Stamping Dragon Designs - October Calendar - Jiggy's halloween!

So this week I wanted to have a play with a fab new image from the whole new calendar range!! (which might I add is on special offer at the minute so hop on over and have a look HERE!) 

I chose Jiggy's Halloween which is the October calendar and you can buy Jiggy here. I inked him up slightly so he wasn't completely white as I am sure ghosts get dirty!!  


I used Basic Grey eerie papers which were kindly given to me last year by Jennie. I added a Skull and crossbones charm, tied on a piece of dental floss and added a diecut and embossed sentiment. I inked around the edges in black ink to get rid of the white card.

I wanted to hand write a sentiment on the inside of the card, which isn't perfect but hey who cares!! then decided it still looked too white so I got out my trusty black ink pad and set to smudging it all over the inside of the card, a lovely effect if I do say so myself and so fitting with the card! 


Hope you like it!!
