Different Values of Compliments?

If one uses a compliment color darker thread to add darkness / shadow on fabric underneath... you will likely note the result has a richness to it that a darker same color as the fabric wouldn't. Check out the burgundy thread (from the red family compliment to green) and what it does to add richness/ interest in the veins of the leaves.
 How about Lighter compliments
Nope.... I don't mean just saying something kind of nice to someone. See what happens when you use a lighter value compliment thread atop the compliment fabric? IT says.. LOOK AT ME!!!! The spools of thread I used  are shown at the bottom of the photo...
