Diva Challenge #280 Olympics Rio 2016

The Diva and Adele Bruno both chose an Olympic theme so I'm cheating somewhat and using one tile for both challenges.
Phew! The IAST string was '16'  A challenge it certainly was, my 'taste' alarm was ringing at the number of colours in the rings but five colours it is!
The pattern Drogon from Lily Moon was part of  the IAST #158 challenge so, as that made think of the feather fans and headdresses from Brazilian carnivals, I decided to use Vicki Bassett's Showgirl as one of my 'go to' patterns. As it was already a bit of an extravaganza of colour I thought the colours of Brazil's flag may as well join the party :)
Just lately I've been reading of people passing along tiles for friends to add to then pass along again..a relay :) So Carole Ohl's Baton is the final addition that needs to be referenced I think..relays..batons..? The Baton design also reminded me of the ribbons for the medals.

    1. Oh Melissa you're so kind! Does anyone else work hard on a tile and then just lose all confidence? The power of kind comments is awesome!

    1. It's so nice when others see what I was trying to achieve..I still don't pull that off very often! Early days for me and lovely friendly people keep me trying. Thank you :)

  4. The way you have the interlocking rings peaking out from behind a curtain of sorts is a really delightful way to use this string! I enjoyed reading about the cleaver way you chose your tangles for this tile, too!
