"Purple" Color Perceptions ATC

For November, in the Color Perceptions ATC swap on ArtVentures Group, the color is Purple. The ATC is supposed to be predominately purple, and be based on how purple makes me feel. For this swap, Purple is more red than blue and Violet (December's color) is more blue than red. I also love the Color Purple (and Violet, too!), purple gets me thinking and dreaming and imagining, so my Perception of Purple is Dreamy.

I got a paper towel wet and sprayed it with Wild Plum Color Wash, wadded it up and dabbed it over a sheet of background paper that had a tan/brown background. Let everything dry, and ironed the paper towel.
 Stamped a background stamp over the paper with seedless preserves Distress Ink and let it dry.
 Wet the back ground and brushed on Plum Perfect Pearls and let dry.
 Glued a torn piece of the above paper towel to the top of the ATC, stamped "shoot the moon" with black India Ink on a light purple ribbon and glued it on top. Used TAP transfer paper to transfer a vintage image in purple ink on to white mulberry paper and cut & tore it out. Added 3 small purple "pearls" to the bottom right edge.
