Hambo Stamps Battle of the Bands Blog Hop!

Welcome to my stop on THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS BLOG HOP, sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today, Hambo friends (like me) and Hambo's Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict band groups; it might be one of our favorites or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Talk to the Ham (Hambo's company blog), you're in the right place; if not, click here to return to Talk to the Ham and make sure you're eligible for the hopper prize!

Here's my card; can you guess what band it represents?


One of the best British rock bands ever:
 
THE MOODY BLUES!

Hambo Stamps digi, "Grumpy Boy", available at the Hambo digishop, is the awesome focal point of my collage card. As you can see, the band had five members originally--a bit of artistic license on my part, lol. I colored each fellow with Copics and cut them out. The denim effect on their jeans is done with a scrap of denim cloth dipped in Colorless Blender and pressed onto the (still wet) Copic coloring. BoBunny DPs; album title typed in Word and printed on a scrap from Free Vintage Digital Stamps; epoxy sticker by Glitz; Tim Holtz Distressing Tool and inks.

PRIZE INFO: Hambo Stamps will award a prize to one participant whose band creation tickles the Bacon Bits Design Team fancy in a hammin'-jammin' way. Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper (that's YOU) who comments on all of the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced at Talk to the Ham on Wednesday, May 29, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown weekly challenge blog. Hambo loves comments anytime, but the deadline for "Battle of the Bands" prize entry comments is Sunday, May 26, at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

Now it's time to jam on over to LYN, your next stop on this rockin' hop! Be sure to leave me a comment before you go! Thanks for joining in the Hambo fun!
