Toilet Paper Casting

This card is made of patterned cardstock and tissue paper, but the center flower is 10 layers of toilet paper. You begin with a rubber stamp and alternate one layer of toilet paper with a watered down all-purpose glue ( about 2-3 parts glue to 1 part water) . Use a stiff bristled brush to tamper each layer into the crevices of the stamp. When all layers are applied, use an absorbant towel and press down on the whole thing to remove excess moisture. Carefully peel the cast off and put in a 200 degree oven on a cookie sheet for a few minutes until it's dry or let it air dry. ( I get too impatient to do this) I colored this one with Perfect Pearls and chalks. Trim the cast to fit your project.
