Eggplant, Artichoke and Suede

Those are the beautiful colors in the Color Throwdown Challenge this week and I love those colors.

Those are also the color of Stampin’ Up! papers of which I don’t have but I do have something (as close as i can get it) in dusty purple and a brown inked (it looks almost like suede, just a little darker) paper background and a green that comes near the artichoke green on the leaves of the stamped design. So I thought I could enter this in the challenge.
This has been sitting around for a couple of months waiting for something to pull it together and i love it with the purple.
The design was stamped on paper from the Paper Temptress (Cryogen White – Text weight) then painted with Yasutomo’s Pearlescent paints which took to the paper really well. The stamp from Impression Obsession (Victorian Rose by Leigh Hannon)is one of my favorites.
