Color Inspirations – Summer Sunrise

Try out this warm and glowing Summer Sunrise color scheme on your embroidery designs.

Even though we were all about summer last week… well, we just don’t get enough of it around here in Minnesota. So I figured we might as well stay full into warm month celebrations with this Summer Sunrise color scheme. It’s warm colors all the way, mixing soft glowing pinks in with rusty oranges and reds. Pick a pink or an orange with a lot of saturation to let your design really shine with warmth. For an extra summery flair, stitch it on a bohemian tie dye fabric of similar colors. You could even dye the fabric yourself! See how it compares to the original.
