Hello, friendly neighborhood stampers!
I know that it's been awhile but are you ready for a brand new rubber stamp release from Tickled Pink?! We are super excited to be kicking off the year with some fresh, new images that are different and fun! This time the Lolitas and Lads have traveled back in time to the era of the Greek Gods and Goddesses.
In the past I have admitted that I'm quite a nerd about certain things and the mythology of the Greek Gods is definitely one of those 'nerd areas' for me, LOL! I think I read my first stories of them back in elementary school and I have been hooked ever since. There has been so much great art created throughout history based off of the characters and stories from Mount Olympus. As well as a lot of fun pop culture takes on them as well. In fact, some of my most fave 'guilty pleasure' historical romance novels are re-imaginings of some of the Greek God tales... just check out Dazzling Brightness (Hades & Persephone), Shimmering Splendor (Eros & Psyche), Enchanted Fire (Orpheus & Eurydice), Thrice Bound (Hekate & Kabeiros) and Bull God (Dionysus & Ariadne) all by Roberta Gellis. I highly recommend them all! ;)
So anyway, you can imagine how excited I have been for this stamp release. And we are starting the whole thing off with Lilith's powerful take on the Goddess Athena. She is the goddess of wisdom and crafts, war and strategy, inventions in science, industry, art, and agriculture. She is best known as the olive-giving patron of her namesake, Athens. Not to mention that she looks just plain cool in her robes and armor, LOL! As far as cards go, I think she makes a great alternative for the traditional cap and gown type graduation cards and is fantastic for general achievement cards like this one too.
Now, as always it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink Stamps preview without a prize, so head on over to the Tickled Pink blog and leave a comment on today's post for a chance at winning your very own Lilith Athena stamp! And while you are there be sure to check out the gorgeous cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created too! :)
