Brilliance galaxy gold pigment ink stamp pad
A Stamp in the Hand tic tac toe wood game board/pieces

10 Papers by Catherine 1-1/2" squares of Ivy purple & gold paper
5 Papers by Catherine 1-1/2" squares of Wrought Iron red & gold paper
5 Papers by Catherine 1-1/2" squares of Ivy ochre & gold paper
5 color copies of child photo cut to 1-1/2" square
5 color copies of mother photo cut to 1-1/2" square
clear acrylic spray (optional)
1. Sand (if needed) any rough edges of the wooden frame or game pieces of the tic tac toe game.
2. Paint the frame with black acrylic paint.
3. Paint sides and approximately 1/8 inch in from the edges of the top and bottom of all 10 game board pieces with your black permanent ink marker. Allow everything to dry.
4. Rubber stamp the raised front of the frame with a gold pigment stamp pad using the alpha block stamp. Allow to dry.
5. Lay your frame upside down and place black dice in each of the four corners of your board. Don't glue dice yet. This allows you to easily measure the correct spacing while gluing down your domino pieces.
6. Glue one domino on each side of the corner dice.
7. Remove the dice and allow glued dominoes to dry.
8. Turn your game board right side up and glue the black dice to the dominoes, creating the legs or base of your art game board (see photo for exact positioning of dice).
9. Adhere purple paper on one side of all the 10 game pieces. Adhere red paper to opposite side of five of the game pieces.
10. Glue color copies of child’s photo on the five remaining game pieces not covered with paper. Cut five mother photos and glue onto the purple side of the five game pieces (opposite the red). Now you should have five child photos and five mother photos on top of your game pieces, and red and purple paper on the back sides.
11. Rubber stamp on the five Ivy ochre and gold papers with the printed circle with face stamp.
12. Cut out the face and glue onto the center of the red covered game pieces.
13. Cut one of the square sections out of the Wrought Iron red and gold paper and glue onto the center of the remaining pieces with Ivy purple and gold paper.
14. Coat sides of game pieces with clear acrylic spray if desired.
