Victorian Steampunk Luca

Good morning fellow stampers!

I'm jumping in on the second day of previews for the new Tickled Pink collection called "Lil Victorian Steampunks" illustrated by the talented Christina. There are also some amazing coordinating sentiments designed by Ann, and the entire new release will be released next Saturday, May 7th (Aussie time)... Friday the 6th for those of us here in the States, in the Tickled Pink store. :)

Today we are featuring Victorian Steampunk Luca... something about his dapper attire mixed with the belts and pouches brought to mind the Phineas Fogg character from "Around the World in 80 Days". He was a ton of fun to color up and this was also a great excuse to dig out all of the 'vintage' ephemera embellishments that I just had to have when they were all the rage in scrapping oh, probably nine years ago now! Sure I haven't touched any of these stickers or die cuts in years but considering how quickly they have made putting my Steampunk cards together, I chalk it up to totally justifying my 'hoarding' of paper crafting goodies. LOL! ;)

Now it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink Stamps preview without a prize would it? As always if you would like a chance to win this new Victorian Steampunk Luca stamp, all you have to do is leave a comment over on the Tickled Pink blog... it's as easy as that! And while you are there you will be able to enjoy even more Luca coolness on my fellow Pink Ladies' fabulous cards. :)

Come back tomorrow when I will be traveling back in time with yet another TP cutie!
Smooches!
