In Color Sampler

The new Stampin' Up! In Color cardstock has been in my possession for at least 2 weeks and gone uncut!  Shameful!  I've been wanting to use the new In Colors on a card.  This week's Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge was PERFECT!  I could never have come up with a better layout for using all 5 of the papers.

Since I've only bought one of the inks so far, I used Versamark to do the tone-on-tone polka dots.  Another challenge was this week's Ways to Use It for altering ribbon.  I stamped some twill tape with lots of small images in colors very close to the In Colors.  Here are the ones I found in my collection that went really well with the In Colors:

Pool Party - Aqua Mist by Papertrey Ink
Calypso Coral - Tangerine Tango  by SU!
Lucky Limeade - Kiwi Kiss by SU!

I used Prussian Blue from Colorbox as my sub for the Island Indigo but it is pretty dark and I did buy the Wisteria color ink so I used it.  It's really nice now that In Colors are around for 2 years rather than just one.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for visiting!
