Gothic Arch Challenge - Turquoise

This week's Gothic Arch theme is turquoise - what a nice change for me! I have been a little heavy handed with the Marmalade Distress ink (!) so it was fun to make something in a completely different color palette. I used the Gesso Batik technique from the latest Technique Junkie newsletter for my background. The background stamp is one of my faves from Time to Stamp/I Brake for Stamps and the girl is from Oxford Impressions.
