Halloween Altered Domino Book

I decided to make another of these little 'books' so I could use a lovely image I found here of a gothic lady caught in a spider's web - very haunting indeed!

I highlighted the web with some Ranger's Stickles (unfortunately some found their way across the lady's eyes - oh well, all adds to the mystique I suppose!)

The inside page of the 'book' is handmade paper and because it is so thin, the rubber (polymer) stamped image shows through the back of it.

I bought the stamps last weekend at Ally Pally and they seemed just right for this theme - the back of each domino has a gothic door on and the centre panel the large spider's web - no sign of the spider though thank goodness!  The stamps are from Lavinia who I hadn't heard of before now, but I think they're lovely and I wish I'd bought more!

I finished the book off with some black ribbon and crystally bits and coated with some Krylon Crystal Clear.

Good job! A very nice dom book the colours...goes very well with the image. The gothic gate stamps are perfect....I was after something like this, and this size and ended getting one much bigger so can't use them on thanks for linking to Lavinia that's very useful info!

Sherry, I found your blog via your Flickr photos... am delighted to have done so! Love this domino book and it will be great inspiration for some swap projects I'm working on.
