Our theme this week is “Gypsy” and our hostess Mandy has done a beautiful arch with vibrant colors, image and details. What comes to your mind when you think of a gypsy? Crystal balls? a mystical lady? foreign lands? We would love to see your creation in gothic form!

A bit about our hostess…

My name is Mandy, I’m a full~time mum and also a carer for my disabled mum. I have been crafting a long time, but only took up rubberstamping about 2 years ago, and I’m totally addicted! Although I’m predominantly a rubberstamper I would love to do more mixed media art.
I chose ‘Gypsy’ as a theme because of the sumptious colours associated with them, all the wonderful lushious richness of everything you think of when you think of gypsies.
