What do you see?

Stamps: It's Your Day (HA)
Ink: Aqua (Ranger Adirondack); Blue Danube, Lulu Lavender, Lilac Posies, Espresso Truffle (Memento)
What pattern do you see in the above?  Stars?  Stacked boxes?  Hexagons?  Mostly I see the boxes.
I have made a great discovery this morning.  Tracing paper makes the best stencils.  I created an overlapping hexagon pattern with Silhouette Studio, & cut it out of tracing paper.  I then sponged over the stencil with a variety of inks.  The stencil gave nice crisp lines, no bleeding & no soggy bits - I'll be able to use this one again.  I also like the effect of the sponging on the linen textured card stock.
