I've got a story to tell ....

Once upon a time ...........................

there was a gorgeous Tiddly Inks Steampunk lady called Precious.  Precious loved to wear beautiful clothes and fancy hats but most of all she loved to read, write and travel.

So one cool spring morning Precious dressed in her prettiest travel clothes and booked a ticket on a cruise around the world.  She thought this cruise would be the perfect way to experience new things and write about them in her journals.  So she packed one suitcase with her pretty clothes, the biggest case with her well read books, the third with her shoes and lastly a small pink box with her favourite hat.

Precious enjoyed her travels and filled many journals with her experiences.  THE END

Aaahhh wasn't that a lovely story :)

I have used the gorgeous Precious from Tiddly Inks as the star of my story.  The suitcases and the book background are also from Tiddly Inks ... they were/are available as FREEBIES!

I have kept the base card simple by just running a pink ink pad around the outside.  I have coloured all the other images with my copics :-
E000, 00, 02 - Skin
E31, 35, 37 - Hair
E50, 51, 53 - Cream areas
R81, 83, 85, - pink areas
C3, 5, 7 - black areas
E11, 13, 15 - for bottom suitcase (also used Y17 on the suitcases latches and trims.
Of course there is also some spica pen floating about the place ..... wouldn't be a fairytale without some glitter :)

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
Tiddly Inks - Reading Fun
Digi Doodle Shop - #74 Fantasy/Fairytale
Paper Shelter - #29 Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by :)  You probably won't hear much from me for the next week as our internet is so slow (I've used up our limit) that it has taken nearly all day to upload these photos and open the web pages for the challenges :(

Bye for now :)
