Today as I was riding back from the village after attending numerous Festival of Love parties, I came across a stray traveller on the road. The poor soul was travelling by herself, trying to lug various trunks and cases with no horse or carriage. I reined up beside her and offered my assistance. She assured me she was capable of handling her cumbersome luggage with a spell if I could spare an elixir as she had run out of mana. It so happened I had an extra elixir potion in my satchel and graciously offered it to the lady. She downed the drink and mumbled a few words, casting her spell. I watched in amazement as her trunks and cases suddenly became her torso! She had turned herself into a walking luggage cart!
As soon as I saw the inspiration picture on the Runway Inspired Challenge I knew EXACTLY what stamp I wanted to use! I
started by stamping the image using the Dylusions “Traveling
Travis” set. I then added colouring using a combination of Distress
Markers and paper piecing. This earned me +341 dual technique exp
points. I set that aside and worked on the background. I used the Lawn
Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set to stamp postmarks and the postcard, colouring it
with Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment on the postcard using the My
Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set. Before adding my person on, I
embossed the edge with a border embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.
used the same postcard and postmark stamps on the inside and added a
sentiment using the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set.
I decorated the envelope with more of the postmark stamps to match the ones on the front of the card.
Before he travels away, this card will make stops in the following challenges:

traveller, turned walking stack of trunks, bowed her head, “Thank you
for the elixir. This will make my journey much easier.” She then waddled
away like a penguin, unable to walk normally with her luggage torso. Surprisingly, this wasn’t the strangest
thing I’ve seen all day. Never a dull day in the realm.
