Be Yourself - July CAS Mix Up Challenge Reminder

It's the 15th and today I have a reminder post for the July CAS Mix Up Challenge

 For my card today, I used stamping, tissue paper, Small Talk Stickers and sequins.
I started with a piece of Tissue Wrap/Melange from Tim Holtz.  The design is already printed on the tissue.   I cut a piece with the design I wanted and taped  the edges to hold it flat on my work table.  I sprinkle just a little bit of Brushos over the paper - Ultra Marine over the butterfly and Orange on the areas around the butterfly.  Then I spritzed just a little water over it - just enough to make the Brushos react.   I dried the piece with my heat tool and then cut it to 3 7/8" x 3 1/4" size.
I adhered the tissue to the top of my card base using my tape runner.  I added a Small Talk sticker and sequins, stamping the sentiment below the panel.  
Here you can see all the different bits of colors in each Brusho - especially the orange -  if you spritz the Brushos with more water it just turns into watercolor paint and you lose the details of the colors.
The stamped sentiment is from the Clearly Sentimental About Art set from MFT.
I added a birthday sentiment inside as I always need birthday cards,  but I could have left it blank to use as an encouragement card.
You'll find links to videos on ways to use Tissue Paper, the linky for your creations,  as well as some pretty awesome inspiration for the Design Team here.   You have until July 24th to show us how you use tissue/stamps/and a media of your choice!

So pretty Julia. I love how you've left the texture with the Brushos by only spritzing with a little water. It is so creative and works perfectly with this patterned tissue. Great combination of colours with blue and orange. That sentiment is fantastic. xx
