Quite Like You for April AEI♥U and Simon Says Stamp Challenge



Last month I took the Avery Elle inspiration photo very literally.  This month, not so much.

I was inspired by the colors and overlapping lanterns.  Since I don't have a round Avery Elle stamp, I pulled out the Rounded Diamonds set and used two of the teardrop sizes.  The whole group of them kind of reminds me of hot air balloons.


I must have had generational stamping on the brain after my Friday post because the whole thing (except for the sentiment) is done in second generation.  I like how the overlapping layers of color are really shown off when you stamp in second generation.

I'm also going to link this up over at Simon Says Stamp since it's Anything Goes week.

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - White Daisy, Goldrush, and Slate cardstock
Stamps:  Avery Elle - Rounded Diamonds; WPlus9 - Quite Like You
Ink:  CTMH - Creme Brulee, Goldrush, Sorbet, Hollyhock; Holiday Red; Garden Green; Slate, and Black
Other:  Tombow - Mono Adhesive
