Sailing By Silhouette

Welcome back for another Digi Makeover Challenge by Paper Makeup Stamps!  This week we are re-sizing our digi stamps from the very [BIG] to the very [small] and we hope you'll play along.  {wink}

I made this card with a particular friend in mind.  She's strong in her faith and loves to spend time sailing at the lake.  Earlier this year she had a masectomy and now she's just found out that she needs to have another one on the other side.  It's hard to process, but at the same time she's counting her blessings and not dwelling on the negative.  I just want to give her some encouragement as she prepares for her next surgery and recovery. 

I started by filling in the sailboat image from Sailing By with a light gray color to create a silhouette.  Then I colored a few of the words blue from the Sometimes God Calms word art and placed it over the sailboat image.  I chose to size and print my images large.  I wanted the words and sailboat to be the focus of my card.  Sometimes, simple is best. 

Be sure to check out all the re-sized creations by my fellow Digi Makeup Artists.  They came up with some really clever ideas and you can find the links to their blogs in my sidebar.

I love how well this image and sentiment go together. Very simple and so striking!!
