I Like Traffic Lights....

This week The Game Challenge is 1, 2, 3....Redlight!(or as I know it Traffic Lights)
We have been asked to make an ATC(s) using the colours Red/Green/Amber.
When I read 1...2...3..I thought it was going to be the rhyme about catching fish, and it so happened that Collage Obsession are asking for items incorporating fish :D So I downloaded their free images and used them for my ATCs.
I have some clear plastic ATC blanks...

I added red/yellow/green inktense colour to the b/w image of an angler...


Used TH distress inks Firebrick red/Mustard seed/Peeled paint to colour a piece of backing paper...

and built up the layers on the reverse of the ATC blanks(starting with fish)


The numbers I had already stamped onto tracing paper for another project.



The images are still a bit cloudy as the glue layers are still drying. 
I am also linking these ATCs to Anything Goes Challenge #72 Let's not be Square(cos they have rounded corners lol)
Enjoy :D XXX

  15. I love where you meander along in your thought processes, and that you lead us down that path as well. :)

    I don't think many people would associate red light with fish, but it all seems so logical now!!
