Okay, it's no secret that I love Diamond Dust. And so do a lot of the ladies over at Swirlydoos. Expressing this love, Krissy put some in the Shabby Ambition Kit. So, I thought I do a quick little tutorial on how to dye the stuff.

This is what you'll need:
Diamond Dust
plastic spoon
tray (something that you won't mind scratching up)
Alcohol ink

Step 1:
Depending on how much of one color you want, spoon Diamond Dust into a resealable baggie. I used a whopping spoonful.

Step 2:
Add a least 2 -3 drops of Alcohol Ink( more for a larger batch) . I used Shell for Pink.

Step 3:
Close the baggie. Shake, rub, roll and squeeze. You know, mix it all together!!

Step 4:
Once the Diamond Dust is colored dump the contents on your tray. It may look a bit clumpy.

Step 5:
Now with your spoon rub and push to get the ink to dry and get rid of the clumps. If you like it clumpy skip this step.

See, back to it's fine shards. Pour it back into your baggie and use anytime needed!!

You can do this with any of the colors!!! Here is Copper....

and silver.

Here is a butterfly that I made with the pink Diamond Dust. Pretty huh??

Be sure to stop by the Swirlydoos Gallery Shabby Ambition Album to get some inspiration with pages using Diamond Dust.
