The Goddess Challenge

Hello everyone!

Today The Stamping Chef and Simply Betty Stamps have teamed up again for another challenge for the Goddess in you!

Tamara and Betty have designed images for you to use in the challenge. Both images are $1.00 a piece for 24 hours after that it's regular price but you can still enter the challenge! A winner will be chosen for each image from each stamp company to receive a $10.00 gift certificate from each store.  WHOOHOO!!!

 Nefertiti can be found here : The Stamping Chef
 Persephone can be found here: Simply B Stamps

Here are my sample projects using both images.

The first is Nefertiti (ca. 1370 BC – ca. 1330 BC), the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, Aten, or the sun disc. With her husband, they reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history.

I have colored her up with my Next Generation Spectrum Noir markers. The background is from Make It Crafty and colored with Spectrum Noir markers as well.

Colors used: 
Skin: TN3,TN5, TN6, TN7
Head dress/ Necklace: TB6, TB8, TB9, JG1, JG6, DR3, DR5, DR7, GB4, GB6, GB7
Dress: :BG3, BG1, Blender, TB9, TB6
Background:TN2,TN3, TN5, TN1, IB1, Blender

Next up is Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and the harvest-goddess Demeter, and queen of the underworld. The beautiful Persephone lived a peaceful life until Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, fell in love with her.  She was innocently picking flowers with some nymphs in a field when Hades came to abduct her, bursting through a cleft in the earth. Finally, Zeus forced Hades to return Persephone. It was a rule of the Fates that whoever consumed food or drink in the Underworld was doomed to spend eternity there. Before Persephone was released, Hades tricked her into eating pomegranate seeds which forced her to return to the underworld for a period each year.

I have colored her up with my Next Generation Spectrum Noir markers as well.

Colors used: 
Hair: TN3,TN5, TN7, TN9, EB4
Skin: FS9, FS3, FS7, CR1, CR3, DR6
