Take a Load Off

Hi Everyone! Here to share my card for this week's OCLDT 38 sketch challenge. This is my last day for focusing on pattern papers this week and this time, I chose to use papers from Crate Paper's Restoration 6x6 pad. I know a lot of people who have a hard time trying to figure out how to mix and match pattern papers. The easiest way to accomplish this is to stay within the same collection package. The papers are designed to work together, so it's easy to do. I used Smoky Shadow from PTI along with Summer Sun and Regal Rose from SU as my solid papers to match with this collection. I used Hot Betty and The Spin Cycle from OCL. I stamped each image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used a variety of Copic Markers to color it all in.
Here is a picture of the inside done as well, using some more of the pattern paper and scraps from the front of the card.
I hope you have enjoyed this week's theme of using pattern papers. I for one, was very surprised to learn how much quicker cards come together when using pattern papers. It's not as time consuming as embossing etc.
Speaking of embossing, be sure to come visit me next week, as that is going to be the focus for my next set of cards. Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
