Dino in the desert with background created by homemade “embossing paste” + Video


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.

Take care!

      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. :-)

      Thank you! I used a basic liquid glue from my local craftstore, Panduro Hobby. I think any liquid glue would work fine!
