Spring Dominoes

Earlier this week, I'm ashamed to report, I got myself disqualified from one of my favourite challenge blogs by making two rookie mistakes:
1) I didn't read the theme carefully enough
2) I got carried away and forgot the 'max 5 challenges' rule .

I like the Artful Times challenge - they often have more unusual themes and they have a small, friendly DT . So I've gone back to the drawing board and had another shot.

These are my favourite two of the 14 dominoes I stamped (not joking!).

I used Promarker pens for the coloured backgrounds and Staz-on for the stamping. The daffodil stamp is an unknown UM and the word 'growth ' is from 7 Gypsies Numero set.  The birds nest is from a clear set (lost packet again) and the script is Indigo Blu. I ran a Krylon silver pen around the edge.

As well as Artful Times  I'd like to enter:

Oh Marina, hope we did not upset you by pointing out the rules.
Love your dominoes but where are the other twelve. We would love to see them so please feel free to upload and enter them as extras.
Does this take you back in time to the old days when we did them on a yahoo group?
Hugs, Neet xx

These are lovely, I know even though I try to read the rules I sometimes mess up too so don't feel bad. ~Diane
