Looking to add a touch of elegance to your next needlepoint project? Consider incorporating Colour #69 – a beautiful purple combination rich in a blend of red, violet and purples.
I personally love the use of purple in any project that I do. This rich and regal hue can add depth and dimension to your work, whether creating a pillow, wall hanging, or any other type of needlepoint piece.
I also love how versatile this colour is; as mentioned above, it can be used in various ways. For a bold and striking look, consider using this beautiful colour combination as your base colour. You can then create an accent colour palette using lighter shades of lavender or lilac. This will create a contrast that is both beautiful and eye-catching!
If you prefer a more subtle approach, you can use lighter values of purple as your base colour and then incorporate Colour #69 as accents. Doing this will create a more understated look that is still sophisticated and stylish.
You can also use Colour #69 for projects requiring a contrasting colour palette. It looks stunning when paired with emerald green or sapphire blue – jewel tones that are neither muted nor loud.
Another great thing about this particular colour blend is that you can also look at using a variety of textures and finishes to add even more interest and dimension. A shiny metallic thread for your accents or a matte cotton thread for your base colour are great options to create that depth you may not achieve when using threads with the same “finish.”
Overall, Colour #69 is a beautiful and versatile colour that can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any needlepoint project. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, experimenting with different shades and textures of purple/red violets can help take your work to the next level. Don’t be afraid to play around with this colour in your next project and let me know how you do!
