Yes, it’s all about black today.
Have you stitched on a black background?
Earlier last year I supplied my stitch group with a selection of colours celebrating spring and summer so they have been quite busy coming up with various colour combinations. I always look forward to seeing how they choose to combine colours.
Just a Wee Project is designed by Freda Murfin.
It is available at Freda’s Fancy Stitching.
The sample measures 4 inches square and is stitched on black 18 count mono canvas. This is the first time any of the group have used a black background so we were all curious to see how this sample turned out. I love it and feel it showcases the colours well. I think it would look fantastic with the addition of either a metallic thread or beads for some “bling”.
Susan has used the following colours of size 5 perle cotton for this sample
- Colour Complements Colour #138
- Colour Complements Colour #41
- Colour Complements Colour #184
- DMC Colour 3689
Thank you Susan. Love the black!
In the coming months I will be sharing more stitch samples. Hopefully these will inspire you to stitch with COLOUR!
Remember, you can always play with lots of different colour combinations.
