Cool Decoy Madness 2.0

Its that time again. The last submission was a great success and I look forward to seeing the great creativity from the Blowout Community once again. Take all those decoys you have laying around taking up space and put them to use!

Create your own sets. Sets can be numbered to anything you want.

/1 /5 /10 /20....anything. The more you send the better.

If you dont have any decoys then you can do the following:
-cut a piece of computer paper to the size of a card
-sketch on it
-stick it in a top-loader

Here are some examples from the last submission.

The first one pictured won "best decoy" for the first submission. Created by Hellfish.





Here is a link to the album with all the submissions over the summer.
http://s1057.photobucket.com/user/st...?sort=6&page=1

Rules:

-Every card MUST have your BO name on it somewhere so whoever receives them will know who made it.

-When your cards are done, PM me for the address where you need to send the cards to. Included in the PM must be: A checklist of the cards you are submitting as well as photos or scans (if you dont have a camera or scanner then dont worry about it as I will make sure your decoys have pictures uploaded).

-Each entry must be received by December 2nd 2013 so packages can be sent out in time for the holidays.

-If you participate, you have to pay return shipping. I will PM you when it is time for me to ship (early December).

-YOU MUST SEND IN A BUBBLE MAILER. I will be reusing the mailers to send packs back to you to keep the shipping fee on your end to a minimum.


A final checklist as well as photos of every submission will be available to all participants too see. I will post when this will be uploaded (Checklist will be after I have received all submissions and the photos will be uploaded for all to see after everyone gets their cards). There will be a thread created in the "Off Topic" section after I receive all packages that will be used for posting what hits you received and any other comments regarding the submission.

Since we are only allowed one thread this year (in the off-topic forum) then it would be a great help if you can help us spread the word that this is happening by temporarily posting the link to this thread in your signature. If you choose to do this then thanks ahead of time

LETS GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD!

I am pleased to say that nabzy28 will be helping me with the threads and will be able to answer any questions you have if I cannot answer back right away. Feel free to ask him questions as well.

It has officially begun! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this time around!

If you are participating, and can fit it into your signature, please consider adding a link back to this thread, similar to stripedbass' and mine. We are not allowed to post multiple threads to update participants in any of the other main topic categories.

Thanks to all who are, and will be, sending in cards for Round Two!!
