DZFANTASY'S DECEMBER GIVEAWAY - TROPICAL MERMAID

6.5" Tropical mermaid
fiber sculpted mermaid



WELCOME to DZFANTASY'S December "giveaway". Since the snow is blowing and it is really looking like the start of winter where I live (Wisconsin), I decided to make my "December giveaway" one of my tiny little fiber sculpted mermaids to warm things up!



START DATE: December 1, 2008


END DATE: December 31, 2008 - 12 Midnight CDT


PRIZE: 1


ELIGIBILITY: Open WORLD WIDE - 1 entry per person


VALUE: $45.00


HOW TO ENTER:


1. Leave a comment in this post.
2. PLEASE be sure to leave at least your first name, and a MEANS OF CONTACTING you should you be the lucky winner! You may sign in as ANONYMOUS, but I still need a first name and a means of getting a hold of you. This saves me a lot of time and confusion, when a winner is finally selected. THANKS!

A WINNER will be randomly selected on January 1st or January 2nd, from all of the entries. The winner will be notified via email, that is why it is important to leave this information in your comment! Emails are used for no other reasons than to contact you regarding this giveaway.

WINNER will have 5 days in which to email me at: dzfairies@msn.com with their shipping information. If WINNER does not respond within the 5 day timeframe, I will randomly select another WINNER from the remaining entries. If you have ANY questions, please feel free to contact me via my email address listed above.

Now....a bit about the mermaid!


She is the smallest of my "wall style" mermaids, measuring 6.5" tall. There is a loop on the back so that you can either hang her on the wall or have her twirl and dance from a bit of ribbon or clear fishing line!

She is my own original design, and has been indvidually created by me. Her tail was designed from a beautiful batik fabric, in shades of coral, with metallic gold lines running through the pattern


The tail has been stuffed with acrylic fiberfill, the fins top-stitched into a design and have inner wire armatures, so that you may bend them up or down a bit.


Her upper body/face is 100% silk. I hand-drew, needle-sculpted and hand-painted her face. Her eyes and lips have a coat of crystal clear lacquer which gives her a very "life-like" look and shine. Her arms also have inner wire armatures, so that they also may be bent up and down a bit.


Her colorful hairdo is a soft wispy yarn which glistens. Its color is various shades of coral mixed with "poofs" of olive green.


Her accents are Swarovski crystals, tiny seed beads, and real sea shells.


THANKS FOR VISITING


GOOD LUCK!

MaggieM said...

Oh Donna! She's beautiful! Another wonderful creation by a fantastic fiber artist...a dear friend of mine (who collects Mermaids) has experienced one disappointment after another this past year...to the point that she has even lost her creative muse. I miss her creations, but I know that she has been depressed SO I would love to win this Mermaid doll for her to bring her some much-needed cheer.
