My challenge to the CCEE Stampers this week was to make either a waterfall card or a free-standing pop-up card. I made a garden waterfall. Recently we were over at my SIL's for a barbecue. I was out in the garden with her husband, and admiring the pond. He said it had a small cascade water feature, which he didn't use much because it was too loud, but he turned it on to show me - and oh my, it stank!! No problems like that with this waterfall :D.
I used the Tutorial here at SCS. I used stitching to hold my vertical strip down, rather than brads.
A2 base, green Bazzill, Basic Grey Picadilly.
The stamps are Hero Arts Garden Thoughts, stamped on watercolour paper with Versafine Black and coloured with distress inks (forest moss, worn lipstick, barn door, scattered straw, spiced marmalade, tumbled glass, stormy sky). The individual panels can be seen HERE.
If you're joining in with your own free standing pop-up or waterfall card, be sure to use the keyword here or link your card on the CCEE blog :D.

Sabrina, this is so pretty and I do like how you used the stitching..great idea. Cute tab, too. I'm so glad you gave this particular challenge so I could try something new and I must say it was fun, fun.

Ah...the waterfall card, completely lovely! This is the first type of "technique" I ever tried, and it took Mr. Buckle to figure it out for me! Lol. Love the stitching, just beautiful!

If I hadn't decided on Christmas, I was going to go with the flower garden waterfall. This is so lovely and pretty, Sabrina. I love the sideway waterfall, the soft pastels, and your terrific stitching. Thank you for making us stretch outside our comfort zone this week.
