MCC Card Design Workshop Wk 3 - Waterfall Card

Links: Glenda Waterworth, My Creative Classroom (MCC)

One of the cards Glenda demonstrated making was the "Waterfall Card" which includes a kinetic or interactive element. Since I'd already decided that I was going to use the waterfall movement for my next Baroque Guild Alphatag it seemed the logical choice for my third Clever Card exercise.

NB I cannot explain why there is a green tinge to the photos above. The green tinge is actually a crisp white & despite varying the time of day & light conditions when photographing the photos  produced have a green tinge. 
Stamps Chocolate Baroque UA4SP0146 Big Flowers & UDLSP0155 Delightful Damask (sentiment).
Inks Memories Dye Black (images & sentiment), Memento Sweet Plum (inking various cardstock & paper edges).
Pens etc... Memento Tuxedo Black Dual Marker, White Pentel K118 Hybrid Gel Grip Pen.
Colouring Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils with paper stumps & Sansodor.
Cardstock White card blank (Craft UK Ltd); white & an assortment of mauves in various finishes from stash.
Paper Graphicus Guild Membership Pack.
Punches Woodware (circle & scalloped circle).
The ribbons, floral brads & eyelet are from stash.

Hello Paula

I've had a slow week, one of those where I never get done what I planned and I can see I missed some lovely work. You Joseph's coat technique is so eye catching and as it's an easel as well, get the thumbs up from me.

A waterfall card is something I have never made, but really like your, especially how you have graduated the pinks of the flowers moving up the tabs.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
