Dr Coffin's Apthocary Cabinet

 I know everyone is super excited to do Laura's Apothecary
event coming up later this month.
In the mean time.....
Need a little more inspiration?
I used all but one stamp from Oxford Impressions
New DR. Coffin's Apothecary stamp set
to create my Apothecary shoppe

I like to think my art tells a story. Follow me around the shoppe
and you'll see what the Old Dr's been up to.

Dr. Coffin and his latest patient victim

 
Mixing his concoctions.
Wonder what he has in mind?

The poor grieving widow....

What skeletons he must have in his closet.

Have a Spooktacular crafty Halloween !!!!

I have fallen off my seat - pick me up Lynn!!!!
Incredible use of Suzanne's stamps. Now I am just too excited to get them in the mail so I can get inky. It is funny as this afternoon I was applying Gesso to a wooden house (holds thimbles) in anticipation of the stamps arriving and then I visit your Blog and see this astounding creation.
As I say you are Queen of Hallowe'en.
Wishes
Lynne
Off to a darkened room to calm down lol
