Glitzy Thanks

Turn your shimmery white embossing paste into any color you need. Simply add a few drops of re-inker and blend it with a palette knife. You do have to work quickly because the embossing paste dries fast. These two cards are my first attempt at dyeing the embossing paste and applying it to a card front. What do you think?

   Embossing Paste

   Shimmery White Embossing Paste
   Basic Pattern Decorative Masks
   Thick Iridescent Glitter

First, I placed three small heaps of embossing paste on a clear block using a palette knife.

I then added two or three drops of re-inker to a heap.

I mixed them using a palette knife. It reminded me of mixing color into frosting.

I then picked up a bit and scraped it onto my mask/stencil with the white cardstock under it. 

Do clean off the knife between colors, or use different knives for each of the colors. I had never used the embossing paste, so I mixed too much. This is the reason I made two cards. A little goes a long way.

Next, I added some glitter while the paste was still a bit wet. I think I added too much because I am still picking up pieces that fall off every time I move it. I may omit the glitter the next time.

I then stamped on a left-over Paper Pumpkin tag to use on one of the cards. The other card had room at the top to stamp my sentiment directly on the card front. 

Once, the card front was dry, I adhered the layers together. The other basic white panel was adhered to the inside of the card.
