Happy 7th birthday Polka Doodles.
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
Oh, I don't know who has scratched together this mix of Serenity Blossom mixed up with the toadstools from Lilybug Love but it's just perfect for me and I had a right good time colouring it up with my Graph It Markers. You can buy the scratched up digi from the Polka Doodles shop right now by going HERE but the individual digis can be found HERE for the Serenity Blossom digi on her own or on a full collection download right HERE and the Lilybug Love collection can be purchased right HERE where you can find the toadstools that have merged with Serenity Blossom. I've mixed the cloud paper from the Octavia Moonfly Collection available HERE together with papers from the Serenity Collection. The sentiments are from the Work & Play Feel The Music collection available HERE. A proper total mash-up and one that works absolutely perfectly.
I've made a very large card using a 12x12 inch card stock and used two shades of purple card for the matting and layering with touches of ink from a Memento Ink Dewdrop pad called Lulu Lavender for the distressed edges I've made using scissors.
I've added some toadstools I bought from a charity shop and some moss from my stash to embellish the design.
The digis have been coloured using my GRAPH IT pens as follows:
Skin - 4115, 4145, 4155, 4170, 6150
Hair - 6110, 6130, 6185, 7185, 6170
Lips - 5245
Clothing - 7115, 7130, 7150
Grass - 8160, 8140, 8250
Toadstools - 5260, 5245, 9203, 9205, 4115
Flowers & Leaves - 1250, 1180, 8160, 8250
White Gelly Roll for the dots on the hair
Ice Stickles (Crystal Ice) for the wings and spots on the toadstools.
Here she is....

I can't wait to see which member of the team has made this mash-up and if you pop along to their blog you might be in for a little bit of a treat!! Keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook pages throughout the day to see who else has coloured this digi.
Take care
