Domino Accordion.......

For this weeks DT piece for 100 Proof Press using the Long Tower Row stamp, which I love and the detail is fabulous.
I found two very large dominoes in my cupboards and decided to use them as book covers.  Each domino was painted with Fresco paint Little Black Dress, allowed to dry and then I applied the Crackle Glaze, allowed to dry and then applied a top coat of Honey Dew.  I love the crackles this paint produces and so easily too.  I then stamped the Long Tower Row onto the front and back cover. On this side I added a pewter ART embellishment.
On this side I added a CREATE pewter embellishment.
The inside of the book covers were decorated with 7 Gypsies Paddington paper and I then added my accordion which was stamped throughout with the Long Tower Row.
From this picture you can see the fabulous detail in the stamp.  I may even use this stamp for a Christmas card, would look great in icy blues for a winter scene. To complete, I added a ribbon to fasten. Pop by the shop HERE to see some more great ARCHITECTURE stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment, much appreciated.  Tracy x x
