A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams. -Dr. William A Ward

This week's Inspiration Challenge was a choice of any Wall Calender on, I will admit openly that this is NOT my style of art....but, I need more Man cards in my stash and I have been wanted to break out my Artistic Outpost stamps for weeks, so I picked this calendar to start from:

I went simple and straight forward for this one...stamped the image on vanilla CS, watercolored it with reinkers and a water brush, then distressed and sponged the edges...

Home Plate (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Vanilla, Chocolate, Blue (SU)
Ink: Timber Brown StazOn,Reinkers
Misc: Crate Words Rub-On

Thanks for stopping by!
