Today I made a card with this uber cute dino from Lawn fawn. I created the background with a home made “embossing paste”. I made it with plaster and colour pigment. I haven’t tried this out before, but I think it turned out really nice! I used this instead of regular embossing paste cause I wanted more structure to the sand. I made a video of the process, take a look if you would like to know more. If you like the video and want to see more, don’t forget to subscribe to my youtube channel.

Wow, this is amazing! I love the look of the footprints in the “sand”. and the dinosaur coloring is fabulous (doesn’t look like a beginner copic to me :-). I’m going to follow you on youtube right now! thanks for sharing! I love lawn fawn and this just made my day!
oops forgot to ask..does that compound you used make the card heavy?
Hi Carrie! I’m so happy you liked it and left me such a sweet comment! I spread the paste on fairly thin so it’s not heavy at all. 🙂
At first glance I thought you used a photograph as your background! Amazing idea and brilliant execution!

Congrats on your win…so well deserved! This card is awesome. What liquid glue did you use?
