Victorian Steampunk Lylah

Good morning friends!

Once again we are stepping into that time machine and traveling into the past 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 we are going super girlie with lots of ruffles and bows, corsets and bustles... that's right, the lovely Lylah is here and ready to stroll across a card or two. Isn't she a beauty? I colored Lylah up in fresh, spring colors so that she could oh-so demurely catch the eye of a special suitor or two. ;)
And yes, the ephemera stickers and embellishments are still playing a big role in setting the scene for these steampunk cards but when they work as well as they do I'm not going to fight it, LOL!

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 Lylah rubber stamp! While you are there be sure to check out all of the lovely Lylah cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created!
And be sure to mark your calendars for the sale that Kellie is having 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?!
