Found on Flickr: Red & Green Colour Inspiration


Colour is an effective way of setting the mood in our stitchy projects. And simple combinations can often be the most striking. Especially when the colours are taken from opposite sides of the colour wheel.

Red and green are a classic pair of contrasting colours. Whether you go for the brightest version of the colours (as in the top image) or for a more muted effect (as in the image below.)

I think these two pieces are both beautiful examples of how a simple colour scheme can still have great effect.

  1. The Pohutukawa is called the New Zealand Christmas tree because it flowers before and during Christmas. Obviously I'm a bit late as I didn't finish this until March!! The very fine needles drop on the road so for a wee while we have the amazing treat of driving around on roads covered in a fine "red carpet"... pretty awesome! Thanks for showing my piece!
