day 23 of the S&S 31 days of Hallowe'en

Day 23 of this fabulous Blog Hop organised by the Smeared and Smudged Forum has come around already 
I'm still hanging in here by the skin of my teeth.
The rules and details of all the fabulous sponsors that have generously donated prizes along the way can be found on Terra's Blog and of course on the Smeared and Smudged forum.
The blog list, should you need it, is there in the right hand bar of my blog as well.

Today is a simple collection of keyrings that I have made using dominoes.
Each one different but using similar techniques.

The holes drilled through first. Then splodges of different alcohol inks. Then using little inchy stamps, the images were stamped on. The edges were coloured and waxed, the backs covered with paper then glossy accents applied to set the images. Some got gems as well.
When thoroughly dry the clasp was added with the aid of D-rings.
A simple little gift for a few friends.

Having been to see the fabulous Valerie already, I'm sure, it's the turn of the wonderful art of Sharon to be seen 
See you tomorrow for day 24
Thank you for visiting me today and for all the kind comments that have been left by you all throughout this month
