CAS Mix Up Card Challenge - thanks

It's July, and time for a new CAS Mix Up Challenge
I'm pretty new to this Challenge, but it's already one of my favorite ones. It introduces me to new media and shows me how to use it. It's so fun to try new things every month!



Here's my card - stamping, tissue paper, die-cutting:



I love the colored tissue paper texture. It looks and feels like Washi paper.
I splattered Gold Perfect Pearl over the colored tissue paper, and pasted it on the white panel. I die-cut a leaf image out from the panel, framed the panel, and raised it with foam tape. 



I went overboard today and made a bunch of colored tissue paper, so I'm looking forward to using it for future cards! 😃


Stamp: Vintage Leaves, Endless Thanks (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Whisper White (Stampin' Up!), Tissue Paper
Ink: Distress Ink (Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade - Ranger), Mossy Meadow (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Leaflets Framelits Dies (Stampin' Up!), Deckled Rectangles Large Dies (Spellbinders), Perfect Pearls (Gold - Ranger), Foam Tape (3M)

Many thanks for visiting me!

I love how you die cut the colored tissue and stamped the leaf in the negative space Hideko - the Gold Perfect Pearls adds a nice touch of glitter to your card - I'm so glad you are enjoying the CAS Mix Up challenge each month and thank you for joining us! Julia xx

Love your design Hideko! Creating a leaf aperture on your tissue card front and then in-setting your stamped leaf is so cool! Glad you are having fun with tissue paper. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Beautiful textured tissue paper background for your black and white die cut leaf, Hideko. Hopefully we see more of your tissue paper finished cards my friend. The tissue paper backgrounds are addicting! TFS and joining us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs..

Yes I love the challenge too...makes you try things and yes I have lots of tissue paper 'experiments' to use later on. Love the yellow tissue paper with the splats of gold. Great idea to die cut it and raise it up. Also love how you left the leaf un-coloured. Striking card x
