Tickled Pink Stamps Preview - Wilfred Wombat

Meet Wilfred the Wombat - he'll be available for purchase from tomorrow over at Tickled Pink Stamps. And how exciting for us to have an Aussie Animal from our favourite Aussie store!

I decided to make something a little different - a lumiere. If you'd like to know HOW I made this you'll have to wait until Wednesday when my tutorial will be published on the Tickled Pink Stamps blog - it's really NOT hard and I'd LOVE to know if anyone else makes one! I wanted to keep the Aussie flavour going so I borrowed a gum blossom stamp from a friend of mine for the top corner - this stamp is from Fern Gully Stamps. My one regret is that I should have trimmed the white out between Wilfred and the tree - but I realised that too late! Ah well - live and learn!

And here he is all lit up....

Now don't forget to pop over to the TPS blog and see what some of the other DT gals have done with Wilfred - and I know there will be a chance to win this cutie too!

Oh my goodness I had stopped on the first picture of this cute mouse who looks like me when I was 6! I was thinkiong how cute he was and how the bling actually gave the card movement and then I scrolled down. What a surprise...Now I will read the post (wink)

I saw a show when I was a kid about a guy who had wombats for pets! I still haven't outgrown my want of a chubby little critter all my own! I MUST have this stamp! Gorgeous card too!

Creepy Glowbugg said...

Sorry Debbie, it's not a card at all is it? It is an awesome lumiere though!!

Oh Debbie, I love this idea! It looks fabulous. I saw some battery operated tea lights last week ~ they might work really well with this idea :)

Looking forward to seeing your tutorial!
