Custom Coloured embossing paste

Created custom coloured embossing paste!

If you love to use embossing paste with your stencils, then you’ll also love to create your own custom coloured paste to use. It is so simple to create custom coloured embossing paste and even if you don’t have a lot of colours you can still create with this technique. I used some re-inkers to colour my paste – just as it was the easiest way, but you can easily use your ink pads, watercolours, sprays etc. 

I’ve combined the paste with the beautiful In The Jungle stencil from Catherine Pooler Designs. The design just takes center stage and all it needs is a simple sentiment to finish it off!

Custom Coloured embossing paste!

Custom Coloured embossing paste: mixing your paste

Start off by temporarily adhering the In The Jungle stencil over a white piece of cardstock. I find the Make Art Stay-tion is perfect for keeping the stencil still and in place whilst you work as the magnetics stop it from moving.

Next, with a spatula, add a small amount of Altenew embossing paste onto a non-porous surface. To add colour, add one drop of It’s A Girl Re-inker from Catherine Pooler or smoosh the ink pad down next to the paste. Use your spatula to mix the colour into the ink.

Next, apply the coloured paste through the stencil at one end. Next, mix a drop of Party Dress re-inker into the paste –  you may need to add a little more paste. Again apply this over the stencil and blend into the previous colour. 

Custom Coloured embossing paste: adding some sparkle

Repeat colouring the paste one more time with Cranberry Fizz Reinker and add to the last top half of the stencilled design. Remove the stencil and ensure you clean this well. 

Before you allow this to dry, cover with Halo Embossing glitter. Only heat the powder after the paste is dry to prevent the paste from bubbling. Adhere the panel to a white card base.

Add a layered die-cut Catherine Pooler Thanks word die to the front that has been coloured with Cranberry Fizz ink using the direct to paper method. Finish with a sentiment from the Ladies Who Lunch stamp set and a few sequins from the Flamenco Beach sequin mix
