SDC13: Wings, Wings, Wings

I decided it was about time i joined in with the Stampotique Designers Challenge
I've been meaning to take part for weeks now but just never got around to it, till now that is.
The ever so talented Effie posted about a slight alteration she made to the Timmy bird cage and i thought it looked so cool I just had to try it out.
I've used 'girl with heart purse' who i coloured with copics, added padded silver wings too and then placed next to her altered cage home.
The blue flowers are grungepaper and if your heading off to Stevenage today for Stamperama, head on over to The Artistic Stamper stand where the lovely Hels will be doing make and takes {of these very flowers i believe} Sadly i'll be hard at work while you're all enjoying the stash frenzy, I am of course willing to except any gifts you feel you need to buy me in lou of me being able to attend rolf.. well a gal can try can't she! But seriously I do hope anyone going has a fabby day.
Anyways back to the tag which I finished using my trusty dymo for the words.
And thats your lot.
Oh look i totally forgot...Durrrr... The background was a dusty concord/perfect pearl spritz mix, sprayed onto a kitchen towel and then dabbed all over the tag, a lace border stamped down one side in broken china.
 Righty that really is your lot now..
*Happy Creating*
