Giveaway: Original Artist Trading Card from Beth's Artworx

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS, CLAIRE!
So here's something fun! Have you heard of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)? I have, but sadly, I don't have any. I think they would be really fun to collect! Here is your chance to start or add to your collection. Etsy's BethLeda, of Beth's Artworx, is giving away the above original ATC to one lucky winner here on Fishing and Wishing!


She's called "Fragrance Faery" and is a collectible. Beth uses Staedtler pigment liner pens, micron pens, Bristol board, and Prismacolor pencils to create her ATCs.

What is an ATC?


They are tiny works of art, 2½" x 3½", original, and self-produced by the artist. Anybody can produce them. They are meant to be traded and collected, like baseball cards, either online or in person. What a fun idea, right?


Here are some more of BethLeda's ATCs, from Etsy:




"Elven Baby", which can be had here for just $3.99. Isn't that a sweet little elf?




"Slumbering Might" can be purchased here for $4.99. Such intricate detail goes into each of Beth's works; she thinks of them like jewelry, beautiful and unique.

"Waterlily" is available here for $4.99. (Imagine! You can own your own original works of fine art for less than five bucks each!) This one was of a waterlily that Beth found floating in her backyard pond. Beautiful.

WIN IT!!

To win the "Fragrance Faery" Artist Trading Card, visit Beth's Artworx and then comment back here with your favorite item in her shop. (Be sure to show some ♥ while you're there!) It's that simple! This is required and must be done before any additional entries will count.
