Today's teapot recipient is our own Cheryl (cherylquilts) and we her "tribe" are asked to send good vibes as she struggles with ongoing health problems.
The Tribe here in El Paso is the Tiguas (pronounced teewah). They are farmers & artisans which brings to mind pottery, copper & turquoise. I stamped my kokopelli and embossed with classy copper and framed with metallic black. I stamped & embossed both the feathers and Indian pot on a scrap from my stash box. Finally, I stamped the feather randomly over the card base and embossed with clear powder for a tone on tone bg. Computer generated my sentiment and layered it all together.

Your sentiment is wonderful...very clever. Love the card and the colors you chose are so evocative of the Indians of the Southwest. I especially love the coloring on the feathers and pot. Great design and a happy, fun card for Cheryl.

I love the feathery blue background and the kokopelli dancing across the card. The colorful feathers are great. They remind me of a book we had as chdren, Piruwayu and the Rainbow, about a young native Indian boy seeing a rainbow and setting out to collect a feather in each colour. I like the way the pot is stamped on the same background.
