Starry Night Meets American Gothic

Good morning and Happy Monday. This is my last Halloween themed piece for this year, 'cos Christmas is coming (not that I'll be making my cards till mid December lol but the intention is there)
I recently won some fabulous Lost Coast Design stamps, so it would be very rude not to play with them.

I started by painting my Tando frame with DecoArt Media paints. Then lots of stencilling with a couple of Andy Skinner stencils.
You can't beat a bit of head swapping for Halloween.
I really like these Andy Skinner stencils with the silver metallic and interference paints. The shrunken skelli heads are shrink plastic.

Here's the whole happy family - even Basil's smiling!

This was great fun to make, so thank you Lost Coast for the fabulous stamps. I'm linking this to their 31 Days of Halloween scary or weird challenge, along with the Dream in Darkness challenge with the same theme.

Right, back in the garage for me, have a great week and thanks very much for looking xx
