Worn Wallpaper meets Halloween by Judy Jackson

I don't often make Halloween cards but I love this SU set called Greeting Card Kids. Isn't this little girl sweet looking?
Last fall I bought a small paper stack of Halloween background paper made by Recollections. There are only a few sheets of each design. So I made four cards using different background designer papers. I knew these papers would be wonderful using the super easy technique called Worn Wallpaper from the current newsletter.
I used a background stamp called Sanded from Stampin' Up. It really did work to make the designer paper look worn out!
The little girl on the pumpkin for each card was watercolored and then sponged around the edges with green ink first and then the dark purple. I used scraps of the background paper as an extra layer behind the focal image of the little girl. It just adds some interest plus it also ties in some of the other colors used on the card. Each card is different and that is just fine!
I hope you have some time this week to do some stamping!
