If you use a fill with a pattern you can see both areas. See the sample I attached. It doesn't look great. Maybe you can find a combination that looks better. If you do, please share your results here.

I found out using a gradient looks better than a pattern. But it works when you use different patters too. But always use 'no color' as the second color. This gives the transparency. Use the colors from your company website and nobody will complain they don't like the colors :-)
