softly, softly with 3rd colours of summer

Kirstin’s trio of colours in summer of colour this week offer a contrast from previous weeks by not being contrasting and instead are nearly 3 shades of purple – the grey is a warm one

subconsciously I must have been thinking soft with these colours as I was drawn to my photo of a feather covered in raindrops.  After extracting the image and colouring it in grey and lavender I played with several ways of displaying the feather against a plum background

I had some wool in a similar set of hues so was able to make another charity blanket square too

I’m really enjoying the different types of colour trios Kirstin is giving us for this challenge and look forward to seeing how others have used them.
