Gothic green girl with masque


Here's my latest piece, made for a few challenges. The image is a digi stamp by Delicious Doodles, called Girl with Masque, and I did the papers in PSP.
The challenges I made it for are:
Midnight Madness Sketch 45
Stamp It Crazy - Gothic green. It actually looked much more green when I was picturing it in my mind, but the red seems to have taken over slightly in the finished piece. I don't think it helps that all the gems look black, when the pendant around her neck and the swirl in the top right are both actually a very dark green, and much more sparkly than I can capture in a photo.
The Tuesday Taggers challenge is "Masquerades, jesters and Clowns"
And the Three Muses challenge is Incognito, so I thought the masque fitted there as well :)
