Dream in one color

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge was to use only 1 color cardstock besides white. I chose to use watercolor paper and apply Tim Holtz Distress/Peeled Paint directly to the paper and mist it with water. (see photo below) When it dried, I stamped the images using peeled paint ink and then layered it on Old Olive CS. The black along the top and left is a faux layer using a Copic Marker. I also used the black copic marker to color the back of the Leonardo tin types letters as they were clear. Images are all available from Rubbernecker Stamp co. The Tin Types are by Stanislaus Imports and are also available from Rubbernecker. The background is item # 261-3, Face 260-5 & Drafting Compass 261-2. Any embellishments were allowed, so in addition to the tin types I added grosgrain ribbon and sq. brads to the opposite corners.


  1. I really like this...escpecially the letters for Dream, and the "hindges" coming from the top and bottom. Joan

  2. Totally cool card, Shelly! I love that peeled paint color and the Leonardo stamp is awesome!

  4. Shelly, I just love the way you have turned this watercolor paper into a creation of its own! Way to go!
