Flying Kitties!

Off on a flight of fancy today, and I apologise to all bird lovers (myself included) but I just know cats would love to have wings.
This is my entry for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge No. 34 for which I have made three mini collage fragments. The collages are made using an old book page, Artchix images and wing transparency, plus some German Scrap and some computer generated words.
My tag is coloured with Lettuce Color Wash, stamped in Olive Archival ink, and sprayed with Crafty Notions White Spray to give a softer effect. The edges are distressed and inked with Vintage Photo, and the tag is finished off with some Ideology bits and bobs.
I'm also going to post a picture of my inky metal tag that I made for last weeks challenge. Better late than never!! I was really short of time, so it's a simple card made by embossing some metal using a TSS Kabuka, ageing with black acrylic paint and then colouring with Alcohol Inks.
