I initially had six words picked out but in the end went with 'Manor' because the difinition of the word (which you need to have showing) was at the bottom of the page leaving plenty of space for my image and embellishments.
The stamp is by Stampendous CRY024 called Contry Manor so fitted my theme perfectly.
A good rummage in my odds box produced some green braiding (which reminded me of the heavy trapestry curtains in old houses), deep burgandy trim and old english lace that I had dyed pink. years ago. The whole page has been painted using a match pot paint 'Willow Tree' diluted down with water to show the dictionay wording beneath. The stamped image has been coloured in using pastel chalks and distress markers, then cut with a Sizzix nestie die. The letter M downloaded from here.
