I told all of my stampers to do as I say and not as I do when it comes to Designer Series Papers. I have a tendency to not want to use so I will have enough to use for classes but if I don't use it when I'm stamping then I tend not to come up with designs to use in class so the paper sits unused and then it retires before I've shown it off! It's a terrible cycle and I'm bound and determined to to do better with papers from the new catalog (available to order from tomorrow!!!).
For class we used 3 (well really 6 if you count the backside pattern) sheets and mixed and matched them to created this blocked background.
I think the black and vanilla and gold combo is such a classic look. We added a bit of sparkle by using a Black Glimmer paper behind the flower panel. We colored the center of the flower with the Gold Wink of Stella.
Adding a bit more gold behind the flower with the Printed Gold vellum paper and then a strip of gold sequin trim.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
