The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #13

Challenge #13 Big Fish

Create a fun scene from the movie "Big Fish".  This week's challenge is sponsored by:

and here's some info from TBD challenge blog about this week's sponsor:

"We are dedicated to bringing you high quality unmounted rubber stamps that offer you new and interesting avenues of expression. Our design style is edgy, wild, distinct, and fun. We embrace the unusual, and offer you a unique perspective when it comes to rubber art stamps."

As soon as I saw this image I immediately thought "where are those tarot cards?!!".  Ummm ya, they were a gift.  I'm not exactly a "tarot" girl myself but to each their own.  :)  Well, I searched HIGH and lo for them and they were nowhere.  Then I started thinking this "Internet" thing we are all so fond of MUST have some pics so VOILA!  I found a few and printed them off to be a part of this gypsy's act. 

The movie "Big Fish" is about a man always telling big stories about his life to everyone and anyone who would listen.  So many exaggerated stories were told so over the years his son had heard them all many times and never believed them....until his father's funeral, when one by one the characters started showing up.  One of his stories was about him working in the carnival and that's where I went with my card.  What good carnival doesn't have a gypsy or two??

My first picture doesn't really show you how I 3d'ed the flourishes so hopefully you can get an idea from these pictures:

All these stamps & the gypsy digi as used above.
