Gothic Arches - Mardi Gras

As it's Mardi Gras time in New Orleans next weekend, this is the theme from Gothic Arches.

This lady started off life as Marlene Dietrich - she was the only image I have that the mask fitted!! I have added this Creative Expressions sentiment to an alcohol ink background and made her an elaborate headdress. She's even got her ticket ready!

Thanks for looking.
