Colour Enhancement, Colour Enchantment!
Changing the RainbowThere needed to be more purple in the tone and slightly more vibrancy to the bottom section of the rainbow. I decided to swap out 2 colours in the chart: I stuck with the chart up to DMC 503 (the green tone), then swapped DMC 160 for DMC 807. (I'm in the middle of stitching the 807 below, 503 is the tone next to it):
Then DMC 793 was swapped out for DMC 208.
(Progress shot of the 208 being added):
To add slightly more depth, a small row of DMC 333 was added to the edge of the 208 row:
This blended the new colours nicely with the existing charted area: (3807 being stitched at the bottom of the rainbow section, where the sky begins):

To see the first page stitched exactly as the original chart specifies please see this link. It links to the stitching I mentioned earlier, completed by GretchenJ on the HAED BB.
I can't wait to finish off stitching the rest of that rainbow!
Happy stitching ! xxx
