Madonna and Child


The current challenge at One Powerful Hour is to use altered dominoes, and over at TGIF, it's "games."Well, I LOVE dominoes...not to play the traditional game, but for artsy play. For this card, I printed my favourite Madonna and Child (Bernardino Luini's altered image on tissue paper, then cut it into three equal pieces and affixed them over three dominoes, and clear embossed each. I used a little UTEE, some old MM letter rub-ons, then added a tassel and a silk ribbon rose.

I have a framed print of this beautiful image in my "Happy Room," where I'm
lucky to enjoy hours of creating and art play every day.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

Deborah this is wonderful. Truly, truly lovely!

I don't think that I have ever seen something as beautiful as this card. The image is breath taking and how you have altered it makes it even more stunning!

Thanks for taking the challenge...and I hope you don't mind if I steal your layout...and give alterind dominos another go.
