Tickled Pink Stamps DT - Lil Lads Blog Hop!!


Woohoo!!! Welcome to the Tickled Pink Stamps Lil Lads Blog Hop!!! You should have reached me from the amazingly talented Fran's blog, if not you may want to start the hop from the beginning at the Tickled Pink Stamps blog as there are prizes to be had!! I have used the sultry and gorgeous Lestat on my card - LOVE his outfit!!! - and papers from MME's La Paperie stack - heavilly distressed with walnut stain distress ink!
I have coloured Lestat with copics and added gold seam details and buttons to his outfit with a gold pen. I added a strip of Tim Holtz filmstrip and made some rosette flowers with Tissue Tape. The gem brads are from The Hobby House and I created a swirl with black pearls from my stash.

I used Tim Holtz' Tissue Tape around the edges of the card underneath the designer paper.

I distressed some Tim Holtz tickets with rock candy crackle paint and ink stains in vintage photo and broken china.

Hope you like it! Hop on over to the super talented boss lady Kellie's blog to see what stunning creation she has for you!! Thanks for looking! x

Such a great card. Love your colour scheme great for a man/boys card. He is rather moody isn't he Lestat!! But he looks fabulous on this card.

Fran said...

Wow, I love everything about this card but I have to say my favourite thing about it is your flowers, and the fact that you can pull off flowers on a male card. I am always worried they make it too girly (and too plain without, lol) but you totally make it work!!
