Tickled Pink Challenge #18 - Sketch

Hello! It's time for a new Tickled Pink Stamps challenge! This is my 1st one as guest designer, and I'm SO excited that Challenge #18 is a sketch! TPS is currently previewing their images in a new collection called Lil Victorian Steampunk, and I was lucky enough to receive a few of them to play with! Here I've used Lil Victorian Steampunk Lilith. I've never done a Steampunk card before, but after the inspiration from the fabulous design team on the TPS blog, I thought I was ready... I hope you like the result! If you like Lilith, then be sure to check out the stunning samples from the design team on the Tickled Pink Stamps blog!

Tim Holtz products are fabulous for this style, and I used a few of his hardware pieces to dress up my card. I also found a new paper stack from DCWV called Tattered Time that I incorporated. Add some dry embossing, a Martha Stewart border punch and a few Prima flowers and I was quite pleased with my 1st Steampunk effort. The new collection will be available for purchase in rubber on May 7th (that's actually May 6th @ 10am for us in the States since TPS is located in Australia). It took me a bit to figure out the time difference since owner Kellie seems like she's always awake and responding to emails and posts! lol They're also having a Buy 3, Get Your 4th Free sale on their rubber so it's a great time to stock up on these fabulous images! (Note:They will be available as digis for one week this month, starting on the 15th.) You can shop here!

I'd also like to enter this into the Crafty Cardmakers challenge. The theme for Challenge #45 is Steampunk or Machines. How appropriate! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
