Gothic Arches - Turquoise


I was drawn to making a faux batik background for this using Patina Glimmer ink over an Elusive Images stamp for the turquoise with a photo transfer. Thoughts of turquoise and Egypt or Mexico were running through my head then I spotted this image in my collection and I was reminded of that terrible old joke Q: what's a Grecian urn? A: about 1 dollar an hour! Sorry for bad joke.

Gorgeous gorgeous arch (but bad-d-d-d joke!) Love your thoughts on turquoise. I think of the southwestern US states when I think of turquoise.
