Have you considered using yellow, purple, and orange in your next stitching project? They’re a fantastic colour combination featured in previous projects on our blog!
One of the great things about these colours is their high contrast. They make a design pop and create a dynamic effect. Picture the warm orange and cool purple against a bright yellow background – it’s sure to catch the eye!
The best part is that you can use these colours in various ways, depending on what kind of project you’re working on. Want a bold graphic design? These colours are perfect for that. Prefer something more subtle and muted? They work for that too! You can use them equally or focus on one as the dominant colour with the others as accents.
And the best part? These colours are available in three sizes of perle cotton and 6 strand cotton floss, so you can easily find your preferred size for your stitching project.
This month’s feature colour is Colour #69 (red violet/purple). You may have seen this pattern featured in an older blog post but we felt it showcased colour #69 beautifully. The design and red violet/purple combination emphasizes the star’s shape and frames the sample by simply laying one thread and cross-stitching over this with a metallic. This needlepoint sample is stitched on 18 count mono canvas measuring less than 3 inches. The pattern is a small section of St. Margaret’s Star designed by Carole Lake & Michael Boren.
So why not give this colour palette a try? We’re sure you’ll love the results!
