Cage begins with C!

Ooh! Time for another in the fortnightly Dragons Dream Tag It On alphabet challenge and this fortnight my 'old mucker' Helen chose the letter C and metal - remember the only rules are to use at least one stamp and a tag.
I had lots of ideas for this one and finally narrowed it down to a birdcage and wanted it to look a bit distressed and so overheated the silver embossing powder so it bubbled up and looked like it had been outside in the rain for a few years! 
I needed an anchor for the cage and turned to my trusty bird on a branch die that meant I could hang up the cage! Just needed a new occupant and so I stamped the butterfly on some paper and stuck it to a scrap of Clearly for Art so I could shape the wings.
We do hope you'll join in with us this fortnight and that you're enjoying these recipes as much as we are!
