Battle of the Bands ~ Parrothead Style




















Welcome to "The Battle of the Bands" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict Band groups! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from the amazing Lyn's blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

A prize will be awarded to one participant whose band-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all of the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, May 29, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. (We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, May 26 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!)

My creation celebrates the fun music of Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band.  I've been fortunate to have seen Jimmy Buffett a couple of times in concert, and let's just say Parrotheads really know how to party and kick back and enjoy some island tunes.





For my card, I combined the adorable Hambo digital images of "Ocean Bottom" and "Snorkel Boy". I printed the images onto X-Press It cardstock and colored them with Copic markers.  I framed the scene with black cardstock.  I added a guitar sticker from Paper House for "Jimmy" and added some crystal beads as bubbles.  Pop-dots were added for dimension in the scene.  The patterned paper is from Bella Blvd.

Now jam on over to the talented Deborah for another great Band group that will have you tappin' your foot!

Here's the hop order, in case you get need it:
