Polka Doodles Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone, all being well this will have posted while I'm on my hols in Slovenia. As it's Friday, it's time for the next Polka Doodles challenge and this week there is a sketch to inspire you.
I decided to make a new home card and resized and printed out the cute house scene from the Housey Housey section of the Back to Nature CD on to watercolour paper. I then coloured it with my watercolour pencils.

I put this on a contrast mat of blue paper and then a larger mat of paper from the Not So Plain Plains section of the Not For Girls CD. I added faux stitching with a black fine liner to echo the sketch. I used background paper from the All Around and Everywhere CD and added flowers from the Sugar Birdies CD. 
As you can see, all the CDs mix and match beautifully giving you even more options for your projects.

Don't forget the big competition on the challenge blog and do have a go if you haven't already as all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of the fab prizes is to show us your colouring skills. How easy is that! Why not pop over and have a look. There's also a new video tutorial which Nikky has done for you and I'm sure there are loads of good tips.
