Here's yet another Wicked Circus swap tin (if you'd like to see our gallery so far, click here). I made this one for the fabulous Killam Creative. She mentioned that she was delightfully frightened of fortune tellers, so I decided to give her a bit of a side show.

The ringmaster inviting you into the big top. I used a bit of beeswax on this to make it look old and more foreboding:


The amazing queen of the fortune tellers:

The wheel on the left spins and will actually tell you what sort of man you will marry. Impressive!  Cheesy

A closeup of the gypsy and her crystal ball (actually a half marble with swirly paper glued to the flat side):


And the back of the tin, with pesky clowns, coming out to get you:


Check out the gallery sometime to see the rest of the awesome circus tins!

I got my images from Alpha Stamps, and the Graphic 45 paper from an independent craft store near me. I know Alpha Stamps will be carrying that paper soon, if they're not already (it's the new Cirque line). They also carry lots of other great papers that would go well with a Halloween theme.  Smiley
