Team USA

It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the Dude Time Doodles Freebie/Guest Designer challenge.  Go pick up Jimmy Gymnastic at the challenge blog, work him up, submit him using the Mr. Linky button, and the winner of this challenge will also be our newest guest designer Dude (or Dudette).

Since this image was chosen in honor of the Summer Olympics, I decided to deck out Jimmy in Team USA colors.  The image was printed twice, colored with Copics, and fussy cut out.  I also added pop dots for added dimension.  The piece of equipment behind him is actually covered with a strip of suede ribbon (I copied the image onto the ribbon and cut it out).  All the background papers and elements are from the Echo Park Fourth of July pack.  I also added a bit of twine for the banner string and around the sentiment.

Now hurry on to the Dude Time Doodles blog and pick up Jimmy for yourself.  You only have one week to get him uploaded.  While you're there, be sure to visit the rest of the Dude/Dudettes to see what they've done with Jimmy.

Copics used: YG00, YG01, Y28, E87   E01, E02, E11, E13, BV20   YR12, YR09, E97   E57, E59, E37   R17, B18, B39, E40, colorless blender

Anne, this is fabulous. I love how you colored him up, and the papers are scrumptious. My DD loved this card when I showed her last night. Made her interested in the Olympics. Well done!!! Hugz.
