Oi, Oi, Oi!
It’s the Australian version of a chant, mostly commonly heard at sporting event. It’s so famous, it’s become part of our culture…. our brand.
So when I saw this weeks colour challenge at
Can You Case It #133 I was more than a little excited!! This weeks colours are Australia’s sporting colours – Green and Gold! (Okay… well… close enough!)
I had to use this opportunity to be patriotic, especially with the Olympics currently happening in Rio. Have you been watching?
Here is my card – Oi, Congrats!
I used the largest of the swirls from the swirly scribble thinlit dies for the O and the I is from the Large Letter Framelit dies. I used these to create the Oi. [For my international friends, the word Oi is one of those multipurpose words where it can mean a few different things depending on the context. Most commonly, in Aussie slang, it is used as a way of getting someone’s attention – a bit like calling out “hey” or “hey you”.]
So my card actually says – “Hey, Congrats” and is a salute to our athletes.
The stars are from the 2016-18 In-colour Enamel shapes. I used the Emerald Envy stars and assembled them in the formation of the Southern Cross constellation.
I can’t wait to see what you create with these colours. Looking forward to you playing along.
Until next time…. Stamp creatively,
P.S. if anyone knows a returning athlete and would like to give them this card, message me and I’ll post it to you so you can use it to give to them.
