When I am ready to punch a background,
I will gather up several color choices and
place them on the inside of the hoop,
next to the design and see how they compare.
Almost right away, I can eliminate a few.
Sometimes, it is not so clear or easy !
As with the following design...
I love this Valdani thread - Monochrome.
But the final result just wasn't what I had in mind !
Luckily, Perle Cotton pulls out "clean and quick"...
This Black and White check
gave this punchneedle design
the "crisp and clean" background I wanted.
Back to my current punchneedle background...
I love the strong colors in this design.
I really wanted a background color
that would warm up this piece.
Valdani Perle Cotton #8 in Vanilla Sky
Pale and slightly golden at the same time.
This shade has a faint hint of pale blue mist in it.
I think it might work. ;)
