Dueling Darlings - August

Happy August!   The Dueling Darlings from SCS are ready to post their "Going to Rio With the Olympic Darlings" creations for this month.  I am so excited to see what everyone has done!

Judy was our hostess this month.  She was permitted by ScrappinDoodles to gift us with this adorable digi image.  Is it weird I like his perfectly round head?!  Okay....

Thinking of the Olympics, then Rio, then of course you know that you are thinking it too....Copacabana.  The famous beach in Brazil!  Well, I am not too much a Barry fan, but Copacabana made me think of this snippet from Friends and it makes me laugh.

Here is my Olympic duel card.  I was able to use a lot of the embellies that Judy sent, including her custom made sentiment.   I used a Spica pen for the lettering to give a slight gold sparkle.  The flames too.


I have enjoyed a few late night viewings of the Olympic coverage.  It must be an amazing experience.  Judy, thank you for the great kit and theme for this month's duel.     Be sure to see what all the DDD's created.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Go for the gold!

OMG! Tami, when I first looked at your card I thought I had made a mistake and brought up my blog...I can't believe how very similar our cards our from using the same dsp and putting sequins on the balloons, using the boy torch bearer positioned to hold the balloons and also using the same sentiment!! Hey! Great minds think alike! LOL!!! But I like how you colored that sweet guy and put a cutout of the USA circle on his shirt love the blue and yellow panels with the red ribbon and also the use of the brads and how you fussy cut the sentimentb and used the gold spica pen to color it and enhance the torch flame. Great job!!!

Your card is fantastic. I love the way you used the sequins and brads on the ballon DP. Great coloring of the image and I love the the placement of the sentiment on the bottom of the card. You rocked going to Rio!

Tami--your card is wonderful. I love the layers of balloons, sequins and then topped with brads. Great coloring on the image too.

This is so cute Tami! The coloring is so perfect, and I really like the bright bold colors behind the image. And what a perfect idea to punch a circle out of the flag paper to put on the t-shirt!

I'm going to go watch the Friends' video and do a little giggling! I remember that episode well now that you mentioned it!

XOXO ~ LJ
