Simply B Stamps Previews Day 2 Norse Gods

Hi there!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Simply B(etty) Stamps Teen Scene Norse Gods previews!  You should have arrived here from the talented Trish's blog!  If not, the complete hop order is listed at the end of the post so that you don't miss any of the amazing creations!

Today, as guest designer for the release, I have two more mighty beings to share with you!  First up is London Freya!  She is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, gold, war, and death.  She rides in a chariot pulled by two cats and wears a cloak of falcon feathers.  Here she is colored with Copics and cut with my Labels Seventeen Nestabilities die from Spellbinders.  I tried my hand at adding patterns to my colored image- the two cats.  It turned out okay, but I think I need a bit more practice.  My leopard spots are too uniform.  I need to try making the the spots different shapes and sizes next time.  I sponged a bit of So Saffron ink from Stampin' Up around the edges of the image panel.  I added lots of bling and flowers plus a feather.  Papers are My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two- Sunshine.  I created the sentiment using the Clearly Sentimental About Food set from My Favorite Things and added the stamped designer paper to a metal rimmed tag.




Next up is Miller Heimdall!  He is the watchman, the shining god, the god of light.  (He is also a Marvel character and appears in The Avengers).  


I used the current The Sweet Stop skectch (SSS183) for this one.  Heimdall is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  Papers are DCWV The Natural Stack and were a bit difficult to photograph due to the foil.  For the oval element on the sketch I used the Beaded Ovals die from Spellbinders.  Gold pearls and ribbon plus a muse token from Tim Holtz finish off the details.

We're half way through the previews and release day is Friday!  What do you think so far?  I am loving being able to work with these images!  To see what the SBS team has created for today, here is the complete hop order:
