Stilt on Circles (Stage 3)

I decided I wanted to experiment and add more circles to the background.  I created another plate by gluing the circle texture to illustration board.  I then coated it with a thin layer of gloss medium.  I mixed a mauve color, inked and wiped the plate (with tarlatan), placed it on the dampened print and ran it through the press.  Unfortunately I did not achieve what I was looking for so I tried using black ink.  That worked better, but I thought the circles were too dark.  So I went to stage four.
