Little Wooden Boat On The Sea – Domino Decoration/Gift Tag

There’s been a lot of experimenting with domino tags going on at The Towers this past week or so. This project uses a children’s picture domino as the base which measures 7cms x 3.5cms.
Domino Crafts Little Boat Tag with beads and shellI created background using small, blue paper scraps, tearing the bits on the sea to expose the core to look like waves, with dusting of translucent micro glitter added. The sun was made using a small circle punch.  The wooden boat I have had forever, bought in bulk and used in so many projects. I have used a black, fine liner pen round the edges knowing it would bleed slightly when covered by a  layer of Aleene’s pendant gel. Aleene’s Pendant Gel is best left for at least 24 hours to ensure it’s properly set.

I screwed a tiny silver eye hook in the top and bottom of the “domino”. In the top one I fastened blue jewellery wire with a matching blue bead to make the hanger and on the bottom added a seashell charm, a pearl and faceted blue bead.
