Black and Purple week with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here again and this time I am going to show you my second in row jewelry project made for Tando Black and (sosme other color) week.
This is our Black with Purple week and I decided to skip the Halloween colors and to make another piece of gorgeous Tando  jewelry with Ann Butler 's Unity Faux Quilting stamps, some inks and a lot of embossding powders and paints.
Her is a final result!

 This a totally wearable piece of art- I added some  glaze over the back of this piece to make it waterproof and I am on my way to make more of those beauties for the next color weeks.
See you soon again!

Domino's on your tree.

haha is it too early to be thinking about making decorations for your Christmas Tree????  nah...never too early for me :D  I have used the fabulously sturdy Tando Domino's as a base for each of the little hanging plaques.
  Shame that the 'bling' doesn't show up in the photos though, sorry about that.

Tando produce 2 types of domino's - WAVY and STRAIGHT and they come in packs of 10 at a very good price.  I have painted & stamped onto two of them and covered the other 3 with patterned paper.  The little embellishments have been painted & glittered (except the stocking which has some paper on it) and are from our MINI RANGE, which are all suitable for card making as they are thinner.  You get lots in a pack making them great value!  Here are the products I used...

Thank you for calling by :D, take care, Karen xxx

Dominoes - Love Canvas

Hi all!  Caroline here with this weeks theme of 'Dominoes'.

I thought right outside the box here and decorated a canvas with fabric pieces the same size as a domino - 2"x1"!

I cut long strips of canvas two inches wide and then decorated them using Tando Creative's Harlequin mask and ink.

I then sewed each blank line created by the stencil, and cut into one inch lengths to create the separate dominoes.  I stitched each one onto an 8"x8" piece of canvas and added the 'love' sentiment which was stamped and then chain stitched before adding to the canvas.

This whole piece was sewn to a 10"x10" canvas which I had painted.  I added the framed effect by using the Stripes mask with some Viva Decor Terra.



I then decorated the whole piece with some seed beads.  I have to have busy hands whilst watching the TV!

Domino Week - Matching Game

Hi Tando fans! Dana here today sharing a fun set of altered dominoes. My girls have about a week of Summer left before they go back to school and I made them a matching game to help fight their boredom. New games always help keep them occupied for at least an hour or two so this project was a win-win!

I used some of my favorite domino size stamps to dress up my Dominoes. After applying a light coat of gesso to both sides of the dominoes, I stamped the pretty ladies and gorgeous baroque design onto the dominoes with archival ink.

I then colored the images with Gelatos. I finished the edges of the dominoes with a black paint marker and then added a coat of glaze to both sides to seal and protect the images.

You can pick up the dominoes I used for this project from the Tando Creative Retail Shop.

For more information about the stamp sets I used for this project, please visit my blog. Thanks for stopping by today!
