Mary Engelbreit Thank you
Do you ever have a stamp that you just love the image but have a hard time finding in your "stash" just the right elements to put a card together? This was my problem with this darling Mary Engelbreit stamp.
I stamped a bunch of these Mary Engelbreit thank you images last weekend but didn't have the chance to color them and make cards until this morning. Then I realized that I didn't have the bright primary colored patterned paper in my supplies. I made a realization that I tend to stockpile muted colors and vintage papers. But Mary Engelbreit NEEDS bright primary colors. Whats a gal to do? I decided I'd use this Daisy D's paper and hope for the best and this is what I came up with.
The Mary Engelbreit stamp is made by All Night Media. I colored her with my prismacolor pencils and mounted the image on scraps from my stash of black and yellow cardstock. Next I layered Daisy D's Vintage Blossoms patterned paper on a black mat and mounted them on a bright yellow card base. Next I added the gingham bow and yellow prima flowers and mounted the Mary Engelbreit image on foam squares.
