Thursday Thoughts

I'm here today to share a tag I made for the challenge over at Create a Smile. 
Here's my tag, it's a double held together with twine and funky fibres:

I stamped the wall and bear and then masked them off before adding the sunrays through the stencil. I rotated the stencil and added some fainter rays by not pressing so hard on the ink blenders. I coloured some of the bricks in matching colours and added a trio of enamel dots round the sentiment.

Stamps: Create a Smile, Poppin Over
Inks: SU, soft suede; Rnger distress, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, picked raspberry
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched traditional tags
Pens: Copic
Embellishments: Sparklets enamel dots; twine & fibres from my stash 

I'm also popping this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Tag It!

So pleased to have had your company today, thanks for your time. And keep crafting!
