Tickled Pink Stamps DT - Lil Victorian Lad Luca preview!

WOW!!! How amazing was the Royal Wedding!?!?!?! Oh I watched it all and then watched all the news about it too because I didn't want it to end!! I cried so many times too - it was so beautiful and emotional!! How handsome were Princes William and Harry in their uniforms!?!?! and Kate's dress - WOW!! I want to get married again to wear one like it LOL (to my hubby of course LOL). My little boy made me chuckle during the proceedings - I was telling him who was who as they were arriving at the Abbey and told him who the Duke of Edinburgh was - which made him think of The Grand Old Duke of York nusery rhyme bless him and he wanted to know if there was one and where he was. So I spent the rest of the time scouring the screen for Prince Andrew (The Duke of York obviously) and my little boy was disappointed that he didn't have a hat with lots of feathers or any ten thousand men LOL - aren't children cute!! Anyway, enough hogging this preview post with wedding talk and back to business......

Woohoooo!!! It is preview time again at Tickled Pink Stamps and today is my turn to provide you with a sneak peek of Lil Victorian Lad Luca!! These images were just crying out for steampunk of course and was lucky to find some Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant papers at my local craft shop!! My card is larger than I would normally go for but I just HAD to use this amazing lady with all the coggs in her hair - she matches the sentiment so perfectly!!! The sentiment is also from Tickled Pink, it comes in a set and will be released at the same time as the images.

Luca is coloured with copics and I added some glossy accents to the glass in his goggles. The Steampunk bike image was cut from another Grahpic 45 paper.

The heart behind him is a chipboard one from my stash which I've wrapped in Tim Holtz' tissue tape. I then coloured some seam binding to tie around it and added a cogg - also by Tim Holtz and I added a couple of strips of film strip ribbon by Tim too!!

The sentiment, as I already mentioned, is from a new set coming soon to Tickled Pink Stamps and I've stamped it onto kraft cardstock and added another tissue taped heart and some grungeboard wings (Tim Holtz again LOL). I painted the wings with rock candy crackle paint and then coloured them with vintage photo alcohol ink.

Hope you like it! Pop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see the cards from the rest of the Pink Ladies and don't forget to pop there tomorrow too for another preview! Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend! x

This is utterly stunning Jane :)
I have also used a lot of TH stuff from my stash for these cards, especially the ones featuring the gorgoues lads ;)
LOVE those papers - talk about a perfect match! Couldn´t find anything that was very much steampunk here in Sweden ;)


Jane said...

It was a fab day..I cried too!! Jude loved it...she watched it all as soon as she got home from school (our mean council didn't give us the day off!!) and we have had to get all the papers with the fancy magazines so she can keep all the pictures!
You are going to love your Sassys! My poor other stamps have been very neglected since I got mine!lol

Absolutly gorgeous Jane.
It reminds me a bit of the Tim Holtz configeration box I have just made for my daughter, not really done anything like that before and I loveed every minute of it. No pictures of it yet tho'.
Your wings and decoupage are beautiful. Love it.
I was crying like a baby at the wedding, I was worst seeing Harry and William in their uniforms, thought about their mother did you?
I love Harry, he is my favorite, a bit naughty isn't he, what do you think he said to William when he looked at Kathrine? I think it was "She has shown up, you lucky thing"..Ha Ha

Fran said...

Amazing card Jane, I love everything about it!! You also taught me something, I had no idea there was actually a Duke of York! LOL!! To be honest I had no idea Charles had any brothers until hubby pointed them out to me, my knowledge of the monarchy is somewhat lacking apparently :)
