Another Tickled Pink Stamps DT preview!!

Woohoo!! It is time for me to share another preview of the gorgeous new Tickled Pink Stamps range - Lil Victorians!! Meet Lil Victorian Lad Eric!!

I was halfway through making my card (the hot air balloon on this layout) and was going to cut out the globe and telescope from this amazing Webster's Pages paper and just couldn't bring myself to do it LOL - so I decided to put my card onto a scrapbook layout!

I love this picture of my husband and little boy so much - they look so engrossed! It was very sunny when I took it and they had the window behind them so there is a lovely soft light coming from behind them. I printed it in sepia so that it toned with the rest of the page.

Here's Lil Victorian Lad Eric and his balloon in more detail. The balloon card still lifts up and I am going to put some journalling underneath the basket and balloon sections so that you can only see them when you lift the balloon up. I made the balloon from acetate and then added some gorgeous Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant papers for the balloon and basket. I added ropes with button twin, a cordoruy scrap for a patch on the balloon and some jute ribbon. The amazing coggs are by Tim Holtz.

I have coloured Eric with copics and added glossy accents to the glass in his goggles and on his watch.

The butterfly I've had in my stash for about two years now - no idea where it came from but it was absolutely perfect for the textures of this layout!

This amazing sentiment was another reason I decided to create a layout instead of a card - such a powerful sentiment! This is another from the sentiment set being released at the same time as the images! I stamped it onto kraft cardstock. I added some gorgeous wide jute ribbon and a Basic Grey button too.

The kraft cardstock behind the image is from a scrapbook paper by MME - it has spaces for journalling underneath the title - the whole piece slides out from behind the photo.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Pop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see more inspiration from the fabulous Pink Ladies using Eric! x
