a background technique with tissue paper . first cut a tag and cover with gesso. cut a piece of tissue paper about twice the size of tag, stamp with Versafine black ink. cover tag with glue. wrinkle tissue. press stamped tissue on tag and added more glue on top, pressing on the folds. To get a better finish, don't cut the extra tissue but use a sanding block instead.
