~Di-solvable ART~ by Josie~ Challenge and Call for ARtistS

Josie says:
Okay, This is what I did. I found some stamps that had good detail. I then mixed white craft glue and water. The ratio is about 2/3 water to 1/3 glue. Stir this well. Lay a piece of toilet paper.(yes I said toilet paper) over the stamp. I used 2 ply for those inquisitive minds that need to know. I took a soft brush, dipped into the solution and gently brushed over the stamp. You will see the design show up. I let this dry for about 15 to 20 minutes and applied another layer. I did up to 3 to 4 layers. With each layer you will see less of the detail, but do not despair. I then let it dry over night. Gently peel the paper from the stamp. I then roughly cut around the image. I will cut closer to the image when I have the item finished. These will look like white fossils, something like I do.

Lets get to it!!!!!
