This is a 3.5 x 8 piece of plywood that I crackled and added a tree and a poem printed on tissue paper. I then laid a coat of decoupage on the surface where the tree and poem would go, gently laid the images on the decoupage and stippled with a small brush dipped in decoupage. My decoupage solution is half and half elmers glue and water. Added distressing with inks and a picture of french children. Glue the tissue to a piece of cardstock with a good glue stick , leave a 1 inch margin around the tissue. Make sure the tissue is stuck otherwise the printer will grab it instead of the cardstock. Let me know if you try it. Very nice see thru image.
You can also press it on freezer paper with an iron and run it thru, but you have to be very careful when you remove it from the FP, easy to rip. Just another option.
