R is for.........................

Roost.......

This letter caused me to scratch the little grey cells and after reading through my dictionary several times I came up with "Roost" for the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn mainly I think because I nearly used Perch for my "P" word last time and I needed to use some Tim Holtz stamps as I was getting withdrawals..............lol


 
 
I decided to keep to  black and white  leaving the dictionary page unaltered apart from the stamping
with Black Versamark ink. 
 
 
 
 
I have used some of my fav Tim Holtz Bird stamps I love the distressed silhouette effect they give, thanks for looking and once again huge thanks for all the kind comments you all left on my "P" pages.
 
Hope you have all had a good Easter break despite the cold weather and stayed warm and eaten lots of chocolate.........
 
 
'till next time

  17. Love the black and white background with the text showing and those gorgeous stamps on top of it. This is such a clever take on Roost. The bird standing on the definition box makes me smile.
