Anyone for Dominos

 Hello, I've had some playtime this week, and even managed to finish off this little Domino Book, which was started over Christmas, progressed a bit further for PaperArtsy's challenge of Miniature Art, but didn't manage to get it finished in time - but 'eventually'
My real dominos were too small for the CI images, so I used mount board cut to fit and embossed this with UTEE,  Black EP and then various MoonGlow Embossing powders, before stamping into it while it was still hot. The colours have a gorgeous pearl glow that doesn't show too well in the photo.
The pages of my little book were all distressed with Frayed Burlap and Tattered Rose DIs before embossing all edges with Gold EP. The words, stamped in FB, also had the edges embossed with the Gold EP.

On the back, I stamped and distressed each 'page' and again embossed the edges with Gold, before attaching to the covers.
I am entering this at:
