Seth Apter Tag 4

Another sample, back to tags today. I am sure you must get sick of seeing them but they are such a convenient substrate on which to do samples. 

Now for Seth's stamps, first the criss cross background stamp in Tinned Peas paint, then the circles in Fern Archival ink and finally the stars in Olive Archival ink. 

I then added a layer of Crazing medium. These cracks are so tiny but i do love them. They show up brilliantly once you wipe French Roast over them. 

I used Seths stencil to add the words past, present,future in Cherry Red and Coral  paint. the ring is die cut from Robo Rings and painted with Blue China. 

I painted some smoothy with Coral and Cherry Red and stamped out my small flower from EDY18 

I then played around with them to figure out placement. I wanted to create another circle, but with dimension. I die cut the large coffee ring 5 times and glued them all together. This was painted black and then had Treasure Gold  added. 

Inside the rings I stamped one of Seth's stamps to create the lines and then over stamped with HP1303

The flowers were glued on in pairs to add height and the middles filled with liquid pearls. 

 Lots of details added with black and white pens. 

All done. I couldn't leave it at 2 circles, an odd number is always better.. so I added a third die cut from Ring Around.
