Gothic Arches- Gypsy

Gypsy Rose Lee
When I first thought about the theme Gypsy I did one of a fortune teller, but I was really disappointed with how it came out,so back to the drawing board. My next attempt is of Gypsy Rose Lee the famous Burlesque stripper from years past. I ran a sheet of aluminum thru the cuttle bug for the background ,painted it red, used lace for the curtains ,some feathers and rhinestones.
