Was 1 November lost in the Halloween overkill?

Not surprising really, considering everyone has been so heavily focussed on their pumpkins, tricks and treats.  Meantime Asylum Anne is suffering from all the pink timbers her builders keep bringing on site.  So when some stamps arrived in the mail, and the same stamp company wanted a pink theme just before Halloween, she crumbled, fell apart, succumbed to extreme suffering and went on to miss their deadline.  Playing with new stamps can make for sketchy pieces, and heat embossing sometimes reveals that a stamp should not have a coloured embossing powder treatment, that pink ink and clear ep might have been better:
Have I even GOT a pink inkpad???

Of course this is how we are more used to seeing that stamp.

Then there's "same stamp different sentiments":
and one can't help wondering the lengths one will go to to justify pinkness...
And finally, a pink gargoyle and a flying pig?
All those stamps came from Lost Coast Designs.  So I hope you'll forgive the pinkness and awfulness, but someone's suffering from "pinkeye"!
Just hope your efforts down the right-hand column are a more properly weird/scary composition!

YOUR dark/creepy/weird entry on the right in the numbers 61-80 could be chosen for this fabulous Gesturing Skeleton Doll - freezingly inked in ice-blue -  from Mad Rat  The head and torso alone is 9cm high!  You won't be getting the Pierrot doll, just left him showing for the heck of it.

1 October

Evil Froggie is in charge!!!
He showed Asylum Anne his concept drawing for her new Studio-Asylum:

Personally we think he just browsed her stamp collection, and found it in her Blank Page Muse collection.  And his "selfie" references

We haven't seen the builders for 3.5 days, but the frogs are ecstatic - they think they're getting a custom Convention centre!!!
Meanwhile Anne's been "enhancing EF's sketch - ATC size - and bringing the Rocky Horror Show - "Open the door Janet, Dammit" into the 23rd millennium "Beam her up Scottie"!
From a slightly different angle, you may get a better sense of the people being 3-D "dolls" from Silver Crow Creations

And now it's Eyes Right to see what has been shared by others, or to link your own offbeat creation.
