Travel the World Over

Hello friends and welcome to this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - ADD A LITTLE SPARKLE.  Sparkle, like sprinkles makes everything better, right? 

Don't forget our kids challenge that runs until July 29th! It's open to kids through age 16, and it's a sparkly challenge too. 

I created a tag this week, inspired by my journey to India last year. 

I started by painting a thin layer of turquoise onto the tag.

Next, I used the Mandala stencil and distress ink to add another layer of blue to the tag.

Now, for the first layer of sparkle - Gilt and the Peacock stencil.

And then I just got playing and stamping and cutting and forgot to take any photos. 
I added some stamping and details with white and gold pens. Some sparkly sequins, words, and a bit of sari ribbon from my stash, and my tag is complete.

travel the world over to find the beautiful, let life surprise you

Time to add a little sparkle to your life this week and join us! I'm looking forward to seeing what you share. This is a great theme to work one with a young one and have them enter the kids challenge.  One person will be chosen at random to receive a $50 shopping voucher from our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp!
