TCCC#3 Altered Dominoes - Captured

Here's my second entry to the  fabulous Third Coast Rubber Stamp challenge blog - Third Coast Challenges. The prize is usually a voucher to spend in their online store, and with prices starting as low as 50cents, its well worth stocking up (and you get quite a lot for your money too!) The current challenge is TCCC#3 Altered Dominoes, and here is my second entry...


It's funny, I never really had in mind to create a themed piece but this dragon's eye peering out of the domino at me made my imagination run wild - and made me think of a wizard's amulet, where he'd captured a dragon and trapped it in an micro-world....  Yes, I'm slightly mad.  Anyway, this gave me a bit of theme, and you'll see hanging from the pendant a key, and dragon's egg, and a skull.... I added carnelian chips and swarovski crystals.  It was only after I checked out the packaging properly, that I realised that carnelian represents courage!  I was just looking for something to go with copper and green - LOL...  Unfortunately, my crackle glaze didn't crack properly (only along the top edge) so I've got to work on that part....

The stamp used is "Dragon Eyes" and its reference code is CH-780-H.  You will find it here in their catalogue, and it cost $4.  It's actually a pair of eyes and the bridge of the nose and brow - I have the large version of the stamp and it doesn't actually fit on a domino!  I used other parts of the stamp to just fill in a couple of the blanks around the edges...

Anyway, I hope you like it, and if you've a mind to, head on over and join in!

I meant to add my congratulations on your well deserved win! Also I must kindly ask creeping to tell me how you glazed them? I've tried a few methods, Glossy Accents, several layers of Klear polish etc.
