Default Help! Overheated White Embossing Powder

I slightly overheated some white embossing powder on a card I was making. The image is that of a dove and the slightly yellow tinge on part of it is really bothering me.

Anyone have any ideas on how to remove that slightly yellow tinge?

Can you ink the image again and emboss it? Or if not possible to redo entire image, can you take a brush, press it into the embossing ink and just emboss that part?

Is it the powder or the paper that has changed colour? Just asking because while I occasionally scorch the card, I usually find overheated powder melts into it but stays white. I've never found an answer to scorched paper other than colouring it.

I would reheat the image and sprinkle more powder over just the discolored section, heat the additional powder as usual.

Maybe a white gel pen or paint pen would help.

Thank you all so much for your suggestions!

I used a Zig Emboss marker over the discolored portion and then covered it with embossing powder, which I then reheated. And it worked!! Yay!!!

Thank you all again. And Merry Christmas!
