Altered dominoes - part 2

Good morning everyone.
As I promised yesterday, here are the rest of the dominoes that I created in my "Creative Frenzy" Inspired by the Craft Barn ! Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I appreciate each and everyone of them.

The first set to show you today is this little travel inspired set of four.....


So the basic ingredients are Crafty Individuals images that have this lovely Venice feel of "artistic decay" and romance......
Again, I coloured the edges with Krylon in silver and rock candy distress crackle over which I coloured in walnut stain to highlight the crackle.
Don't you just love the dinky key!?  I could not believe it the other day when I came across these just lying on the road (3 of them) So someone has a padlock with no keys but I have these adorable 1,5cm keys!!!!!!

Then I made this little pair.....

These were done a bit differently. After the krylon in silver and a touch of Alcohol ink to colour I covered the domino in sepia glossy accents and sprinkled some ultra fine glitter in while wet. A little key to finish.......
Have a great day and be blessed.........

All the dominoes are fantastic Neil. Such an abundance of creative flair. Love the soft vintage feel of them. Px

Mmm I saw that over at the Craft Barn, Neil! I was simply amazed at the actually so beautiful and thought what fun it would be but none of the equipment let alone the time to play. I love your blue ones below as well as the sepia ones above very lovely, different surfaces are so much fun, thanks for sharing,

They are gorgeous. I've been in a second-hand shop and saw some dominoes, but decided to not buy them! I should have...
