Soccer ball shaped card

 This is a bit noisy shaped card for the kids of my German friend to celebrate the 3rd place on the FIFA World Cup 2010. Germany took third place at it for the second tournament in a row - this was really great. But I think that all of the players belonged to other national teams did a great job with their responsibilities. I enjoyed looking at almost of the games from the group league to the final game of the 2nd stage. There're so many good plays, performances, and the scenes that I moved.
(Of course I saw the bad manners and the fouls etc. at the moments the judges couldn't notice them. But I recognize that those are one of the factors of the football game.)

 Well, here is the card that I finished a few days ago, 'Yippee!, Deutschland'.

 Used 2 types of frogs and a sentiment 'Yippee!' from Lilypad Greetings stamp set to combine with the soccer ball die and the 2 types of font by QuicKutz.
 The coloring of the four frogs are all Copic markers. And added the googly eyes on three small frogs. The sentiment 'Yippee!' was stamped inside with a signature.
 Made a Grungesheet piece diecutted the upper letter D shape. And tapped with Acrylic dabber Gold, and used a heatgun to make texture on the surface.

*This method was learned from the 2 peas stamping class last year, maybe. after I find the resource, I'm going to add here the link to the page.
UPDATED: You can see more details and beautiful samples by Jennifer McGuire
on the page, 'Thinking Inking Week 3 - part 1' at 2 peas.
* This resource was published on the web in 2009. I used the method of 'Faux Textured Metal' for my upper letter 'D' among the techniques of this class.

 I have the several reasons to use this frog stamp set. Of course, I love this set! and this set was the one that I bought through the Hero Arts Online store soon after this was released. This was a story before I belonged to the Hero Arts community.
I bought two sets at the same time, and I presented the one to my friend, the receivers of this card.

 I enjoyed many kinds of the flag paints on its face of big frogs. :)
Because I had foreign visitors come from four different countries - that was the Americans, the English, the Hollanders, and the Korean peoples - to watch the football games on my catv. The broadcasting by terrestrial was really minimum by the expensive televising right.
They loved the frogs and brought them home. I wish I could take pics of those.

American Crafts and Bazzil CS, Tim Holtz ideaology grungesheet
