I don't "do" purple that often but this is a lovely color that is a good mix of intensity and brightness so it is still colorful and yet still somewhat subtle. It goes really nicely with COPIC V 15 if you want to stamp and color in flowers.
Nice deep purple color. When I first got it, I wasn't sure how often I would use it. But I began to delve into my basic grey wisteria pack and ended up distressing almost all of the edges with dusty concord -- beautiful!
All of the Tim Holtz Distress Ink colors work so well together, I think.
This Dusty Concord is a beautiful color for single use.
I used to use Vintage Photo or Walnut Satin to add the dark shade for the edges.
This time, I used this Dusty Concord, I could get the elegant and decent impressions.
When making 2-3 color layers, this color's effect is various ways.
Mixing color is so fun and methods is so many ways.
These ink pads is a must tool for me to express the image I want wider.
Personally, I love the mixture of Dusty Concord, Scattered Straw (http://store.scrapbook.com/gb-tim21483.html), and Wethered Wood(http://store.scrapbook.com/prp-thtim20257.html).
It's hard to get any more purple then this stamp pad. Not too blue, not too red, just right in the middle. For comparison Seedless Preserves is more red. Less red means that it goes with the Distress line blue like Broken China, I even like Peacock Feathers with it. This pad is a base line, got-to-have purple once you have the primaries of red, blue, and pads like Tea Dye.
This is my all time favorite ink pad from the Tim Holtz collection!!!! Yes My favorite color is Lilac and some of the purple family!!! This is a deep rich purple color compared to the Milled Lavender which is a light color of purple!! They both work great together and are also complimentary to on another!~ You will not be disappointed!!!!
