Relief prints on rice paper

My latest material discovery is rice paper. I have never seen rice paper like this before. It has an incredible pattern. Simply rolling ink onto the surface reveals the pattern in more detail.

When printing with other materials such as the sponges and jelly, the pattern of the rice paper overrides the pattern of the stamp. Therefore, I feel that the more subtler qualities of these stapes are lost on the rice paper, and so a different surface should be used for these types of print.
