I looked through my many Stampendous stamps but unfortunately didn't have one suitable to feature today so I have used an alternative image which I bought from Simon Says Stamp a while ago but haven't had time to colour until now.

I have featured an adorable Stamping Bella rubber stamp called Bundle Girl With Reindeer & I stamped my image onto Copic X Press It card stock and then coloured it with my copics. I'm by no means confident at colouring animals with adding in the fur detail & a couple of times I did think I'd messed it up so I'm going to enjoy having more practice at colouring fur.

I've stenciled some snow over my image using Simon's Falling Snow Stencil & Dreamweaver Embossing Paste & added a sentiment from Simon's Everything Winter Sentiment Strips.

I have stamped my images in Ink On 3 Fadeout ink onto Canson XL watercolour paper & water coloured them using Altenew watercolour pan set.

For my die element I die cut a background using Whimsy Stamps Checker background die and before popping out the die cuts I stamped Your Next Stamps Mini Star Ink Splatter in Simon's Fog Gray ink pad to add some delicate tiny stars around my flowers.

I created a card for this challenge but didn't give it a thought about which brand we are supposed to feature this week so my card features a stamp set from Simon's new Sunny Days Ahead release instead of a Mama Elephant product.

I have used a stamp set called GRAD PARTY & I stamped my images onto Copic X Press It card stock and coloured it with my copics. I have kept my card CAS & have just added a few sequins to embellish.

I heat stamped & embossed the flowers from the Perfectly Perfect stamp set using SSS Embossing Ink & SSS White Fine Detail Embossing Powder & then water coloured them using my Altenew watercolour pan set & fussy cut them.

I stamped a large butterfly from the Painted Butterflies stamp set using Hero Arts Soft Pink Ink Pad onto Copic X Press It card stock stamping the layers in the same ink to leave a faint outline, & stamping the large outline butterfly in SSS Black pigment ink. I didn't stamp my butterfly on watercolour paper as I wanted a nice crisp white background & not the creamy colour of watercolour paper but I wanted to add some watercolour paint to my butterfly so I braved carefully adding some watercolour paint over my butterfly to add deeper shading to draw the eye.

 I stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Flowers stamp set using Simon's Black pigment ink & mounted it onto fun foam & attached it to my card.

I haven't coloured using Distress Inks for a long time & decided to have a play with using them again. I stamped some of the images from Simon's Stronger Together stamp set onto Canson XL watercolour paper using Ink On 3 Fadeout ink pad and used a mix of Bundled Sage, Forest Moss, Pumice Stone, Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac & Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. Once dry I stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Delicate Flowers stamp set using Simon's Black pigment ink.
