HDH Challenge or Dance, Percy, Dance

Hey there, I'm back from having fun in the summer sun for a few weeks (okay, fun in the dark movie theatre, because it's too damn hot outside!) and I'm ready to play.

This week's challenge over at Haunted Design House is Hiding in the Corners - something that is obviously adorned in the corners. 

I have a friend's birthday coming up and I know she's going to love this adorable Unicorn digi from Andrea over at Smudgetastic Digis.   I hand colored him (for my purposes, his name is Percy) with pencils and gave his horn and hooves a little glossy accent because Percy needs to look his best.    He also needed a little rump tattoo so I made him a moon and bat because my friends always expect at least one bat from me.  

Andrea also has some cool skulls (Skullie and Norman) - I fussy cut a dozen or so of these little beasts and made a little skull pile for Percy to stand on.

Dance, Percy, Dance!!  

I mounted Percy and a few skulls with foam tape to give them a little dimension. The unmounted sentiment "happy, happy, happy" goes with the "birthday" on the inside.  I decided to do something cheery on the corners and made little red polka dot ribbon banners.  (Ignore the odd ribbon shadow on the left, I couldn't get rid of it, no matter how I turned my project into the sun.)  Each layer is foam mounted - for a grand total of 5 layers.

I'm also entering Percy in the following challenges:
