Ice Valkyrie Enamel Pin Design

This is the second design that was voted on by members of my Patreon. It is an Ice Valkyrie. A few improvements from the original concept are the replacement of Elder Futhark with Younger Futhark, the written letters actually used during Viking era Scandinavia. Also a little snowflake.
As with the other design I had to simplify quite a bit to conform to the specifications required for making an enamel pin. Only 4 colors + the metal color itself, and they must be flat, no gradients. The lines had to be made bolder as well. Some of the finer lines might drop out.

Here is the original design painted in watercolors.
