Mabel Mini Domino Book

You know i just can't put down the fab range of Mabel stamps from The Artistic Stamper {more coming in nov}
But seeing as i'm really trying to get back into the altered side of my life i thought i 'd again combine the 2 so i altered a couple of dominoes and made them into an ickle book!

I actually coloured the dominoes and the images with my copics, i wasn't sure if it would stay put on the dominoes surface but i let it dry well and it looks great, i was thinking about a coating of some sort but am scared of ruining it.. any suggestions of a good spray varnish anyone?? dont want something that i have to brush on in case it smears the images.

{sorry for the poor quality pics, t'was bad lighting when i took them}

♥ HUGZ ♥

This is sooo beautiful Minxy ... great job!

Love the little book. A water based acrylic glaze should work without interfering with the alcohol based sharpies !

this is so sweet - I love the way you have stamped around the corners to make their hands meet when it is closed. I have stamped a few dominoes but only on the fronts so must try to do the sides too.
