"Flights of Fantasy........." MMSC Sketch Challenge #51

Hi again! I hope everyone has had a great weekend..... My Dad has been visiting me from Florida this past week and I've had difficulty find time to create. I haven't seen him in 4 years and crafting took a back seat.  This weeks Challenge card, details found HERE, was a little rushed and not quite as detailed and elaborate as I like to do. The one element that I really liked was making pearls on my flourish stamp with my black "Viva Decor Paper Pen"  and then sprinkling black glitter on top of them. I dont think the pics show how pretty they are....

The details:

Stamps:  Inkadinkado "Birds Galore", "Dot Flourishes"

Paper:    Bazzill Basics,  SU Black, Neenah Solar Crest #120 and #80, Me and My Big Ideas (black and
               white patterned paper, white stripes colored aqua with marker)

Ink:       Color Box Pigment Ink (sponging), Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic BG32 Aqua Mist  (airbrushing
             and coloring birds)

Other:    Viva Decor Paper Pen, MS Onyx Glitter, Stardust Stickles, MS Border Punch, EK Success
              Border Punch, White Rose from WILD ORCHID CRAFTS  is airbrushed and glittered. White silk
              flower airbrushed black. Ribbon from Michael's. Clear rhinestones were airbrushed with BG32.

Thanks for having a look and I can't wait to get started on next weeks sketch! Have a great week everybody...
