Gypsy

This week, on SPA, we have asked you to embrace your Bohemian side and create a postcard for us featuring Gypsies.

Here is mine
My postcard is made using a collaged background, gesso, collage image, stamped images, watercolours, and embossing.

Is that your Bohemian side up there on the right with the pink hair and the amazing cleavage??? Well, say howdy!!!
Your sample gypsy is fun and a great inspiration for the challenge. I've enjoyed seeing all the wonderful entries you inspired! Thanks, Mandy!
