Circle Of Knowledge

Been having a little inky time this morning creating a tag for 100 Proof Press using the Med. Many Line Circle.
I created my background with Distress Inks picking up the ink from my craft mat, continuing the process until I was happy with the colour.
I added a little colour throught a Crafters Workshop Mini Numbers Template to add a little more interest to the background.  I used Distress Ink spiced marmalade and worn lipstick, adding a little more colour to the distressed edges for definition.
You can see the numbers in a little more detail on this picture. I then added the Med. Many Line Circle to my tag adding white highlights to lift from the background.
I punched a small flower in the bottom corner and added a little 7 Gypsies tape along with a quote from ALBERT EINSTEIN .
I cut a heart from corrugated card using the Alterations mini hearts set, colouring with spiced marmalade ink and adding a trinket pin for added interest.
The flower I punched out from the bottom corner has been added to the top corner along with coordinated brad and fibres.

I would also like to add this piece to The Stampman Challenge and this time around it is a BINGO CARD/RECIPE challenge.
