino book I made now, I used the Alice in Wonderland domino kit for it, specially made for this challenge by Rick, and it's so very cool, all characters are there, one side is "Wonderland" and the other side is " the Looking Glass" it is only available for a limited time and you can find it here
here is the domino book I made:
Coloring was a bit of a challenge so I sharpened my pencils and started. The book is made the same way as the book in the tutorial, but for this one I wanted a more vintage/old look. The images on the domino's were covered with Crackle Glossy Accents, when the crackle had dried I inked it using walnut stain disstress ink, used a make up sponge to rub it on and be sure to rub it inside the cracks, that way the cracks will be more visable and it makes the crackle look real old.
After the inside of the book was colored and folded I used distress ink to ink all the edges and also inked around all images. The final touch are the rhinestones on both domino's.
