Day 20 - 31 Days of Halloween meets Vera Lane Studio

Welcome to Day 20 of our 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.

Want to go Trick or Treating with me?

This cute wee girl is 'October' by Vera Lane Studio.  Isn't she wonderful.
I love the quirky image from Vera Lane Studio, and this was so much fun to colour. I used my Letraset Promarkers and Uni Posca pens to colour her.

For the background on my card I decided to use up some of the scraps of patterned papers left over from my previous projects.  So to make my really simple, but fun background, I cut 1 inch squares from each patterned paper and then adhered to my card blank.

My sentiment is from DCWV's Bewitched Stack.  The purple border was another leftover, to which i added some orange polka dot organza ribbon before layering on my card.  To compliment the ribbon I added an orange ribbon bow from my crafty stash.

I love this background technique, simple yet effective, and you can of course vary the shapes you use. A great way to use up those scraps of paper that we just don't want to waste.

That's all from me for today, Happy Hopping,
See you tomorrow
Bye for now
