DIY Pattern Paper

Hello friends!
Today's post is all about creating your own Design Paper.
I am sure you have come across with pattern paper with lots of colors and details.
Have you been inspired by the design paper? I sure have!  

I am using this Penny Black Stamp as my example.

I started out with a piece of Neenah white card stock. After some stamping and inking, this is it.

The entire images were stamped and colored in Distress Oxide.

You're quite the designer...this really is gorgeous. You could run off copies and sell them. Your special "Virginia touches" makes it exceptional.

Your card is lovely. I think Penny Black has great stamps, and your 'eye' sure does use stamps both uniquely as well as beautifully. Thank you.

Your artistic eye really did awesome cards. I think your cube idea is really excellent. the strip is wonderful. In my challenged eye, I can see multiple uses for these unique stencils. Thank you.
