Curly Whirly

This challenge is part of a new series of old school challenges called Tube Background Challenge.  For these challenges you only need a tube, some filters and a font.  This awesomely easy tutorial was written by Vix and uses no outside filters!

For the Antique Mosaic step I used 40 for columns/rows.  For the Curlicue layers I used 9, 10, and 11 for columns/rows.

For my text I used FairydustB Font.  The fill was created with Mura's Meister Cloud, and then I applied a Cutout (2, 2, 75, 2) to give it depth.

If you give this challenge a play, I'd love to see your creations!

Oh , what a majestic tube you chose, Karla.  I feel like I'm in the woods with the fairies and elves.  I love the autumnal colors.  I see you're really enjoying the glass filter LOL.  I admit I glass almost all my text heehee.

I'm curious to know how you chose that font.  When I made my tag, I searched through all my fonts for the word "fairy" because the tube is a fairy.  I wanted to see if any of the searched fonts grabbed me.  Most times when I choose a font I look through certain categories of fonts, but I was impatient to make my tag so I did the word search instead.  Luckily for me I found one I liked.

Thanks for giving this challenge a play and for posting your results and settings .  It's a beautiful tag!

Wow, I love both of your tags.  They are gorgeous!
I had a play and here is mine.
The rfont is Fishbowl and I used  Filters Unlimited Paper Textures-Japanese paper to mke it look more like the texture of the tube.
It kinda looks like the curlicues could b waves, LOL.
Thanks for the challenge, timber.   This was fun.

Awww... Judy, what a precious tag!   I'm such a fan of Juri Ueda's art.

I love the name of the font you used LOL.  Sounds like the perfect name to go with the theme of your tube.  And I like how you thought to give your text a texture to match the tube!  I do that sometimes too... when I remember .  I agree with you; the curlicues look like waves.  I think I'll have to choose a similar tube next time I make this tag.

Thanks for having a play with this challenge and sharing your design thought process and tag details!

Do you happen to have a tag with my name by chance?   I'd love one if you do!

I DID find one with your name on it.  LOL  Excuse my many typos.  I try to catch them but, I'm not doing too well.
I still have my eye (laser surgery) coming up on the 17th.  Hopefully that will help.
Here ya go.  I'm glad you kie it.

Thanks so much, Judy!

This is a typo-tolerant space, so you're all good .  I'll keep you in my prayers for your upcoming surgery .

Oh Judy, that is such a gorgeous tag! What a wonderful job with the look of the texture to match, colors and font! 

Timber, your little dollie taggy is so cute! I love the little banner with your name to it too! I almost used a "fairy" type font but then realized DUH they are elves lol I did not go through my font list because I know it would take me forever so I just searched for an "elven font". I was able to find one that I thought went well :)

Heehee... I thought that might have been the case, Karla, I did the same!

Isn't that a precious doll?  She's one of my faves.  I created the name plaque from two of the fishes.  It's nice when you have an element of a doll animation that you can take and use in that way.
