Hello everyone: My teammates and I at SHOPPING OUR STASH, have a brand new challenge for you to play with this coming week, the theme is "MYTHICAL AND MAGICAL" so go look in your stash of images for some Fairies, Unicorns, Gnomes, Dragons, Pegasus, Mermaids, etc. and come along and join us in the gallery.
Here is my DT card to inspire you.

This is another image from my fabulous stash of Fairy rubber stamps that my aunt gave me some years ago, she found them at a thrift store, in a cardboard box, dusty, all unmounted, play red rubber, with no names or any indication of where they were purchased, she bought the entire lot of about 25 stamps for $10.00 and gave it to me.
I love coloring this Fairies, all of them are beautiful and totally magical.
This one's name is "Opalite", I found THIS IMAGE on Pinterest and immediately pinned to my Fairies Board, it's rare that there is a name for this beautiful images, I tried to color her with more or less the colors of the picture, I used only Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps lightly dipped in Gamsol.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from an old Flourishes stamp set called "Orchids" and it's my favorite to use for my Fairy cards. The butterfly it's I think from Penny Black, I lost the package a long time ago.
So go and check out the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog to see my teammates beautiful creations and get even more inspired.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges.

Di's Digi Challenge "Include an Animal" My little animal is the butterfly.

The Fairy and the Unicorn April Challenge "Mythical and Mystical"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Apart from the fact that I want this stamp I also want you to tell me the names of the colours you used to colour her. She is absolutely stunning, the colour mix is out of this world. You do amazing pencil colouring.
