Mix Ins for Modeling Paste

Hi!  It's Friday!!  Hope you are ready for the weekend- I am!  I just found out that I'll be making a card for the next round of Gallery Idol!!  :)  I'm so excited I made it through to the next round!!  And funny enough- my cards today would be perfect for the next challenge- stencils!!  I'm happy with the category, now to create something fun with them!!

I have a couple of cards I created this week for the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog to share with you today.  These were so fun to create!  I did a little experimenting with the Basically Essential Modeling Paste before I got started, testing out mix ins!  This first one features some beautiful gold glitter:

I scooped a little paste out and mixed in some of this awesome glitter by Stampendous.  It created an awesome texture but you couldn't see the sparkle very well.  To fix this, I sprinkled more glitter over the top of the paste after I spread it onto the star stencil.  The glitter sticks so well and I love the dimension it adds to the paste!  Here is a closer look:

This second card features the paste mixed with paint.  I used 2 drops of coral paint to get this look.  The color stays pretty vivid!  It was fun to play with:

I spread it over the hearts stencil in a messy fashion.  Sometimes a perfect mess is just what a card calls for!  And you don't have to worry about mistakes either! :)

As far as the embellishments go, I kept it simple to let the artsy elements shine through.  I used the photo overlays from the Something Wonderful collection for my sentiments and embellished with some gold twine from the Twinery along with gold star sequins and washi tapes from the Something Wonderful collection.  These were a little tricky to photograph because of the transparent overlays...

Well, I hope you have a great weekend!  I'll be pulling out my stencils again-- I can't wait!!

Thanks for popping by today!
