TCP Tuesday Challenge - TCPTUES54 / Mojo Monday 82 Sketch

This week's TCP Tuesday challenge, hosted by the very creative Susan Liles, is a stamp challenge. Susan wants us to ink up TCP Having a Pow Wow images.

As soon as I thought about using these stamps, I thought about using Squaw Sprinkle with a baby in her basket. This card is for my friend Lucia who had a baby in November and as expected, has had many many changes to her life - all a blessing, but a challenge. The sentiment "HOW" is just too perfect - I am asking her how she is doing, how things are going, how she is juggling baby, work, and everything else, and letting her know how much we think she is doing an amazing job!!! :)

I used H20 water colors to go over the image to try to give it a dreamy look, love the shimmer it gives as well. I left the "HOW" sentiment nice and bold so it popped out from all the other colors. The DCWV PP was sitting on my desk from a previous project and it looked very southwestern to me... so I went with it.

I needed a sketch idea so I turned to Mojo Monday Sketch 82 , as you can see simple yet affective :). Really like their sketches; and I like participating when possible.

Thank you Tracy, really appreciate you enabling this card! I had a really good time playing with these stamps, surprised me as well!!!
