Victorian Steampunk Lestat

Hello, hello!

Are you ready to travel back in time once again with the "Lil Victorian Steampunks" from Tickled Pink Stamps? These cool characters are illustrated by the talented Christina and we also have a great coordinating sentiment set, designed by Ann, to go along with them. All of the new stamps are being released on Saturday, May 7th (Aussie time)... Friday the 6th for those of us in the States, in the Tickled Pink store. :)

Today Steampunk Lestat is taking a bow in the spotlight we are shining on him. He kinda reminds me of a turn of the century magician and from the looks of him I'd say he definitely has a trick or two hidden up his sleeve. ;)
Once again I have relied on my 'old as the hills' ephemera embellishments to help set the scene for Lestat on this card. They sure aren't my usual look or go-to embellies but I've been really enjoying finally using some of them up!

As always it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink Stamps preview without a prize, so head on over to the Tickled Pink blog and leave a comment on today's post for a chance at winning your very own Victorian Steampunk Lestat rubber stamp! My fellow Pink Ladies also have plenty of Lestat eye candy to check out while you are there that I know will inspire!

Oh! I also want to let you all know that Kellie is having a sale in the TP store starting on May 7th, which is release day! Buy 3 rubber stamps and get a 4th FREE.... how amazing is that?! :)

Alrighty, I'll see ya tomorrow with a Victorian lovely that you won't want to miss!

I love his name - now that was a real vampire! Not these wimpy ones of Twilight fame. I digress - this is such an interesting card - it feels more like a poster than a greeting card. Awesome!
