I find this piece valuable to have on hand. It's rich and deep providing nice contrast with many other colors without overtaking. One of my favorites!Beautiful with all the greens in Yellow-Green 3! If you have seen my sign at shows this is the background color. It's so pretty I have it available in 3 values; Light Dolly's Orchid, Dolly's Orchid and Dark Dolly's Orchid along with an 8 value swatch. The 8 Value Swatch would make stunning flowers!
For a beautiful rich and dark background mix Dark Dolly's orchid, Blackberry Smash, Berry Jubilee, Blooming Purple and Dark Blooming Purple.
