While playing around with the Kraft Glassine from Tim Holtz, I decided I wanted it a little bit lighter and a bit textured, and maybe not so grunge-y. So I decided to layer some plain white tissue paper on top. I used Gel Medium to adhere the tissue paper to the Kraft Glassine, allowing the tissue paper to wrinkle a bit.
I let the background dry and then used the Tim Holtz Distress Stains by Ranger to color the tissue paper, wiping some of it off to give it a more mottled appearance. And here is the result:
I really liked the look and used it in a card with the Grunge Mirror Rubber Stamp here: http://www.easyscraps.com/blog/blogu.php/grunge-mirror-rubber-stamp-on-kraft-glassine.
