This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge "Gypsies". It is a digital 4x6 card made from assorted copy-free clip art and artist papers. I also included a couple of (fortune card)tags that I made. Digital layering and filters added.
I have always been fascinated by the Gypsy lifestyle ( although I'm sure that the fascination is fueled by a very romantisized - Hollywood or book version rather than one based in reality). The fortune teller or seer was always portrayed as a wise and mysterious woman who read cards or gazed into a crystal to tell you your fortune (for a price , of course)! Having learned the Tarot myself I now realize that the best reading is one you do yourself- an intuitive, insightful exercise - that certainly can be aided by someone knowledgeable in the card meanings - but one who lets (you) give the cards their meaning and power.
