Color Me Green Challenge on Altered Challenges!

 I've been wanting to play with altering dominoes and trying my hand with soldering. For my challenge project I decided to combine the two with the Green Challenge going on over at the Challenge Blog.

I began by marking the back of a domino where I wanted to drill holes. I began with my pointy file and drilled a shallow hole as a pilot for my hand drill. 

Next I hand-drilled the 4 holes that I had marked on my domino. Once I had a domino with holes, I wired the bale onto the top of the domino leaving room to solder my metal rose and wings onto it.
Next I added loops across the bottom of the domino to attached dangles of charms from my stash.
I colored the domino with my alcohol markers and added a sticker from one of the vintage sticker sheets from Altered Pages and applied Fast Finish Decoupage over the top. 
A sheer green ribbon finished the necklace. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. Be sure to enter the Challenge by August 30th to enter to win!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
