23 Sep Thread Scheme – SCT033 Pinky the Bear
When I saw this picture, I immediately got excited about this scheme! I’ve always had an affinity to the combination of pink and brown. I don’t know why, but the chocolate tones I feel go so well with the cherry tones. Hmm, maybe it comes from my love of chocolate covered cherries? Anyways, when I saw this picture from a couple of year ago, it made me excited! The bear was a Christmas gift to our dogs, and lasted several years. This was the first time they saw it, and it just makes me smile! Sad to report, the bear met its end just this last year, after being thoroughly de-stuffed! But, we had a good several years!
The threads work beautifully, and this scheme turned out nicely! Do pay close attention to the color of the fabric, because you have a lot of light colors in it, so toss the threads on the fabric prior to making your selections.
For each of these thread schemes, or palettes, , I’ll include both an image showing how it was built (to the left), and a thread color schemes, with actual thread numbers, that you can print out. Feel free to save these cards, because you never know when you’ll need them.
Keep your eye out for more color schemes coming in the Simply Color series!
Have you learned more about color harmonies that I cover? Take a look into them, and let me know what you think!!! You’ll never run out of thread palettes again!!!
What part of color inspires you?
