Enter to Win the June GIVEAWAY CONTEST!

Contest is from Wednesday June 3rd ~ Friday, June 12th

If you don't already know, today is the first day for the Red Heart 13 June GIVEAWAY! It has been a marvelous two years on etsy and I have made adoring friends and support from so many. There aren't enough words to say thank you, so I wanted to show some love by having my first giveaway. 

To kick things off, I took a poll to find out what people wanted to see as the giveaway prize, I gave the option of a gift certificate, small relic locket, a Skeleton Krew painting or earrings. 85% of votes were for the Skeleton Krew painting, and I was so astonished to see so many people love my haunting original paintings. This past weekend I took some time and painted two new cabinet cards to add to the macabre family, I had a small voting poll between Midnight Matilda and Weeping Elora. The people have spoken and the giveaway prize is going to be Skeleton Krew no.022 Midnight Matilda.

E N T E R   T O   W I N
Wednesday, June 3rd ~ Friday, June 12th
The giveaway contest is simple, I thought I would make it easy this time around; though future contests may acquire some imagination! Show some love by:
~ Leaving a comment that includes your name and email address or etsy shop name.

Note: anyone who left a comment in the last two voting blogs will automatically have their names entered into the giveaway.

T H E   P R I Z E
The winner will be picked randomly out of all the ballots come late night on June 12th. The winner will be notified and will receive the painting below of Skeleton Krew no.022 Midnight Matilda. Matilda was a victim of envy. Arsenic was the vice from the hands of her sister; it was the perfect crime, mixing it into her midnight tea. 

The painting is done in all black gouache on an antique photo cabinet card measuring 4.25" w x 6.5" h, the live painted area is aproximately 2.5" w x 3.5". She comes stamped, signed and numbered on the back of the card, she is a perfect piece to add to any cabinet of curiosities or even a personal painting collection.
