The Game Challenge #6 - "1,2,3...Redlight"

My Facebook buddy, June MacFarlane, posted a challenge being held at The Game blog called "1, 2, 3...Redlight". This is challenge #6 and it is to create an ATC using the colors of a traffic light: red, amber [yellow] and green. This week's sponsor is ARTChix Studio and the winner will receive one of their beautiful collage sheets.

First, I sprayed the background with Dylusions Ink Sprays in Pure Sunshine and the corners with Fresh Lime, then highlighted the edges with Mustard Seed & Peeled Paint Distress Inks. The image is a vintage ad for a silk company. I made the miniature tassel from multi-color thread and dangles freely from the top of the Oriental coin. The stamps for Longevity, Health and Good Luck are stamped randomly in black, red and green inks. Hope you all like it and thanks for stopping by!!! :)
