Stamping on Pattern Paper

Hello friends!
As stampers, we don't seem to use pattern paper enough. I don't know about you, but I love to buy 
6" x 6" pattern paper pads! It can get addictive and out of control... (LOL). The Tea Garden from Basic Grey was calling my name so I had to get it and then it sat on my desk for a few days...until I got the stamp set "Many Thanks".

I found one sheet of pattern paper (a black and white one) that seemed to be a perfect match for the new flower image.
many thanks
To keep it simple, I didn't stamp any fancy color layering for the flowers. To tone down the images, I embossed the sentiment on vellum and added a piece of silver pattern paper and sequins to complete the design. I love how it turned out! 
Now if I can only figure out how to use the rest of the pattern paper; that will be my next mission!
You can still enter the StampNation "In The Mood" Class giveaway (deadline is June 21st).

Thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic technique! I have so much patterned paper it's great to get some inspiration to use it.

This is a fabulous the color against the B&W pattern. Your choice of colors is inspired. Unfortunately, I have a glut of 6X6 pads, too. Think I'll break one open and see what transpires.

I love that you stamped on the patterned paper! I never think about doing that! Great colors and a wonderful sentiment with it too!

Excellent way of using a patterned paper! Thank you for a great idea! Love the white sentiment on vellum and a silver stripe muting the bright background.
