Makes for Men Artistic Stamper challenge

Hi everyone, great to have you visiting! Hope it feels like June where you are...... I won't say much about what it's like here.... the month of Summer???? Really????
Anyway, it being the first of the month means there is a new challenge over at the Artistic Stamper, the theme is "Makes for Men", in honour of Father's Day here in the UK. All you need to do is make a little something to the theme and link it and you are in with a chance of winning some fabulous Artistic Stamper stamps.

Here is my sample made from another of the wonderful caddies I received from Brenda, made entirely using stamps this time.

Have a creative weekend everyone, enjoy yourselves and thanks for your visit!

Wonderful piece--I am imagining all the things that a man would keep in it and wouldn't even mind if it was on show :)

That is amazing stamping! I thought is was metal too and it looks so real. I also love the wire wrapped around the heart. You could put alot of different things in it for a gift idea. Versatile and well done.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
