Meet Lil Victorian Steampunk Lilith Preview Day 1

Evening Peeps,

I know a second post on a Saturday, whatever next, lol.  Well there is a reason for it..... I was asked a couple of  months back by Kellie if I would guest design for a new release at Tickled Pink Stamps and  well we had to do a little re-scheduling  a long the way, but woo hooooo, we made it and here I am. Today's preview is Lil Victorian Steampunk Lilith.  I can tell you I have had soo much fun with these images, so be sure to check out the previews going on at Tickled Pink Stamps and if you pop on over and leave a comment you could win Lilith .  I will be posting again during the week and joining the blog hop on 7th May, so they don't get rid of me that easily........

I have used one of my favourite paper brands, Websters,  distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink and some white acrylic paint.  Really loving my paints at th moment.

Here's Lilith.

Another favourite of mine is the corrugated card ripped and painted. I have also cut out the flower using a Marianne Design poinsetta die, who said they were only for Chritmas?, and distressed it using Tim Holtz Crackle paint and added a little white acrylic paint here and there.  I have layered this onto a lasercut chipboard cog and added a lasercut chipboard swirly vine, both available from Make It Crafty, god these are just the best! Oh, and I can't forget that little clock in the centre.  Just precious, wish I knew where I got them from.  I know it was at a show a couple of years ago and I have used them sparingly, not wanting to part with them.  So if you know where I can get some more, I'd love to know.

I have coloured up some white seam binding using my distress inks and water and you can see it kind of has a two tone effect.  Love it.  Oops, another cog there on the right hand side and again I have added acrylic paint to it and the odd splash of white acrylic paint.

Oh and I added a Kay and Co butterfly sticker, been in my stash for years, lol.  Popped it onto some cardstock so that I could bend its wings and give it some dimension.
