Gypsy Fortune Teller

The Gypsy Fortune Teller Swap over at Alpha Stamps is in full swing.  I've received some really gorgeous pieces of art, and think this may be the best swap Alpha Stamps has had (but I think that every time LOL)

Next week, August 25th, is the final sale date for all the wonderful Gypsy themed items Alpha Stamps offers.  So make sure to take a trip over and check out the 100 goodies on sale!

I thought it was about time for me to share my Fortune Teller piece.  To see some of my other Gypsy art, scroll down through my blog or check out my Alpha Stamps Gallery.

I wanted it to appear that my fortune teller was in a booth, so I cut an opening in the banner and created a window by building up foam core around the opening.   

It was important to me that my caravan pieces move.  So I took a trip over to a local craft store and bought some wooden wheels.  I needed to bling them up so I added decorated bottle caps.  They are attached to a dowel that runs through the caravan.  One of my daughters favorite things to do now when she is with me in the studio is play with this piece because it does move.

I kept the backs simple.  Used some of the lovely papers available at Alpha stamps and their gorgeous Gypsy Rubber stamp.

I loved creating this caravan (I think it is my favorite one) and would love to see you participate in the swap. 

Thanks for looking.
