FabFri44 --- A Challenge to use ALL the new In-Colors (A Fab Four pick)

I've done this before and embrace the chance to do it again.  What, you ask?  I'm going to love using all five new In-Colors together in my card.  They work so well together this year and this challenge simply gives me another opportunity to see what else can be done with them all in one card.


I don't know if you noticed those amazing Decorative Masks on page 205 of the new catalogue.  I got the Hearts and Stars and the Stars Decorative Mask is the one that I am using for this card.  I love stars and I love rainbows.  What could be better than a rainbow of stars?

I picked the portion of the Decorative Mask that appealed to me and used some retired Washi Tape to keep the Whisper White cardstock in place while I daubed the ink colours.  The beauty of using Washi Tape is that it comes off without ruining the paper.  That's definitely a plus!

I loved the effect and didn't want to take away from the rainbow of stars so I decided to use my new Stars Framelits to make my focal object and sentiment.  It worked out perfectly!  For my base cardstock I used the Blackberry Bliss, followed by a layer of Gold Foil and then my star-filled Whisper White.  In the rather sparse area I mounted my star on dimensionals.  The star wound up being a frame of Gold Foil over a star of Blackberry Bliss on which I had heat-embossed "Yippee-Skippee" in gold embossing powder.


And that is the card.  For more ideas of how to use all five colours, check out the Fab Friday Challenge Blog.

    1. Thank you, Brian. I only got the decorative masks because they were a cheap investment but now I'm very happy I ordered them. I'm thinking of getting a few more so that people won't have to wait too long to use them at parties.
