The Empress Tarot Card Designed For Alpha Stamps

This is the fourth and final tarot cards I designed as an inspiration piece for the "Alpha Stamps Gypsy Fortune Teller Swap”.  The base of the card is made from a chipboard pennant which measures 4” x 6”.  I dyed white feathers to match the color scheme with Ranger Alcohol Ink.
On the back, I added the explanation for the card.

Hi Laura, I really love the look of this piece alot. So elegant but yet old world...I love the detail. Please tell me where did you get the Lanterns that are hanging are they part of a collage sheet or are they actually little lanterns. Thank you so much for all the Gypsy inspiration you have shared with us.

Take care,
Diane

Oh wow again. You keep giving me more wonderful ideas to incorporate into my gypsy heart mixed media canvas. I will send you a picture when it is done. Where did you get those CUTE lanterns?

By the way is anyone else having problems with the comment box not opening up in the mobile phone format? Maybe just my phone...

It has been a pure joy to see the amazingly beautiful Tarot cards you have created. I love them all.

You are quite gifted. Maybe you could make an entire set and sell it....just a thought :-)

I am so impressed with this and all your work on the blog. I'm intrigued with the gypsy theme. Is the explaination of the card anywhere that I have missed. These would make such fabulous ATC's
You have inspired me!
