Add embellishments and then add Dimensional Magic. Use THREE layers. Do one layer and allow it to dry in a warm place (to prevent cracking). Then a second layer and allow it to dry again. THEN a third layer and add the scrapbooking brad embellishments so that they would be “dimensional” on the top of the Dimensional Magic.
