A Joyful Red Robin

For today's Retro Cafe Art  design piece, I've made a bright holiday tag. I love making tags for Christmas, some will go on simply wrapped packages with big tied ribbon bows and others will be made into cards. When I saw this Debrina Pratt collage sheet from Retro Cafe Art I just had to use it. I loved the cheery red robin mixed with the Christmas theme. I will also use it for a  challenge at Art with No boundaries calling for "Red and Green".

To make this tag I painted the tag red them brushed gold paint over it. It looks like wood...don't you think? I fussy cut the robin and surrounded it with a glitter leaf. The "joyful Christmas was put on a piece of chipboard that was painted too. The green, red and yellow epoxy circles came next, to add shine. A red grosgrain ribbon tie completed this colorful tag.

Hope you will have a joyful week.
artfully yours, gerri
