JustRite Friday Challenge 035: Christmas in September/Holiday Tag

JustRite's weekly challenge is sponsored by Spellbinders, so their new Fanciful Holiday was perfect for my tag. Using Copic's Cool Grays in my air compressor, I created a multihued sky. (Wouldn't this BG be perfect for a Halloween tag using SB's new Halloween dies?!) Did you know JustRite now sells Copic Markers in singles & sets? Click here to go directly to their catalog.
Rudolph is flying across the night sky with a reminder for us to "Believe"! JustRite's 15 pt. Times New Roman font was the perfect size to create his banner. Pretty sure those folks on the snowy ground below believe,
as they've decorated an outdoor Christmas tree -- LOL!
My reindeer & tree were cut from Spellbinders' Premium Craft Foil in gold & green. When coloring the pot brown, I saw that the alcohol marker removed the green. Since I'd accidentally removed some from the tree, I grabbed my rubbing alcohol & paper towel & removed it all. I then airbrushed the whole tree with Copic G07. So a happy little accident, as I now know I can have whatever color/shade of foil I desire! I just LOVE Copics' versatility!!!
My snow is simply torn white glitter paper and my moon a SB circle die cut from it & airbrushed with Copic Y11. The little red star tree topper was from my stash, so I colored clear gems with Copic R27. Adding Amuse tiny twinkle stars in the sky and red, green & gold fibers finished off this tag. The small photo better shows off the sparkly gems.
