Colored Modeling Paste

Hi! How's everyone's weekend going! Mine is pretty great! I got some papercrafting in, and just some relaxing, reading a Captain America comic stuff like that. :) And I just had to create something for the current Papertrey Ink Make It Monday...because it involved fun messiness and because the amazingly super talented Laura Bassen did it. :) 
So, the challenge was to do something with colored embossing paste...and here's my take on it: 

I used Laura's idea of making a stencil from a cover plate, which was fun! (I don't own any embossing paste so I used modeling paste.) 

I think I only own one reinker at the moment...usually I just buy new ink pads instead of reinking my old ones when they get dry. Hehe. So I colored my embossing paste by smashing ink pads onto a craft sheet and using that along with some food coloring and spray mists all together, until I got what I thought worked. Then I stenciled all the triangles, peeled of the stencil and let it dry. When I was ready to make the card I trimmed the panel down. 

I added some sun ray die cuts and a sentiment, adhered it all together, added a sentiment and ta-da! There was the finished card! :) I'm quite happy with it! 

So I hope you have a great rest of your weekend...I'll be back soon! 

Jesus saves!
