Now that the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 catalogue has been live for a couple of months, have you picked a favourite new In-Colour?  Initially, I felt they were quite vintage in nature, but the more I use them, the more I realise that they are really quite timeless and all work beautifully with our core colours.

Because of that, I couldn't just pick one or two as a focus for my project.  I had to use them all!
I masked off the edges of a piece of water colour paper before using a wide paint brush to apply a striped wash of each colour.  I went from right to left and let the colour fade out as I dragged it across the paper.

My stripes are the hero of the card, so I kept the sentiment simple and used the great combination of the Well Said stamp set with the Well Written dies.  I have a couple of beautiful friends going through some pretty tough times at the moment and this card is dedicated to both of them ♥

I finished off the project with the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment as each sequin matches the ink colours perfectly!

Now we are off to see what Jeanna has in store for us.  I wonder what her In Colour picks will be?!
If you want the supplies to recreate my project, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.  Click on the pictures below to shop my New Zealand store 24/7!
