What is a blend?

The dictionary defines a blend as:
"A thorough mixture of one thing with another, as color, tint, etc., into another, so that it cannot be known where one ends or the other begins."

Therefore when creating a blend you must use 2 pictures or more to create a blend where it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. You can also add,text,filters,brushes,textures, and any other effects to your blend as well. There are a couple of ways to blend, you just have to find which is easier for you.

What are the rules?

Most of the rules here are the same with almost every other blending community. We won't be strict with the sizes of the blends if they exceed the given size. Just please try not to submit a huge blend. They take a while to load especially if they're in .png format.

F.Y.I You're blend can be anti or fan. Just as long as they are not obscene, racist, and all those other bad things. You can, however, add curse words or "sentence enhancers" as I like to call them lol. They can also be sexy as long as they're not raunchy and such.

--Must use 2 or more pictures in pic challenges.
--Use the pictures we supply unless otherwise noted.
--The blends can be 250x250 and no larger than 800x800 (Not strict)
--One entry per challenge
--Blends must be in either .jpg,.png,or.gif.
--Read the rules carefully for add effects

---Voting:Because it goes with rules
*Vote for the blend you think is the best, not just because it's a friends entry.

How to submit a blend.

It's very important that you don't submit your blend within the comments. It's much easier for you to e-mail us with the information we ask of you. Make sure to label your blend correctly to avoid confusion.

--Save blend as ethereal-username-challenge #
*example - ethereal-princess2k19-1
--Upload the blend to your own server.
--E-mail the following information to ethereal_blends@yahoo.com:
*Lj username
*Link to blend
