Bold is not just bright colors. Sometimes fabrics and backgrounds make designs pop!
Ever wonder why some embroidery designs just jump off the fabric? Here are some techniques you can use to bring your embroidery to life.
Just as in photography, high contrast between the subject (embroidery design) and the background (fabric) makes a difference.
It does not matter whether the background is white or black. Solid black fabric used with Blooming Garden from Sweet Heirloom Embroidery makes bright colored embroidery designs almost three-dimensional.
Of course, thread and fabric colors matter. Brights stand out and help contribute to the overall project contrast, whether on black or white background fabric.
Bright tone-on-tone fabric used in Applique Butterfly 1 from KC Dezigns keeps the design bold without distracting from it with wild prints. Stitching it on a plain background gives it even more contrast.
