It was some time ago that I decided upon Kiss & Kinetic for my Baroque Guild "K" Alphatag & to use one of my solid butterfly stamps for the kissing technique. I still had that in mind when making my previous card for the Clever Cards exercise & so deliberately chose to use a flower for that one in order that there should be some variety between the two. However, when it came to finding a paper from my Guild Pack to match the butterfly, I was thwarted & kept coming back to this pinky red floral paper (with the same pattern as I'd already used). Moreover, the solid floral image from the Fantasy Floral set worked beautifully with the patterend egg from the Baroque Eggs set when it came to showing the fusion of the two images during the kissing technique so I just went with it & ended up with two floral waterfalls after all.

I was really pleased with this as the three stages of the waterfall demonstrate the kissing technique beautifully. For the first image the solid floral stamp was inked with pink & stamped. For the second image the patterned stamp was inked with red & stamped onto the CLEAN solid flower which was then stamped onto the cardstock. Finally for the third image the solid flower was inked with pink, the patterned image with red, the two stamps pressed together & the solid stamp used for stamping the image onto the cardstock.
