Vintage colors

Hi-dee ho!
I hope everyone is having a most excellent day. :)

So the official previews may be over but I still had one more "Lil Victorian Steampunk" from Tickled Pink Stamps who was just itchin' to get onto a card. Luckily for me, and Eric here, the new challenge now up over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog is to use vintage colors.
Nothing says vintage colors to me more than brown so I used quite a bit of it when putting together my card and coloring up Eric. Then I relied on my stash of old scrappy 'vintage ephemera' die cuts and stickers to finish the whole thing off and complete Eric's story. Sure he could fly a plane like all of the other pilots but why settle for being so confined when you can just strap a jet pack on your back and take off to parts unknown! LOL ;)

Now it is your turn to ink up a Tickled Pink stamp and play along. Kellie has another great prize up for grabs this week that some lucky stamper is going to win... why not you?! Just don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.

Well, it's time for me to jet too... ciao! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- Basic Grey (Curio)
stamps- Tickled Pink (Victorian Steampunk Eric), Hero Arts (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black, Colorbox chestnut and Tim Holtz antique linen distress

Hi Amy. I love Eric. This card is just wonderful! I love the vintage plane and the map and everything. lol... I even made Jerry come look at it. I love the feel of Old meets Future on this. I don't know I really just love this one. I hope that you have a great day. We had a great rain storm last night. It had my 6ft windchimes blowing sideways for about 20 minutes. It's pretty again today, but suppose to end up in a storm again. Hugs, Lisa
