Polkadoodles birthday fun continues

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.

So today I am sharing a creation using an image scratched up by one of my teamies, I'm not sure who it is, but I love the image they scratched together. Keep an eye out on facebook for their make with the same image and check out their blog for a special code you can use in the shop.

The image I have used is a combination of:

and  the beautiful princess carriage and show from  Work and Play 9

 So using this image, I decided to make a canvas to hang on the wall:

I coloured the image with Copics and the colours I used are: skin:  E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, W1, eyes: YG67, YG63, YG61,  hair: E49, E47, E44, E43, E42,  clothes: W00, W1, W3, W5, mice: C00, C0, C1, C2, R00, R20  mice clothes: Y26, Y23, Y21, W5, W3, W1 carriage: Y28, Y26, Y23, Y21, Y02, E25, E23, E21, R24, R22, R21, R20, R39, R37, R35, YG61, YG63, YG67, C3, C1, C0, stool, broom: E44, E43, E47, E41, shoe: B06, B04, B02, B00
