Simply B Stamps Previews Day 3 Norse Gods

Are you ready for more fabulous Simply B(etty) Stamps Teen Scene Norse Gods?!?  Yes?  Me too!  As guest designer, I was lucky enough to receive these eight awesome images to play with!  Here on Day 3 the team and myself have two more to share with you!  First up is Rio Hel!

Hel is the goddess of the underworld.  I decided to stick with only gray tones for her.  Black, white, and gray.  This is not a coloring technique I am adept at to begin with and it was very late when I started her so being tired didn't help!  We had out first snow yesterday, a pretty impressive nor'easter that left us with half a foot of snow.  The commute home took three times as long as usual so my whole night was off.  But I was determined to make both cards!  I did add Crystal Stickles to her hair for an "otherworldly" sparkle.

Papers are My Mind's Eye - Meadow Lark.  I used the Labels Twenty-Two Nestabilities from Spellbinders to cut out the image.  Flowers, a bling swirl, a metal corner and a sentiment from My Favorite Things' Twisted Foursome add that little something extra to the card.


  Next up is Lola Sif and I just adore her!  
Sif is the wife of Thor and is the goddess associated with fertility, marriage, and family.  She is also known for her golden hair.  My version is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers. She is mounted on top of die cuts made with Spellbinders dies- Ovals and Floral Ovals.  Papers are My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two - Blush.  I wanted to play along with the Graphicat Sketch (#19), and though my sizes are a little off with the oval element, I really like how it turned out!  The flower trim is from Tim Holtz - Lavish Trimmings.  I used Labels Twenty-One to cut out that fab sentiment from Create with TLC.  A few pearls are the only other embellishment added.


 I am having so much fun working with these beauties!  One more day!  We'll have the final two images to share tomorrow and the images will be released into the Simply B(etty) Stamps store!  I hope you'll join us then!  As for today, if you arrived from Trish's blog you are on track.  If not, here is today's hop order so you don't miss any of the design team's beautiful work!

These are both gorgeous Regan! I LOVE the glittered hair on Rio and Lola is colored beautifully :) I'm also seriously digging the sentiment on the card with Lola- I know a few people that would be so appropriate for! Hugs, Katie
