MIM: Generational Stamping

We've been having a hard time with plates lately. My favorite blue plates have been breaking like crazy. The white plates that I bought to replace them get super duper hot in the microwave while the food on them stays cold. Grrr.

I figure if I have to keep buying plates, I'm going to get colors that I like. No more matchy-matchy! Plus, I heard a sneaky rumor that Corel plates are hard to break, so when I saw these at Target, I bought a couple. All in the name of science, of course.

Red is my current favorite color, and the Pure Poppy ink from Papertrey Ink is the only one I've found that is vivid enough for me. I took a couple of pencils and tried this week's Make It Monday Generational stamping technique to get this:

Papertrey Ink cardstock, ink, and sentiment
My kids' pencil erasers
Stampin' Up and Memento inks
Paper studio pearls
Zig pen
