 Now for my Day 18 domino creation!
Christmas Robin Tree Orament

I used a white standard domino to create this hanging tree ornament. The wonderful little Robin image is an exclusive stamp by Blockheads Paper Arts!

The image was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink and heat set before colouring with various Sharpie markers using my signature Sharpie Domino Queen technique.  I edged and coloured the sides of the domino with the new gold Sharpie marker.  I embellished the domino with metallic silver snowflake rub-ons and spray sealed the entire piece with first Krylon Artist's Workable Fixative and then matte Krylon sealer.  I wrapped the sides of the domino with 1/4 inch red liner double sided tape and adhered a length of gold cord to the top edge before wrapping the entire domino with red and gold braided trim from Michaels.  I finished off by securing the elegant gold ornament hanger to the top of the domino by tying the gold cord into a bow.

Here's some more views of my ornament!

Come back tomorrow to see another wonderful creation by a DominoART Merry Player ;0)
