I have been wanting to try a large tag for sometime and after looking at the magnolia down under challenge from a few weeks ago on swirls, had an idea of using swirls to create a snow globe. I brought a pad of papermania in my favourite colour - lilac, so decided to down a summery globe instead (test run for Christmas cards).
I cut a large tag shape from a piece of lilac card. I then matted two pieces of the patterned paper on to a sheet of green card and then created an aperture. I cut a circle of acetate that is larger than the aperture in the card. I added two pieces of ribbon to both sides and then on one side, I sewn some beads, that I took from a piece of beaded trim. I then stuck the acetate behind the aperture.
For the top of the tag, I cut another piece of green card and matted this onto the lilac card.
Now for the swirls. I decided to create a template to use. I drew a swirl on to a piece of card and then picked out the design. I layered this over my tag, where I wanted swirls and then used a pencil to transfer the design. I then used my copic fine maker to connect the dots together to form the swirls. I then used stickles glitz them up. I also added stickles around the edge of the aperture.
I created all the flowers used on the tag, from punches.
I distressed the edges of the large flowers and used chalk to add some extra colour. I added a jewel to the centre of the smaller flowers. The leaves are also from punches.
I have entered this in the following challenges:
