Color Challenge Eggplant not purple...

What's in a name... I don't like purple, usually. However Adirondack Eggplant by Ranger...I like.

I tried again. This time using the Versamark with a large Hero background stamp. Then I used my Colorbox stylus with a round foam tip to add the "brayered" color. Stamping with the main color  after the foaming and here is the result.
You can just barely see the lighter lines of the Versamark. better in person. The text is from  Stampin' Up set.

 Waste no want not!

This will be my day 8 submission for the
