Witch of Seers

I own two different–and before this mani unused–tarot stamping plates. So when the prompt of Creepy Circus came up, I had a big list of things that I could have painted, but a fortuneteller that predicts terrible futures for their customers was the perfect topic. Plus it let me paint something else for my Witches of S series, which only means something to me. Hah!

There are three different fortunetelling related words that start with ‘S’: seer, soothsaying, and second sight. I decided to go with seer since that felt like a more general term that would allow me to throw in everything from tarot cards to crystal balls to the all-seeing eye. Nothings better than more, right?

The Five of Pentacles is one of those cards that can mean financial ruin depending on its position in a tarot reading (I am definitely not an expect there, so let’s leave it at that). I decided to depict it because this is supposed to be a creepy circus, so you shouldn’t be getting a good fortune. Also, I had a great little stamping image for it. Things aligned well for me.

However, if you don’t know anything about tarot, it won’t mean much so I stuck a very unsubtle death pronouncement on my thumb. Sure, I could have used a death tarot card, but my understanding is that it’s more about change than the grave, so anyone who did understand tarot readings would shake their head at me. I do try to be culturally respectful here on the blog. I apologize if I missed. Meanwhile, uh, “Death!” 😆

Halloween Forever Collab – Creepy Circus

Oh, there are so many different topics that can go with a creepy circus, but this collage is a bit clown-heavy. Not only because clowns are inherently creepy to a lot of people, but also because it’s easier to find stamping images of them. Stephen King’s It may have something to do with that…

Check out the group tag to see all of the great creepy nail art and if you want to join in, April’s theme is fairies. The not-nice Labyrinth kind, of course. 😱

You know, I don’t really have a skittle tag on the blog because I do them all the time. (Skittle = every nail is different or if you give a number it means that many nails are different.) Simple nail art is more rare for me, which is why that does have a tag. I’d meant to repeat the scatter of cards on my index and pinkie, but then I saw the hand holding the tarot card in a full-nail pattern and I thought that would fit quite neatly on my pinkie.

Anyway, I had fun. Just threw everything on my nails for this one. If I had six fingers, there may have been a kitchen sink involved. Or at least a cup of tea.

The details fade away at a distance, but there are enough big elements that you can still get the gist.
