Sing Your Art Out

Greetings Earthlings,

Welcome to "Sing Your Art Out" sponsored by Hambo Stamps!
You should have arrived from Carla's Corner. 

If you just stumbled onto this hop, you can go to the Hambo Blog to start at the beginning to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize! A prize will be awarded to one participant whose song-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a singin' wingin' way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all the blogs along the hop. The winners will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, September 21. 

If you get lost or want to skip around, I have a complete list at the end of this post.

Today Hambo friends, customers, and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict song titles!

Gimme a beat!!!!!!!!

Ice, Ice Baby!

I combined two  fun images from Hambo stamps Ice Hole Set and Igloo/Ice.

Since I wanted this to look COLD I thought printing it in blue would be cool. (Yes, pun intended!) So I kept the penguin black and changed the rest to blue using Photoshop Express. Here's what I came up with:

I used my Copics to add color to the image. I needed a lighter B91 so I made my own blend! I've been wanting to try this for a long time and I finally got the nerve. I used one part B91 various ink to one part colorless blender. I had already bought a few 'empty' markers so I put the blend into one with a syringe I found at an art supply store. (And my husband wonders why I love to 'browse'!)

Here are the Copics I used:

Note the one I labeled -B91..

I used a card base by DCWV and applied Distress Ink Stormy Skies on the edges of it with an ink blender.

I used a reallllllly old Marvy corner punch on the main image too. It is my favorite corner punch. I think it adds just the right detail without being over-powering.

I embellied with some snowflake buttons - one of which I cut in half (with my 'crap' scissors). I also used some silver snowflake brads. I cut the 'brad' off with side cutter pliers (stolen from hubby.. shhhhh).. then used foam tape to mount them. I rarely leave the 'brad' part on because I don't plan ahead and I don't like the 'arms' of the brad showing on the inside of my card.

I hope my song choice doesn't become an earworm for you today.. I know I couldn't get it out of my head while I was creating!

"..word 2 yr muther.."

 Now hop on over to Hey Hey Paula  for another great sing-along song!
