Gothic Arch and Mixed Media Challenges: Carnivale/Masquerade/Mardi Gras

Mixed Media Mondays and Gothic Arch both have Mardi-Gras for their theme this week. I recently made this ATC that I thought might fit the bill. Here it is for the Mixed Media challenge--




And here it is after I added an arch behind it that I colored with q-tips dipped in lime and turquoise pigment ink pads:
