A Sweet Domino Keychain


What a crazy week this has been! Last Friday, I signed my resignation papers at my job, and drove my loaded down little car all the way across the country from Houston, Tx to Flat Rock, MI. Sometimes in life, drastic (and scary) changes are needed, and that is exactly what I decided I needed! So far, I absolutely love it here, and am really enjoying the change of scenery. The leaves are changing color, which I am SO not used to, and the weather is super cool and crisp. The little town I'm living in is so quaint and quiet. Love it...

Anywho, as soon as I had my crafting table unpacked and setup, I got to work making keychains for the new house keys. I used a regular domino with a tiny eye screw screwed into one end. I used a mixture of   Alcohol Inks in - Wild Plum, Eggplant, and Pitch Black. After inking the domino and allowing it to dry for a few seconds, I used a Tim Holtz stamp and embossed the domino with black embossing powder. I sealed the whole thing with Super Seal from Creative Imaginations. To add a little jingle...I added a few Tim Holtz Idea-ology pieces to the chain...which was also from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line :)
