My musical inspiration is 'Swan Lake' as seen in the movie 'Black Swan'.  I'm not really a ballet person, but I love this film.

Fluttershine at Ching-Chou Kuik

It's week two of our inspiration posts over at Ching-Chou Kuik's Challenge Blog.  Don't forget our theme this month is CHRISTMAS/FIREWORKS and you can enter your fabulous creations here.



This week the team were challenged to Sparkle & Shine and I have used Crimson Moon to create an easel stepper card.  Usually I make a stepper card OR an easel card, so I thought it would be cool to do a combination.   I love these card styles as they give lots of areas to decorate.

  • Coloured cardstock
  • G45 'Flutter' designer papers
  • X-Cut nesting dies - Square Parenthesis
  • Swarovski Hotfix crystals & enamel dots
  • Distress Oxide - Wilted Violet

  • Glitter Gel Pens
  • Prismacolor Pencils


It's not so easy to tell in this photo, but there is a lot of sparkle & shine with the glitter gel pens and the Swarovski crystal
