I must have forgotten to take a better photo of the finished card, but you get the idea. 
It's all about playing with blendabilities & different coloured ink (other than just Memento Black).

Used corner rounder on Whisper White card stock, sponged edges with coordinating ink & mounted onto coordinating card stock.

Choose which way you want the images to flow (down or sideways), I choose down.
Cut a strip of card stock (Basic Black) to 2 3/8" x  9 1/2".
Score at 2", 2 3/4", 3 1/2", 4 1/4".

Add some sticky strip to the back of each image, I put it at the top because I want them to flow down (if you want it to go sideways you will need to add the sticky strip to the side).

Prefold scorelines on Black card stock.
Adhere images starting at the bottom (2" scoreline) & working your way up. You want them just below the scoreline.
(The navy doesn't show up very well on the black, but you should have even spacing on the sides & top).

All images on the Basic Black strip of card stock.

Flip over & add sticky strip at the very bottom of the black card stock .

Add another piece of Basic Black card stock measuring 3/4" x 4 1/8", meeting edges together at the bottom, & centre the strip in the middle of the tab.

Now it's ready to be attached to a card front.

I used Stampin' Write Markers to colour the image from Cheerful Christmas to make the background. I coloured it then stamped at least three time without reinking (just breathe on it in between to make the ink go further).

Colours: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive.

Line up the waterfall image strip on the card front, punch holes to add brads so you can secure the image strip to the card front. 

I found it easier to keep the card front separate from the card base up to this point.

Once the card is altogether, pull down the black strip of card stock so you can punch a hole in the bottom.

I ended up using a Crop-a-dile to get a better size.

Add some ribbon or twine, & your all done.

Just playing around with more colours.
Calypso Coral ink with Calypso Coral & Blush Blendabilities.
Baked Brown sugar ink with Night of Navy & colour lifter Blendabilities.
I'm only showing you this photo because I liked the Calypso Coral one, but haven't gotten around to making a card out of it yet.

More playing, more colours. It's just fun!
