Catch the Bug Challenge - Show Your Team Colors

Today over at Catch the Bug challenge blog we have a "Show Your Team Colors" challenge.  The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa begins on 06/11/2010 and ends on 07/11/2010. The World Cup is only held once every four years and is the world's premier soccer event.

Since we have a lot of international followers (Germany, The Netherlands, South Africa, Greece, Malta, etc) and an international design team (US, UK/Wales, Australia, and Canada), we thought it'd be fun to sponsor a challenge that features:
  • the team colors of the country that he/she wants to win the World Cup
  • the colors of his/her national flag
  • the colors of his/her favorite sports team 

I began by combining BugABoo Brats Sports Soccer Boy and Cheerleader girl in Adobe Photoshop Elements, sizing and printing them to fit my Spellbinders Label 8 die.
Copics used:
Brats - E000, E00
Hair - E34, YR12, Y32
Outfits - R29, B24
Soccer ball - C6
I airbrushed B91 around the image before removing it from the die. I computer generated the saying and again airbrushed B91 around it before removing it from my Spellbinders Fancy Tag.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Be sure to check out the Catch the Bug challenge blog for more fabulous creations from the Design Team.  And play along for a chance to win....

1st prize - 7 Bugaboo Digi Images of your choice
2nd prize - 4 Bugaboo Digi Images of your choice
3rd prize - 2 Bugaboo Digi Images of your choice
