Tissue Collage

Today's Ways To Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers ...GRAB A use tissue paper.  Remember making projects like this as a kid....tearing up pieces of tissue....and painting over it with glue? This is like that without the glue and instead dry embossing it. 

I cut out my panel and ran my ATC gun along the outside edge and in small grid lines to cover it almost completely.  Then I tore small pieces of tissue paper and pushed it down....leaving no white space. Then I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black then ran it through my Cuttlebug using the CB Houndstooth Embossing Folder. Simple. I'd like to try this with other color combinations. 

My sentiment is from the stamp set CHATTERBOX by THE ALLEY WAY STAMPS.
