Where're we goin?

Hello -
The new challenge begins at The Paper Shelter today and the theme is Holidays. I have wanted to colour this image for a while as I think its really pretty so today you see Where're we goin . 
This is the first time I have coloured an image using Prismacolor pencils and I think I am in love with them! My thought process went a little like this.... Holiday... travel... postcards... luggage tags.... kraft...and the only thing that will colour on Kraft is Pencils. So I jumped right to it and just gave them a go. I'm very happy with the result considering I've never used them before. 

I used patterned paper from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss collection which I trimed the edge from a 6x6 piece and used the spare at the bottom. To cover the gap I used some lace and a strip of watercolor wash paper from My Favourite things. I used the same paper in an embossing folder to create the Postcard. I used the same lace to add detail to the tag and glued a co-ordinating resin flower to cover the join. The heart stickers and Enjoy Tag are from the same Simple storied collection. The final little detail I added was to used a Gold pen to colour the corners of the case and the buckles.

There are great prizes at The Paper Shelter challenge
