Gypsy - Sunday Postcard Art

Here is my entry for the 'gypsy' challenge set by Sunday Postcard Art.

Although it looks simple it actually took a long time to put together. It was created digitally. To start I erased the background from the photo of the gypsy . I then put her in an oval frame. This image was then placed over the rose background and darkened. Some of the script was appearing across her face, so I erased it. As a final touch, I added the lace frame, coloured it cream and cut the surplus edges.

Apologies! Both the gypsy image and the rose background were freebies I have acquired, but failed to note where from. Let me know & I will add an acknowledgement.

Your postcard is beautiful and full of emotion!
It would take me forever to do anything digital (not there yet) so I definitely appreciate what time must have gone into your creation :)
