London 2012 – It’s Time for the Olympics

     We just love sports in our house! No matter what season, there is a team we follow no matter what! Now, the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, also known informally as “London 2012″, will begin on July 27th and go until August 12th.  Well, The Outlawz are showing their excitement about the upcoming Games of the XXX Olympiad (as they are officially called) by hosting an Olympics or Sports theme for this week’s Copic/Promarker Challenge!
      You will have from now until July 26th to enter our challenge, and don’t forget to also enter into the Monthly Inklinz (one entry per week) to be eligible to win a prize. Our sponsor for the month of July’s Copic/Promarker Challenge is:

    One random winner will win THREE DIGIS from the Dilly Beans on-line store.  Be sure to check out Megan’s new blog here.
      For my image, I selected Kenny K’s digi “Runner”.  I colored him with copics and a touch of Tuscan Red prismacolor pencil. I embellished the “flame” and his torch with Stickles, Glossy Accents and a bit of Martha Stewart’s Tinsel Glitter. I also added some Glossy Accents on those gold cuffs that accent his muscles!  This runner definitely has his own “bling” going on so I did not need to add any!

     The dp is “Liberty” by Bo Bunny and “Glory” by Authentique. I die cut stars from Quickutz Star Dies, cardstock and scraps of design paper.  The sentiment is computer generated and the British flag is a 3D embellishment that I thought fit this theme.

    We hope we have inspired you to get into the Olympics spirit!  Remember, your project can be connected to any sport or to the Olympics! Let’s see what you create!  Check out what the rest of the Design Team has created here.  Go USA!  Have a great day and thanks, always, for your kind comments!

  11. Wow Anne Marie, what a simply stunning card, I have been looking at the fire from historch for the last five minutes and I am in awe! It's literally awesome. How you managed to make it look to alive and kinetic is amazing, the whole card has an energy to it that is simply buzzing. You colouring really drew my eye to study the image too. I love how you have used you pencils to add real depth to your colouring which was already brilliant to start with, this card is a real winner for me and a total favourite of the week's challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew. I raise my hat to you and wish you good luck and really hope that we will see you again for the next challenge and many more after that. Really well done.
