No, that's not a separate layer, so the contrast rule doesn't apply. It's
not a green thing layed heraldically on top of a purple thing; it's a purple
thing with green frou-frou layed on a white thing.
I'm not sure how to blazon it, but as given, it's very reminiscent (but
clear) of Mistress Alisandre Oliphant: " Argent, an elephant passant
purpure, armed Or, on a chief embattled purpure three annulets Or".
Mistress Alisandre is an Ansteorran peer who is still occasionally seen.

I have someone who would like a device of a purple elephant with a green
blanket across the back (like a saddle) on a white field. My question is
would the blanket and elephant violate the contrast rule? Also, how would
you blazon it?
