Happy Hour Horace forced to be Festive.

Hello - A little earlier I posted this card over on the Dr Digi facebook page.
I've combined Happy Hour Horace with the hat from Double Bass Doug and forced him to celebrate christmas. I know a few people like Horrace!!


I covered the base card with patterned paper from Pebbles and mounted the image panel onto black card. I used a saying sticker from Kaisercraft which I thought was ironic!! I also used some glaze on the glass.

I used these promarkers to colour him -
Skin - Usual
Suit -  Warm Greys,
Hat - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy with Lime Green & Emerald with gold & canary bell.
Glass - Powder blue, linen froth, Raw Sienna & Mustard.

I hope Horace brings you some joy!

Party time with Photocopier Pheobe

Yep - Party season is on us.... every weekend at the mo and it's costing me a fortune!!! Luckily none of my parties take place anywhere near a photocopier or I reckon someone would think this was a good idea like Photocopier Pheobe (Yep - probably me!!)  


So this card was used by covering the base card with gold glittery card from Websters page - All that Glitters collection which I mounted onto red mirri card. The greeting is also from the same collection. I added a little ribbon and also a glittery peel off that I shaped with to be a banner.

I covered Pheobe's dress with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen as every girl needs some shimmer at Christmas right?!

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour Pheobe -
Skin - Usual
Photocopier -  Warm Greys
Dress - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Hair -  Raw sienns, Cocoa, Chestnut & Henna
Glass- Cardinal red & Cloud blue.

Hope you all get to be a little bit naughty this festive season!!

I used paped from Lawn Fawn Perfectly plaid Christmas pad. I die cut the image using a My Favourite things Die and mounted it on kraft card. The little greeting tabs are sticker from Pink Fresh Oh Joy collection and I mounted these on gold mirri. I also used gold pen on the image and the wooden present to tie it all together. The die cut branches I have had for ages and can't remember where they were from. The little flower was from Hobbycraft.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Usual combo with baby pink cheeks and nose
Trousers - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Powder blue shading on his shirt.
Boots - Cool greys and black
Braces - Raw Sienna
Cuffs - Linen & Tan
