As this anniversary is normally called the "7 year itch", the Polka Doodles team have embraced the prickly feeling by scratching that itch and mixing/scratching up some new images ... get the pun? Corny we know but the team have had great fun. So to embrace the “itchy scratch” the Polka Doodles team have thrown caution to the wind and “scratched up” a different kind of birthday celebration.
The birthday celebrations will be running for 2 weeks and each day someone from the Polka Doodles team will be sharing their “mixed/scratched up” image. It’s been all hush hush and secret squirrel too as no one knows who has been busy creating what and when they will be revealing their image... so the Polka Doodles team get to join in the fun too. To add an extra layer of itchy fun, everyone has also been colouring up the new “scratched/mixed up” images, (still not knowing who designed them) and they will be sharing via their blogs and on Facebook.
We really have scratched things up ... new merged images, no one knows who created what and no one knows when they’ll be sharing them ...!
Please do take the opportunity to visit the Polka Doodles team and see their new digi images because you will find a discount code (or two) along your way that you can use in the Polka Doodles shop.
I went to town a bit on this one, as I wanted to create a beautiful 'Fairy Garden' scene. I used images from several collections:-
Here is the finished result
She has been coloured with a few different mediums - Copics, Graph-Its, Lyras, Gold & White Gel Pens and Copper Stickles. I had an accident right at the end colouring her hair, with a huge green blob, but a bit of patience and the magic of a Copic blender pen, seem to have masked it very well - phew.
Finally I did't want to just make a card, so I used a shadow box frame to display my Fairy Garden and added a sentiment from the Silhouette store, cut in black vinyl.
I hope you like my mix up, I know I enjoyed creating and colouring it.
So pop over to our Facebook page to join in the birthday fun and see all the fabulous projects created by the DT and enjoy the rest of the celebrations.
