Mardi Gras Gothic Arch

The theme this week on gothic arches is Mardi Gras / Carnival, when I was younger I absolutely loved carnivals, the noise and the mass of colour was fantastic, so with this theme I knew my arch had to be colourful, I am not usually into colours but I certainly used some on this arch,
The background is painted and I have drawn some little stars and squiggles, the lady is stamped and coloured with luminere paints, I drew the little hearts on her face, the eye mask has 3 tiny flat back crystals and some feathers the butterfly is raised, hope that you like this arch !!!!
