This week's Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS was to AIR SMASH I did a modified air smash for the background. It had a dreamy quality that I thought went well with the sentiment. I stamped the birdcage with versamark and embossed with copper ep. I made the flowers to go on the cage. The bow was a piece of white thread that I dyed to match the background. I added touches of copper with a copper pen.



Here's the Design Team:


Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
