What is CBW?

pendlestock; UnicornReality; FireFlyExposed and Amarie-Veneanar bring to you the wonder that is createbyweek ~
Every Sunday we give you a stock image - what you do with that is up to you! We accept any visual art media that either reference or manipulate the image - this does include photography, though obviously sometimes you have to work a little harder  ~
You have a week to submit your entries and then a three day poll will be made and the community chooses the winner

VOTING: WEEK 245 ~ The moon and the stars

Moon 2 by Lill-stock

A fantastically easy to cut out stock ... also very easy to draw or reference from.
Specially chosen for our very busy people :D ... well done on our two entries, they are beautiful!

I'm just wondering, why did you say *JinxMim's stock isn't valid? I used one in one of my latest manips, so I was curious....

I ended up doing a 2nd entry, a flower wallpaper, for week 171...hopefully it got in (it was entered before time ran out. I 'suggested it as a fave'; I think that's the right way?

I think I just submitted two favorites to the Current Entries instead of the Stock Pool. My bad. ~headdesk~
