toilet paper thanks

You wouldn't have guessed it would you??!! I wanted a soft-looking paper behind my delicate butterfly and I also wanted only blues and whites for this spring-like card. Sitting on my craft table was a roll of Charmin!!!! (Dunno how it got there!!!) Anyway, I figured "YES!!" Somewhere through the years I'd heard of using it for a background, but had long forgotten. I tried embossing it dry but that didn't work for me as I wanted a tattered look. Besides the dry layers just separated. So I gently spritzed it with my Stampin Misters and lo and behold it WORKED!!! And it tore just BEAUTIFULLY!!!
Next time I want to put a drop of color into my mister. Wouldn't THAT look fantastic???
