It's the weekend again .... whoo hoo!
Not only that, it's the first Friday of the month and we all know what that means ....... yes it's new challenge time over on the Craft Stamper Blog.
As always the theme is Anything Goes .... as long as there's rubber stamping on there somewhere.
I've got a little 3D project for you today ........ using the Mini WhimsyGirls stamps, designed by Craft Stamper's very own Trish Latimer. How cute are these little ones!!
I've had this block of wood sat on my desk forever, waiting for inspiration to strike. It was thrown into a box when we moved house ........ finally got unpacked again and sat back on my desk waiting to be altered.
Well ...... here it is finally. These little stamps were just the perfect size. Actually, they're called minis but they're not that small ...... the block is about the size of an ATC (9.5cm x 6.5cm and it's about 4cm thick so a nice size)
I gave the block a quick coat of gesso then painted it using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints ......
and then added some splatters of pearlescent paint in silver, blue and gold.
I stamped the Whimsy Girls onto white card stock and coloured them using Zig Clean Color Brush pens
There's two little cuties in this set and I used both ......
The girls were fussy cut and attached onto the block using foam pads ....... how cute is this little angel
I finished off the block with some crystal stars to the sides
and white rub on's to add the words
The feet are actually old wooden beads given a coat of white pearlescent paint and attaxche dto the bottom of the block
And I added an old wooden drawer handle on to the top
As always we have a challenge sponsor, and this month it's the fabulous Visible Image
And guess what ..... the challenge winner's prize is an amazing 3 .... yes THREE!!! sets of Visible Image stamps ..... WOW!!
Don't forget there's a Design winner too .... chosen by the DT. The prize up for grabs there is ....

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend.
I'm off to the old craft room to put the finishing touches to a workshop for tomorrow. I'm surprisingly bright this morning considering ..... we had a great time at the IOM Beer Festival yesterday and then a fantastic meal out with a group of friends.
And guess what .... we're doing it all again this evening. No beer festival ...... just a birthday!
Cheerio until next time .....
