Winter Blues


The Digi Makeover Challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps is to use shades of BLUE with your digi image on your creation this week!  To play along, Read about it and Link up at the PMS Blog!

My hand is still healing from last week's injury, so I have a clean and simple card for you today!  And I am even more thankful for digi images that are easy to manipulate one-handed on the computer!  {lol}

I've used Baby Jamie Fairy Silhouette on my card with the word art A New Baby.  Notice anything?  Baby Jamie is missing his fairy wings!  While I enjoy many fairy images, not all my friends do.  It's super easy to open up the digi image in Paint and erase those wings - just like you could omit part of a rubber stamp image by using marker on just the sections you want to show. 

I then used Paint.Net to change my silhouette from black to light blue, as well as vary the words in the quote with medium and dark blues.  I sized them both large and overlapped the words on the silhoutte a bit to help them be a big focal point on my card.  The sketch is a simplified version of  The Deconstructed Sketch #35.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today - it's always appreciated!  {grin}
