Sing me a song...

Hello again!

It's time for another brand new rubber stamp preview from Tickled Pink! We are super excited to be kicking off the year with some fresh, new images that are different and fun! This time the Lolitas and Lads have traveled back in time to the era of the Greek Gods and Goddesses and these images designed by Christina Dee are absolutely amazing. I promise that you are going to love all six of the previews leading up to the release on January 20th (Jan. 19th for those of us in the States).

Today we've got a bit of a gender switch-a-roo going on as Kellita is taking on the role of Orpheus. Orpheus was the son of Apollo and the Muse Calliope and while he wasn't actually a Greek God but rather a musician and a poet, it is said that Orpheus' music and song were so enticing that they could charm the very birds from the trees, soothe Cerberus and bring the Furies to tears. He was also one of Jason's Argonauts during the quest to recover the Golden Fleece.


So even if we are taking a few liberties, I think that Kellita makes for a gorgeous ancient Greek songstress. She certainly seems to have her own musical magic about her. As for my card, this was an easy one... girly and pretty with plenty of flowers and critters for her to serenade. And when paired with this sentiment I think this becomes a lovely Valentine. :)

Now, 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 Kellita Orpheus digi stamp! And while you are there be sure to check out all of the fantastic cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created too!
