Heart Colored Embossing Paste ~ PTI#176

Yesterday I was checking out a video on the Papertrey Ink blog and it so inspired me that I had to go down to the craft room and play with some embossing paste, ink and homemade cardstock stencils.

To create my own stencil I used my new Heart Border punch from Stampin' UP! and punched a row of hearts.   I adhered them the way Laura shows in her video.  Unfortunately the washi tape I used to adhere my "stencil" down ended up tearing my paper.  My plan was to make it more of a one layer card.  Happy accident though because I cut it down and added a strip of Lavender cardstock.  I might like this a little better than my original idea.  ;)

As I was playing with mixing colors I found that I had used WAY TOO MUCH embossing paste for the teeny tiny hearts.  I just couldn't throw all that scrumptiously colored paste away so I quickly grabbed another die cut that was laying on my messy desk and put it on a separate piece of white cardstock.  Now I have the beginnings of a brand new card.  Come back later in the week to see what I do with it.  Any suggestions?

Be sure to check out the link below for the video and challenge.
