Gypsy Fun at Alpha Stamps

Let me look into your future.... I see you meeting some talented artists and learning some new tricks.  I also see one of you winning big.  Yes, you read correctly. A big prize at Alpha Stamps. One of you lucky blog hoppers will be winning $100 worth of art supplies from Alpha Stamps, but only if you visit the other Design Team Member's blogs and figure out the four word Gypsy Fortune.  One word appears on each of the four member's blogs and you have to put those four words in the correct order.  Then, leave the secret saying as a comment on the Alpha Stamps Blog to have your name entered to win. 

Some other wonderful news is that Alpha Stamps is hosting a new Gypsy Swap that I am super excited about.  Not only did I get to design some cool art to show you, but I have also signed up for the Gypsy Swap which means I will get to exchange some of my art with others who sign up.  Will you be one of them?  Let me look into my crystal ball to find the answer. Click below to find out more about this swap using the new Concertina Chipboard Pennants.  There's even a special sale for those who join in on the Gypsy Caravan! 



Below is the sample work that I created for my job on the Design Team, which I LOVE.  It's a four car gypsy caravan and I LOVE how it turned out!  Don't you LOVE it too?


The above photo shows one side of the caravan, and the photo below shows, can you guess?  That's right, it shows the other side. I especially love my vintage Gypsy doll head.  I have had that doll for some time now and she has a big hole in her poor head, which in my opinion gives her character.  Then, all of a sudden, this idea popped into my head and she became the beautiful Gypsy that she is using all sorts of wonderful new beaded trims and strands from Alpha Stamps. 



I think the above caravan is my favorite, with it's little fortune hanging out.  I used some old ceramic electrical pieces to create the wheels for these caravans and then decorated them with fabulous Lucite flowers and Glass Trumpet Flowers from Alpha Stamps. 





Another favorite caravan is the "Lucky Number" shown above.  My favorite number is seven, so I was able to use some dice and a domino from Alpha Stamps as well as a vintage bingo piece. And if you have any questions about other products that I used or about my caravan, feel free to leave me a comment and I will get back to you.  Do you see the eye that is watching you? It wants to watch you leave my blog and go to the next by clicking the link below.  Good luck!

Your caravan is just the coolest thing. I don't know which car is my favorite. I love how the door opens on the one with the gypsy inside. You also know how I feel about your gypsy head - brilliant!
