Scratch that itch with Polka Doodles ...

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 ...!

Now it's my turn to scratch up an image and I have turned to the "Cool Tweets" from Not for Girls collection and added him to a selection of digi images from Work and Play 8 "Feel the Music" collection ...

I have coloured the image with my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils and am pleased with how the scratched up image has come together.

The backing paper is also from Work and Play 8, as is the sentiment. Musical themed diecuts are from Tonic cut in complimentary coloured card. I have really tried to keep the card all about the image and fingers crossed, think I have managed that!
