PTI Australia challenge

Nichole's 4th challenge was to make a card that was Australian inspired.  Nichole spoke of masking and Aboriginal drawings and how they were typically outlined.  I chose this turtle from an older SU set and stamped in Versamark and then embossed with verdigris powder.  Love this rustic effect and colour.  I then outlined with a marker and also filled in some areas amongst the dashes with a Copic marker.  I like the different textures, but don't know if it truly exemplifies the Aboriginal "effect" that I was hoping to create.  Oh well, I think the image looks "hieroglyphic" and could possibly pass?
Thanks for looking!
