C is for Cage

Hello Everybody!

I made this ATC for the Alphabet challenge going on at The Craft Barn.  The letter is C for this challenge.  I used the word cage.  I built a little cage on my ATC card using jewerly wire.  At the top I tied some ribbons and a little twine.  I also used a Tim Holtz bird charm and colored it with alcohol inks.  The bird can actually "fly" when you move the card back and forth :)

Here is a straight on view.  The background is inked with TH Distress Inks and I did a white embossing resist with the swirly stamp.

Here is a side view.  I was trying to capture the 3-D effect of the cage.  (good thing this isn't a photo contest) ;)

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my's time to fly! ;)
