Sister Act Card Challenge #2 - Doodle Garden

Superhero Stanley - The Doodle Garden digi image
This week's sponsor over at the Sister Act Card Challenge blog is a wonderful company called The Doodle Garden.   I am in love with Jennifer Nilsson's images.  This little guy is a digi image called Superhero Stanley.   I have discovered a new benefit about digi images - you can make them as large or as small as you want.  Originally I thought this one was too big and planned to use him to practice coloring, but when I got out my alphabet die - he was the perfect size!  The blue polka dot background is actually a card set I bought years ago in the dollar bin at Michael's and haven't touched.  It's bold and the perfect backdrop for this super-sized superhero!  The three red dots are glitter dots and the red polka dot flags are washi tape.

See the "e" on my superhero's chest?  That's for my favorite superhero . . . my grandson Ellis!  He just had his 4th birthday and is crazy about his collection of superhero t-shirts! (The digi image has a star on his chest which I colored right over.)

Copics used:
Skin - E 000, 00, 11, R20
Hair - Y11, Y21, E55, E13
Cape - R20, 24, 29 with a touch of 59
Superhero onesie - *B24, 34, 37 and a touch of 39

*I needed to use some blending with the blues because my colors were too much of a jump, so I put the B37 on a CD cover and picked it up with the B34.  I did the same thing with the B34 and the B24.

This is printed on Georgia Pacific cardstock (from Walmart), so I had to color quickly and work from the darkest colors to the light colors.

There are more fun Doodle Garden images from the DT members.  I hope you'll take a look, and then play along with us this week.

This card uses lots of sticky stuff including washi tape, pop dots and glitter dots, so I entering him in the Use It Tuesday challenge.
The Digital Tuesday Challenge theme is "boys"; Great Impressions Monthly Challenge for April is "polka dots or pastels" so I linked him up in their challenges as well.
He's also going in Bugaboo Stamps Blog  and Through the Craftroom Door "Anything Goes" challenge this week.
