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.

Color Inspirations – Berry & Blue

Try this unexpected Berry & Blue color scheme out on your embroidery designs.

Want an easy color scheme? Try a mostly monochromatic palette with a pop of contrasting color. Watery deep blues go beautifully with bright cherry red in this Berry & Blue color scheme. Try to keep your contrast color just an accent, so the two colors don’t balance too evenly in your piece. It instantly creates interest! Put it on an extra luxurious fabric to make those colors seem even richer. See how it compares to the original.

Try this bold and dark Vintage & Crimson color scheme out on your embroidery designs.

Just because the season is spring doesn’t mean you can’t look to others for inspiration! This week, go dark and bold with this autumnal Vintage & Crimson color scheme. Soft warm browns give your design a cohesive vintage look, but the pop of bright red gives it unexpected drama. Stitch it on a sepia fabric or even applique some vintage lace behind it for an extra decadent look. See how it compares to the original.
