I recently heard of a new technique on Karen Hasheck's blog here, using, of all things, toilet paper.
It reminded me of a technique that was around some years ago using layered toilet or tissue paper and watered down glue, and then stamping into it.
After trying the technique, I came to the conclusion that American tp is 'different' to New Zealand tp. Karen said she used 12 layers of single layer tp - I separated 2-ply paper into single layers and followed her instructions, but got a smooth surface on both the samples I tried.
The method is to ink up an embossing folder with distress or dye ink, layer up the tp, spray both sides with water and then close into the folder and emboss as usual. I love the results, despite the fact it is not identical to Karen's results.
Once the embossed panel was dry, I wrapped a ribbon around the top and added the sentiment tag and gold butterfly, then mounted it over pale lemon dp, and then onto the base. Be warned, mounting the panel can be awkward as you have to be careful not to separate the layers... I speak from experience.
