After creating your custom finish, you will need to set it as a valid option for each Frame Item (listed in the below image). To do this, select and click Edit to open the Valid Finish Selector for each item.

Once this is open, finish in the list and click in the right hand column to set it as a valid colour (after clicking, a Tick will appear in the box next to the finish – illustrated below).
