:bulletred: The theme of this contest is ONE COLOR.  There are many shades of ONE COLOR.  You can choose any one color (and all the shades for that one color) for this contest.  Pick anything you want to stitch, but it has to be ONE COLOR.

EXAMPLE: If you choose the color BLUE and are using DMC threads, you could use Cornflower BLUE, Periwinkle BLUE, Delft BLUE.  As long as the color has the name of BLUE it is considered a shade of BLUE.  As Magical525 pointed out: THERE ARE 50 SHADES OF PINK!  This is your challenge! :D  Need more help with colors?  Here is a tool that lists colors by color families:  www.yarntree.com/075dmccolors.…

:bulletred: In your description please provide the reason why you chose the ONE COLOR, the pattern, the fabric and the floss type and color numbers.

PRIZES

1st Trophy by H-SWilliams  Stitchy Travel Bag from Mattsma, Picture to Pattern from HGKitten and a magical mystery gift from Magical525

:star: First place special note: When you win first place, you will have to sit out of the next contest as a contestant.  However, you WILL be an honorary judge for the following contest if that is something you are interested in. What this means is you will assist in scoring submissions.  You can submit to the contest as a judge but your submission won’t count towards the competition itself (the judges participate but their entries don’t count).

2nd Trophy by H-SWilliams  Picture to Pattern from HGKitten, a magical mystery gift from Magical525, and a Stitching Pirates Needleminder

I'm late to the party...as usual!  So, does black count as grey? :)  I have a piece that uses all of the colours from the Yarntree chart in greys colour family 18 - and that includes black (that is grouped with black in the families).  Is that familial enough that it can be included?

:iconmattsma:
Mattsma Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes, if you are using the color family 18 :D  I'm intrigued!

Hmmm. What browser are you trying to open it up with? I just loaded it and it worked okay on my end, I'm on Firefox myself.

Typically adblock buffers are what block things from opening. If that fails, try a different browser temporarily or check your online security options.

:thinking: I don't know enough about the right questions to ask to troubleshoot it for you. :c I'm sorry. I know, while my page was loading, that it had a little prompt for me to download a PDF reader for my browser... but as soon as the page was done loading it went away and the PDF showed as normal. Do you have something that might be blocccccking it, maybe? Like Noscript or Adblock?

Just to make sure I'm understanding this right, I just woke up, if I picked blue I could various shades of blue? If so, would I have to stay with blue blue or could I use blue green or blue purple?

:iconkaidayinthyme:
KaidaYinThyme Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Also, does the fabric have to be the same colour as the thread?
Reply
:iconmattsma:
Mattsma Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Okay, If you pick Delft Blue, you can only use that color blue but you CAN use LIGHT DELFT BLUE all the way to SUPER DARK DELFT BLUE. The fabric can be anything you like, but the image you stitch MUST be one color.

In that case, i'll have to substitute some colors. thanks. :)

:iconmattsma:
Mattsma Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2018  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
To clarify:  if the color of floss you are using JUST has the name BLUE it can be used as it is BLUE: Cornflower Blue, Periwinkle Blue, Delft Blue...does that make more sense?

The one colour really makes it challenging, so it's a good thing I love a challenge :D. Also very curious what other people will come up with.
