Domino Snowmen Ornaments

Hi Dreamers!
I have something a little different today.  My good buddy, Leigh, inspired me to try my hand at altering dominoes.  Check out all the Christmas Domino projects on Leigh's Domino Art blog.  Here are my Snowmen Ornaments.

Materials List:
Stamps: Snow Kisses - My Sentiments Exactly
Set Black Stazon Ink
Copic Marker - Process Blue B05
Metallic Silver Marker - American Crafts
Glossy Accents - Ranger
Silver Wire
14” Glass Seed Bead Strands - Michaels Craft Store
Assorted Beads
Cord Trim - Jo Anns
Fabri-Tac Glue

Stamp the snowman onto the dominoes with the Stazon ink.  When the ink is dry, color around the snowmen with the Blue Copic Marker.  Draw around edge of domino with a Metallic marker.  Apply glue around the side edges of the dominoes.  Wrap the wire and bead strand around one of the dominoes.  Twist the wire to hold the bead strand together.  Wrap the cord around the other domino.  For the first ornament, add more beads to the ends of the wire.   Curl the ends of the wire and trim.  For the second ornament, add large beads to the ends of the cord and tie cord in a knot.  

Some fun challenges for my Snowman:

Alota rubber stamps: ornaments
Christmas at Sweet Stampin: Christmas
Crafts and Me: ornament
For Fun Challenges: Snowman
Going Grey with Scrap Creations: anything but a card

Pretty fun project.  I did have some trouble finding a stamp that look good on the domino.  I am so glad I had this MSE! snowman set!   Now, let me see, what does the schedule say is coming up tomorrow?  Oh, I think you will like this...a very vintagey Holiday card with Paper Artsy.  See you then!  Love ya.
