Does anyone have the edible eggplant ink pad yet?  I have it in my cart right now.  I haven't tried the GinaK inks yet, but want to try a couple.

My question is, is it really purple? (I know that sounds silly).

I have the Hero Arts Navy shadow ink pad and it is a very dark navy with purple tones. I just want to make sure this color is different enough from that.  I am not as concerned with matching cardstock as I am with having ranges of colors.

If anyone happens to know, I would appreciate it! TIA!

Heidi, I don't have the Edible Eggplant, but do have several of Gina's stamps and the colors are pretty true to what you see on the website. I love her ink. The colors are vibrant. I would think it would be very close to the color on here. I hope that helps you a little.

 

I just got my Edible Eggplant inkpad today.....it stamps a very deep purple.  It's definitely a deep purple and not a navy.  The color is almost identical to the inkpad lid color and it does match exactly the Edible Eggplant cardstock.

Thank you ladies!  I think I may go ahead and buy it.  I don't have any dark purple ink and it would be lovely with fall cards, plus I would get to try a new ink!

I haven't placed an order here in a while, but that darn Stamp TV kit is so beautiful this time!  lol

 I just got my Edible Eggplant pad. It's a gorgeous, deep, vibrant color. But it is VERY dark. I think it's beautiful!!

Thanks so much. I bit the bullet and placed my order. I will try to remember to report back to say if the color is what I expected.

Judy, I can tell you what I do frequently with my navy inkpad.  I do generation stamping to get a lot more colors out of it.  I imagine it would be lovely to do that with the eggplant color too.  

Just an update. I have had my inks for about a week now. I bought edible eggplant and dark sage.  The edible eggplant is definitely very dark purple.  When you first stamp it, it looks like it has a brown undertone.  So it is a very FALL color of dark purple.  It does change a bit (for the better) as it dries.  I got a nice second and third generation stamping with this ink.

The dark sage is also a nice color, it also is a browner, fall color.  When I put a bit on an acrylic block to try to water color with it (I do this with a lot of inks and markers) it does not give a true color, it is more a brown when you add water.  The eggplant worked to watercolor with in the right tone.  It isn't a big deal, but it is good to know which inks you can watercolor with and which you can't.

If I load the stamps with ink really well, they do ink well with both line and solid stamps (I was working with the new stamp tv kit)
