Today, the Bacon Bits, along with some Hambo friends, have a great concert line-up in store for you. Using Hambo images, we are creating cards or projects that represent the name of a band. This could be a current or now-defunct band, a Music Hall of Fame band, or even one that was a one-hit wonder.
Besides all the inherent fun in seeing this diverse group of musical acts we've put together, we've also got some prizes to hand out for jamming along with us. A $15 shopping spree in our digi store will be awarded to a randomly-drawn groupie who leaves a comment at each of the blog stops along the way, and a $20 Hambo site-wide shopping spree will go to the band manager (a.k.a. project creator) chosen by the Bacon Bits as our "Best in Show" participant. Though we appreciate comments any time, the deadline for prize-consideration comments is Sunday, May 26 at 5:00PM CST. We'll reveal the winners on this blog, as well as on our Hoedown blog, on Wednesday, May 29 ... so don't forget to check back!
Now it's time to raise your lighter for our opening act... HOLE!
For some reason, I kept thinking of one-word band names to represent: Queen, Metallica, Radiohead, Hole... While Hole was never one of my favorite bands, I did quite like the song "Violet" back in the day...
For this card, I used a combination of rubber stamp & digi images. The "hole" is one of the craters from our "Moonscape" digi background. It was printed directly onto the kraft paper, and then I cut the hole out and popped that layer up so that there would be an actual hole you could drop something into. (Wait, where did my keys go?) I paired the Dirt Pile and "The Dirt" rubber stamps (plus the little Art Impressions grass stamp ... ssshh!!) to complete the scene.
As is often the case, I couldn't stop with one, so another one-named band follows....
One of the fun things about using digi stamps is that they're easy to manipulate. Here, using our Racecar digi image, I was able to actually blur the images before I printed them. I DID color them first on the computer, blurred everything, printed, then trimmed the images out. I thought the "Time Gone" rubber stamp sentiment was perfect, because if you ask someone "Where has the time gone?" a common answer is "I know, it's been a blur!"
Incidentally, since this is band #2, how about a little taste of Blur's music with "Song 2"?
Now it's time for the next band to take the stage, so head over to Sherry's blog! If you get lost along the way, the complete band line-up is below. And if anyone asks, just tell them "I'm with the band."
