Changing colors in a sampler makes a big difference

I love to play with color....and I love how it changes the whole look of a design with a few color changes. The new mini sampler I just finished is a good example. I am selling the chart in two color combinations. Some people have a hard time trying to imagine a design with different colors....so here are two pictures for you.

Now I need to decide which color combination I will have a model stitcher do for me.......I love the darker red.....the actual colors I have selected are a little softer than these photos....the stitching program leaves a lot to be desired. Too bad it can't stitch each block as I fill it in with color...now THAT would be a stitching program!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Oh I LOVE the one with the darker red color!! It just seems to make it POP out on the chart!. But I can see where some might prefer the one with the yellow and blue to fit with their d├ęcor better. But I'm one to change the chart colors if they don't fit my style anyway. Great job!

  4. I love them both, but I think I like the top one best b/c it uses unique colours. Is it done on Aida, linen or evenweave?

    1. The stitching program shows it on linen...and that is what the model will be stitched on.

  5. The top one looks more "antique" because of softer colors. The red and the brighter purple on the bottom one makes everything look more defined.

  6. If you get a programme like that, please let me know which one it is: hard enough to get one which will even show what colour the threads are properly lol. They are both beautiful. Heads or tails lol?
