Tickled Pink Challenge #33- Anything goes!

Wooooweeeeeeeeeeeee we had some great enteries for the last Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge ! Thank you all for playing along! If you haven't popped over to the challenge blog today (YET) you simply must do so, as I have some very exciting news over there!! go go go go quick quick quick  (lol)
Onto this weeks challenge; we have another amazing theme (as you can see from my title). We want to see
 I did not have to go searching far for the perfect image. I have chosen Lil Victorian Steampunk Lad Eric from the Tickled Pink Stamps Store. I just love his uniqueness with the large bug eye glasses and hard hat helmet! He is all set for the steampunk ways.....haha!!! I also knew that I had to match him with an awesome steampunk house I found at the Make It Crafty Blog! AmaZinG place to find the perfect backdrop to match AMaZinG images!!

Of course to match my thoughts of how unique this wee man is , I had to use a SU Define your Life sentiment on the inside of the card!
The following few pics are some of the cards finer details.

The chipboard gears I got off eBay. I sponged them with vintage photo ink (twice) then doused them with crystal effects . Then I added a bit of glitter. The bottle caps are recycled off my ceasar cocktail drinks that come in bottles. (FYI- Ceasars are vodka, clamato juice & spices--similar to Bloody Mary's)

I had a lot of fun making this card &  I have BIG plans for more stamps & digi backgrounds in the future !


PS- Don't forget about our Tickled Pink Monthly Christmas Challenge still going on. Theme is Embossing!
as well as Tickled Pink Digi Days until Aug 21st!
