Tickled Pink Stamps DT - Lil Victorian Blog Hop release!!

Woohooo!!! Welcome to the Tickled Pink Stamps Lil Victorian blog hop! If you're hopping along you should have reached my blog from the talented Fran's blog, if not you may want to start back at the beginning at the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to enjoy the hop! I have used two of the amazing new images on my card today - Lil Victorian Lilith and Lil Victorian Evie.



The card tells a story around the fab Tim Holtz sentiment "It's never too late to find out who you want to be". Stamped in antique linen distress ink is Lil Victorian Evie - all in her Victorian finery and restrictive corset :( - but underneath it all, deep inside she really wants to be dressed like Lil Victorian Lilith in her amazing Steampunk outfit hehehe!!! I've coloured Lilith with copics and added glossy accents to the glass in her goggles, the ivory handle of her gun and the glass in her watch.


The amazing papers are Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant. The corset sizes sheet was cut from the backing paper and the corset was cut from one of the other papers too.



I stamped the sentiment onto the reverse of the corset paper - love the colours of this paper! I distressed the edges and stickled them. The pin is one I made myself from a pearl headed pin and a gorgeous bead (from Whiff of Joy but no longer available I'm afraid). The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and the gorgeous leaf was a gift from Fran (thanks again hun). I added a few black pearls along the edge of one of the papers too.



Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Now it is time to hop on over to the amazing Kellie's blog to see what she has created for you! x


BEFORE you hop along, I wanted to let you all know that there is a sale starting today on the 7th May at Tickled Pink Stamps too! Buy 3 rubber stamps and get a 4th FREE.... How amazing is that. While you are free to offer your choice, you may not always get it.
