Here are the details for November 2010…
November Challenge: Use your stamps to create Gift Tags or Handmade Gifts, or create cards/projects of ANY theme that incorporate Inking Techniques. (This could be any type of inking technique at all — resist, watercolor stamping, direct to paper, distressing, etc. Check out Shari Carroll’s new technique article for one inking idea, and Jennifer McGuire’s Holiday Thinking Inking Series at Two Peas in a Bucket for even more.) This month’s contest provides an opportunity to get a jump start on your holiday cardmaking, gift giving, and even gift wrapping! Please use at least one Hero Arts stamp or Hero Arts digital element on each of your projects, and please be sure they are newly created for this month’s contest.
Submitting and Tagging: Upload your entries to the Hero Arts Flickr Group. Check the FAQ here for more information on how to upload to Flickr. When submitting your creations, please be sure to include the following tags:

We would love to see everyone participate, from the wonderful long-time members, to the active contest submitters, to first timers, to casual participants. Our goal with this new contest format is to give more people more opportunities to submit, and more opportunities to show off our wonderfully diverse and inspirational creations from our broad community of stampers!
